Oops! Forgot to answer the other part. I don't know what ancestry prices are but I do know of people who have transferred their results over to FTDNA. Family Tree has been around since 2000 so their database is much larger to compare your results to. I also noticed recently when I searched for their Dawson project to see who was listed for their patriarch's that there wasn't project results available for me to see. That's one of the things I look for because I went to see what people/areas have already tested before I joined a project. fTDNA also has ysearch to upload your results to. that compares your test results to other countries world wide. i dont use that part as yet in any of my projects. Hope that helps.
