Links between Igenea and other DNA testing companies
« on: Tuesday 16 January 18 10:24 GMT (UK) »
I've tested with FTDNA (autosomal, mt) and Ancestry autosomal). I've had my parents test with FTDNA as well (autosomal, my dad's Y-chromosome). I've uploaded all the autosomal results to Gedmatch.

I'm rather confused as someone who has tested with Igenea has got in touch, saying we're 4th cousins. I haven't tested with Igenea and as far as I'm aware, you can't upload Igenea results to Gedmatch.

How have they found the match? Unless they've paid to upload their results to FTDNA or Ancestry - is that possible? (I know you can with some companies, but I know vanishingly little about Igenea!). Or do FTDNA or Ancestry supply results to other companies for matches? (I can't see them doing that as they'd presumably need permission).

I'm just... somewhat confused!

It seems that FTDNA is in partnership with Igenea;

Thank you!

That might explain it then...!
