I was reading WikiTree and saw mention of https://www.yourdnaportal.com/

YourDNAportal is a website based in England that offers free DNA analysis and matching with relatives. They are not a testing company. Instead, you upload your raw data autosomal DNA test results from 23andMe, AncestryDNA, MyHeritageDNA, Family Tree DNA), etc.

Has anyone used it?  Any comments?  It sounds like another Gedmatch.

Never heard of them.

DNA comparison websites are only of any effective use in matching you to relatives if they have a huge database of members.

I may well be wrong but with only 208 followers on Instagram that indicates to me that they may well be a startup.

Looks like they are in the Traits market also.

I will not be uploading any data to them.

Including susceptibility to coronavirus. (Is there such a test?)

I've no idea whether they hit you with charges once you've registered and selected the report you want, and I've no plans to find out, but the whole site reminded me of the adage that if a service is free, you are the product.
Researching among others:
Bartle, Bilton, Bingley, Campbell, Craven, Emmott, Harcourt, Hirst, Kellet(t), Kennedy,
Meaburn, Mennile/Meynell, Metcalf(e), Palliser, Robinson, Rutter, Shipley, Stow, Wilkinson
