Bob,

The 23andMe database is over 35K.  FTDNA could grow its database rapidly (if it has the processing capability) by allowing free transfers.  Free transfers would allow FTDNA to grow its database.  What I am not clear about is whether the 23andMe raw data has enough coverage for the Family Finder matching to be reasonably comprehensive.  Maybe a Family Finder beta tester could tell us if a head-to-head comparison has been made.

Regards,

Larry
