Wow! September looks like it will be a great month for genealogy. This is what I've heard so far.

  • Other improvements coming soon to FTDNA are "exact matches" filter as search option, Updating Family Finder match dates to original match date, and the ability to accept the new raw Data format of the AncestryDNA uploads/autosomal transfers.
