Dear Rebecca,
Emily Aulicino recently posted the following information on the
ISOGG list. She discussed this with Bennett Greenspan at FTDNA and it
appears that people who were tested at 23andMe will be able to upload their
23andMe data to Family Finder for a $40 fee.

Bennett told me that of the 540,000 markers FF tests, only 290,000 will
match 23andMe These 290,000 include the exact number of matches between
23andMe and FF and those which can be properly converted. Remember the two
companies are using different chips. FTDNA is more focused on genealogy
than 23andMe.

ALSO, that uploading 23andMe to FF will happen after FF has been out a bit.

Once someone uploads 23andMe and if they choose to purchase FF the cost of
uploading (currently set at $40) will reduce the price of purchase. At that
time (when FF is ordered) 23andMe uploads will disappear.

Do we yet know Whether FTDNA 23andMe will allow a result to be uploaded
to their audience Family Finder database [atDNA equivalent of Their
Ysearch] or if they will even have one?
