  • Ancestry is dumping their Y-DNA and mtDNA samples

    Not sure if this is the correct forum to post this. is getting out of the mtDNA and Y-DNA business. They are planning to simply dump their samples.

    I'm not sure what that means for the results of all of the people who trusted their advertising and tested with them.

    Thank you for posting this link, I've just signed it. I found my closest yDNA match (outside known family) on the old Sorenson site, and the family transferred the results here. It would be insanity to destroy those samples. But this is why I haven't tested with Ancestry - I don't trust them because I attached records to my tree that I paid for through a subscription, and now that I no longer pay to keep that going, I can't access the records.
