Jut for fun...

I noticed your Gedmatch kit number and just for fun ran the "people who match one or both of us" program expecting nothing. There are ten people who have >= 10cM matches to both of us!!!

A006809
Thomas, Davies, Jones, Walters, Daniel in Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion. That should narrow it down a bit!
Vincent: Fressingfield, Suffolk, Stockton & Sunderland.
Murtha/Murtaugh: Dundalk & Sunderland
Ingram: Cairnie by Huntly, Scotland then Abergavenny
Bardouleau: London - in memory of my stepmother Annie Rose née Bardouleau who put up with a lot from me.

My ancestors are probably turning in their graves, not that I can actually find any of them.

Re-Living DNA's pending partnership with FindMyPast and their  offer to "accept transfer of autDNA from Ancestry and FTDNA for a limited period"  which I think expires on 31st Aug.

Has anyone done this successfully? The link does not appear to be working now.

Yes,sorry the link works but I am obviously not doing something correctly.

I am trying to upload autDNA from FTDNA -( I am signed in) I get the "already tested  with another company" and it shows the red upload - cannot work out how to get the data(which is saved in "downloads"  to upload to Living DNA ???

Kim, I think that's a question for their help desk. Are you sure it hasn't successfully uploaded, meaning that the message you are getting is correct?  Have you very carefully read the instructions?

Thanks Martin - no, I do not get the feeling that it is completing,it goes from upload to filling in name and e-mail of person whose DNA it is then goes back to the Home Page!

I will contact them,hopefully get a reply before 31st !!

Update!

E-mailed LivingDNA yesterday(BH) reply today(quick or what!) to the effect that if you wish to upload another living adults' autDNA they have to open a seperate account themselves ,which is not quite what is implied in the blog where it says "you give the name and e-mail address of person and LivingDNA will e-mail them within 24hrs for thier consent"
