  5. 5. On this Join page there will be an orange button at the bottom labeled JOIN. Click that button.
  6. 6. There is a chance you might see an error message. IGNORE IT.
  7. 7. Wait for an email confirming that you are in the project. We know your registration was successfully processed when we see your name and kit number show up in the member list.
  8. 8. If you do not see a confirmation email within 24-48 hours of sending your join request, email the Project Administrator.

If you have not yet done Y-DNA or Family Finder testing, or you need to transfer a third party DNA test to Family Tree DNA, click here to order the appropriate product.

Transferring a Third Party Y-DNA Product to FTDNA

If you purchase one of FTDNA's $58 transfer products you will see 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 same as the ones that are 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.
