Transferring a Third Party Y-DNA Product to FTDNA

If you order one of FTDNA's $58 third party Y-DNA products, you will see your matches.

If you order one of FTDNA's $19 third party Y-DNA products, you will not see matches in your FTDNA account. The project administrators of any projects you join will see only the markers which were tested at the third party company, which may not necessarily be the ones tested at FTDNA.

If you purchase the $19 transfer, then later decide you want to upgrade and see Y-DNA matches, you take the following steps:

  1. Log in to your FTDNA account.
  2. Click the orange ORDER AN UPGRADE button.
  4. Choose (as an example) UPGRADE Y-DNA46 to Y-DNA37.
  5. Once that testing is completed, you will see your FTDNA matches.

Transferring a Third Party A-DNA Product to FTDNA

The appropriate product for transferring autosomal DNA (A-DNA) is called Autosomal DNA Transfer.
