    3. One of my male nephews has taken an Ancestry test. I know nothing about the test, but  I have the password etc. and am able to log in to the correct page. So far I have viewed only comic-book details; I have been unable to find and view marker results. As usual, this is a last-minute panic search. I received the password this morning and as I'm off to the AGM tomorrow can progress this no further. I want the actual data to upload to the Dunbar DNA Project. Any help appreciated.  Be warned - I'll be seeking help at the AGM!!!!! Pat Dunbar #2248

    3. She just has to go to dna.ancestry.com and click on *SETTINGS on the right hand side. On the right hand side of the next page is a button entitled DOWNLOAD RAW DNA DATA. The system will then ask for her password, and ask her to to click on a waiver checkbox. Then they will email her further instructions. After she saves the file to her hard drive, then have her go to the link for Family Tree DNA: https://www.familytreedna.com/autosomal-transfer On Thu, Mar 22, 2018 at 8:43 AM, Patrick R. L.

    3. Pat I don't know if you got an answer to your question at the conference or not but your post only came through to the list yesterday so I'm replying here. The AncestryDNA test is an autosomal DNA test so it is not compatible for comparisons with the Y-DNA results in your surname project. However, what your nephew can do is transfer his AncestryDNA results to the Family Tree DNA Family Finder database. He will need to download his raw data from AncestryDNA and then upload it to FTDNA. He can follow the instructions in this link: https://www.familytreedna.com/autosomal-transfer Once he has an FTDNA kit number and password he would be able to join your DNA project. Assuming you've already had your Y-DNA tested at FTDNA, there would be no need for your nephew to take a Y-DNA test as well as he would be expected to have the same Y-DNA signature as you.
