No. FTDNA is going to offer something that is stable and usable to
genealogists. deCODEme did not do that....

I have heard that it will be possible to import 23andMe data but for

At FTDNA, it will be a database of genealogists and people tested by
genealogists. So I guess you those of us who test there will have to
live without the What is a GedCom questions that my new "5th" cousins
