Uploading a Data File

Learn how simple it is to upload your 23andMe or AncestryDNA data files.

Finding Your Data

It’s easy to find your data and upload it. If you’ve already had your DNA tested by 23andMe or Ancestry.com, it’s as easy as downloading your data file and uploading it to our website.
