    First, you should upload to My Heritage (it's free). If you need more matches, you can buy the Ancestry kit. If that's still not enough, buy the 23&me kit as well.

      As far as Family Finder goes, you will definitely have a lot more matches at Ancestry, because their database is many times larger. But they advertise their test as a way to find your ethnicity, so, as you might expect most people have no trees and don't reply to email. They sign in once or twice after they get their results, look at their ethnicity report and never sign in again.

      The worst thing is, they have no chromosome browser.

      I have about a dozen Harpring matches there, but only one here, however not one of the Harpring matches at Ancestry will reply to email, so there's no way to know what segments we share. Same with Calvin. 2 or 3 here and dozens there, but no way to do any triangulating and segment mapping.

      If Ancestry had a chromosome browser I might have been able to break down a brick wall by now.

        are there any other web site beside gedmatch and dnaland. I feel buying new kit is disappointment since i already have the dna raw date from FTDNA

          You might also have some settings on your FTDNA kit that block you from seeing more matches. I saw this happen with someone else's kit once. Do the following.

          Log into your kit. Move your mouse over your kit number shown on the top right side of the screen. Go to Account Settings. Then click on Match and Email Settings. In the Family Finder Matches settings click "Yes" for all 4 categories (Immediate, Close, Distant, and Speculative). If you have "No" on any of these, that will explain why some of your matches do not appear.

          There are no other sites where you can transfer your raw data that will be of use other than MyHeritage. You would need to order new kits on other places like Ancestry and 23andMe.

                How many matches do you have? Most of my project members have 3,000 to 4,000. Members who transferred from the new Ancestry have less than 1,000.

                At one time you had to have an Ancestry account to have all of the Ancestry DNA results. I don't know if this is still true or not.

                  I haven't tried to transfer to MyHeritage yet. It is possible they are having issues as they are still new to this. Or perhaps they don't accept FTDNA data? Make sure to try the options I mentioned before in case you have some of your FTDNA matches blocked.

                  Well he says he took the Family Finder and has not taken AncestryDNA. He is trying to transfer FTDNA data to MyHeritage.

                  As for the Ancestry account stuff, a free Ancestry account is all one needs to see their AncestryDNA matches. You do need a subscription to look at public trees and use some of the tools. You can contact your matches for free though as long as you do it through the DNA page and not through a member's profile page.

                    Recent immigrant ancestry affects the no. of matches you get. My mother has one grandparent with colonial American ancestry, one grandparent who immigrated from France, and two descended from people who immigrated from France and Germany between 1842 and 1886. She has 1182 matches.

                    My father was the son of Italian immigrants. He has only 128 matches.

                      How many matches did you get on FTDNA? Do you have any Ashkenazic background? If so that should give you a lot of matches but few clues as to the common ancestor.

                              My mother has hardly any matches, other than relatives I've asked to test, who have a longest segment over 30 cM!

                              At Ancestry she has 75 perhaps. It's hard to tell as she tends to share multiple segments with close matches there, and they don't tell you the longest segment. It's extremely rare for her to share more than one segment over 5 cM with anyone at FTDNA (excluding family members, of course).
