Importing of DNA test results
The volunteer administrators for the Family Tree DNA Surname Projects received the information which is copied below.This is a great (cheap!) opportunity to have non-FTDNA test results added to the huge database at FTDNA.Those who try it should be pleasantly surprised at the benefits.If you have questions feel free to contact me.

We are pleased to announce the launch of a new feature we hope will benefit your projects: Y-DNA "Third Party" uploads.
This will allow for the upload of 33 and 46-marker Y-DNA test results from Ancestry, GeneTree and Sorensen's SMGF. This was a natural development since the necessary tools were created to import the DNA Heritage database after they ceased operations. While the DNA Heritage transfer is free of charge as a result of that acquisition, we will be charging a nominal fee of $19 per person to import third party results into Family Tree DNA. This $19 fee will be credited to customers who order upgrades or add-ons.
For an additional $39, customers who transfer their third party results will also have additional markers tested so that they can receive matches to Family Tree DNA's 25 or 37-marker level, ancestral origins, and other features of the personal page.
Please forward the following link to those who may be interested in ordering the Third Party transfer:
What do you get when you transfer third party results?
The $19 fee will provide the customer with a Family Tree DNA personal page which will allow them to join Family Tree DNA projects freely. This means results will be available to the administrator and included on the project's public page for comparison with other project members.
The $58 fee ($19 transfer fee + $39 for the added markers to Family Tree DNA's 25 or 37-marker level) will include the same features provided to Family Tree DNA customers in their personal pages.
