This post is long overdue since I have had my ethnic results from FamilyTreeDNA since August of this year. That same month I made blog post on how to transfer your raw data from AncestryDNA to FamilyTreeDNA.
The advantages of doing this is that it is free but you only get to see your top 20 matches at FamilyTreeDNA. If want the full results then you only pay $39.00. Even at that, it is better than paying $99.00 for their FamilyFinder test. You can read more about this here “Transfer Your AncestryRAW Data to Family Tree DNA“.
Here are my Ethnic Results From FamilyTreeDNA
FTDNA gives you the following tool called MyOrigins which lets you view at a glance the world view of your results and bellow in the left bottom corner it gives you your matches and lets you see the world view of their results.
Now, here is the cut out of my results for better viewing.
Since I used the same raw data from AncestryDNA, I thought that the ethnic results would be the same but I was wrong. Just to recap these are my results from AncestryDNA; Africa 2%, America 25%, Europe 68%, and West Asia 5%. Check this post for a detailed view: “Great news! My AncestryDNA results are in!“
Even-though I am very well aware of both company’s notice that their results are based on their own data populations and that results may change when that said data is update. I knew that they would be different but I liked the results from ancestry better.
I like it better because you get a better breakdown of your ethnicity make up.
Well there you have it, these are my results.
