    Not sure if you realize, but the 23andmeV5 chip only contains around 160,000 SNPs that can be used by FTDNA.
    FTDNA tests around 700,000 SNPs
    You can not get a very accurate comparison between two people when only comparing 160,000 SNPs.

    23andmeV4 contained approx 312,000 SNPs that can be used by FTDNA. One only could receive partial match lists at FTDNA, No distant matches

    23andmeV3 contained approx 690,000 SNPs that can be used by FTDNA. This version received full match lists at FTDNA

    As you see, 23andme, with each newer version, started testing different SNPs. FTDNA can not compare their SNPs to 23andme if the SNPs are not the same (SNP name and position) .

    Yes, this stinks. You are blaming FTDNA for something that 23andMe did. Why don't you blame 23andMe?

    You won't be able to upload your V5 file to MyHeritage, and currently it can only be uploaded to Gedmatch Genesis, but not the main Gedmatch site.

    It is 23andMe that has decided to make a considerable change to the chip they use and therefore the file you can download from them. FamilyTreeDNA hasn't changed anything.

    On this page:
    https://www.familytreedna.com/autosomal-transfer

    it currently says
    "Please note that you can only transfer the following versions from 23andMe© and AncestryDNA™:

    23andMe© V3
    23andMe© V4
    AncestryDNA™ V1
    AncestryDNA™ V2"

Even if they did, it would be so incomplete that you would have tons of matches missing.

    The fix I made is only a small percentage different from the previous Ancestry.com results, so its not missing enough data to matter.

    Hi Ann, I responded to your PM...

    23andMe V5 is SO DIFFERENT from all previous versions that the only place you can upload it to is Gedmatch Genesis. The original version of Gedmatch won't accept it.

    Your suggestion that FTDNA not accepting it because they want more money is untrue, unfair and frankly rather paranoid.

    Did you contact Chris Bona, by private message on these forums, as he linked to on that page?

    The main minus for Ancestry is the fact you must pay a subscription fee to see all of the information about your matches. You can buy several Family Finder kits for the cost of their annual subscription. And you have to use their contact system to try to reach your matches because Ancestry doesn't provide their email addresses.

    Anyone trying to transfer Ancestry's new format would get many more matches if they bought a test from FTDNA, based on what I have seen from the recent transfers into my projects.
    Ancestry doesn't care about fixing anything.

    If they cared about DNA testers they would have a chromosome browser.

    I tested first at FTDNA then at Ancestry.

    At GEDmatch FTDNA kit says:

    Number of SNPs utilized by GEDmatch template = 708934

    Kit Tnnnnnn has approximately 66140 total matches with other kits.
    Of these matches there are 13435 >= 7cM and 52705 < 7cM.

    At GEDmatch Ancestry kit says:

    Number of SNPs utilized by GEDmatch template = 460449

    Kit Annnnnn has approximately 36269 total matches with other kits.
    Of these matches there are 7995 >= 7cM and 28274 < 7cM.

    Big difference with number of SNPs used and number of matches >= 7cM.

    The main plus for Ancestry is the size of their tested database.

    My top DNA match at FTDNA is my number 17 match at Ancestry.

    Bad news is that not one of my top 16 at Ancestry is at GEDmatch.

    Wow, I can't believe they still haven't fixed this! But I am glad the tool is helping those in need! Merry Christmas!
