Ancestry Autosomal Transfer update
As you may know, Ancestry has changed to a new chip for their testing, and has also recently changed the format of their autosomal raw data files. This new format is currently incompatible with the Family Tree DNA database, preventing holders of these new file types from transferring their autosomal data to Family Tree DNA. Family Tree DNA are working to adjust and make those files compatible with their system as soon as possible, and have this placed at a high priority so that those Ancestry testers who have tested under their new chip may transfer to the Family Tree DNA database.
Please note that this issue only affects those who have recently tested with Ancestry - people who have tested with Ancestry prior to the recent change in their testing chip are still able to transfer.
