  • how do we access our 1.0 My Orgins data?

    with the gen2 data being so different for many folks, how do we access our previous gen1 data?

        It's a good idea to download, take a screenshot, etc. of whatever information you get from the consumer genetic genealogy DNA testing companies, as soon as it is available to you. You never know when things will change at any of them.

        I always try to do that for those kits that I manage, so I will have it in case of changes. There have been changes at 23andMe in their Ancestry Composition (their equivalent to myOrigins here) at least once since I tested there, with no warning that I observed. I'm sure Ancestry.com has changed their ethnicity tool a time or two, again likely without a warning. And, lest we forget, Ancestry.com used to offer Y and mt-DNA tests, and those are long gone now. If you didn't have the foresight to download those results, they too are in the wind now.

        It's also good practice to download your Family Finder match list, and Chromosome Browser matches, on a regular basis. If you have any mtDNA or Y-DNA testing done, the same goes for those.

              I'm saying this company does not allow access to data it has already collected about your DNA from their gen 1 calculating model.

                they used a calculating model that they no longer use and the data they collected with that first version is not accessible to the people it was collected from. it is now obvious that you need to screen shot or whatever to save the data from their current (second) calculating model before that's gone too...as it will be different from their inevitable third version...
