Living DNA test in now what
« on: Thursday 22 November 18 18:01 GMT (UK) »
Had my DNA test back from Living DNA which was interesting to say the least but now what is the best way forward with it, tried Ancestry as I have a comprehensive tree with them but they do not accept Living DNA results which is a shame as I think they are missing a trick, which are the best sites to go forward with, any ideas...

My Heritage, FTDNA and, possibly, Gedmatch.

Commiserations. You're not the only one to be disappointed as Ruskie and I withdrew our uploaded tests from Living DNA because of the delay and very little on offer.

Is that a full paid for DNA test with the ethnicity breakdown, Y and mitochondrial (maternal line) haplogroups?

Thanks for the response, personally I am quite pleased with the content of my Living DNA report which I thought was quite comprehensive, but then have not seen other reports by different providers but I did do quite a lot of research before choosing them and on balance they came out very well, my opinion of course, and it is a disappointment that Ancestry do not accept or cannot use the Living DNA report so perhaps will move tree elsewhere..

If you want to upload to another site, I believe that My Heritage are taking LivingDNA data. They have more tools than Ancestry, including a chromosome browser. It's smaller than Ancestry but I've had quite a few close matches.  I think my upload, from an Ancestry DNA, took a couple of weeks.

You could also try Gedmatch:

MyHeritage will only be giving free ethnicity breakdowns and access to the chromosome browser until the end of this month, but I believe will carry on giving free matches.
