How to Upload your ftDNA results to

From your ftDNA home page, go to the link with your Matches found on the left hand side of the page.

From that page, scroll down to the middle of the page until you see the link that says “Click Here to upload to” 

This will open a new page in and will allow you to create a new user ID in This page will load your results and make them ready to upload to the Ysearch database.

All you have to do is fill in at the bottom of the page, your Last name, Haplogroup (this can be found from your ftDNA home page by clicking on Haplotree link on the left side of the page), 

Which will then pull up a page and display your "predicted Haplogroup"

Next, add your contact information, additional spellings of your surname, and the most distant known paternal ancestor and country of origin. 

Then enter a password that you can easily remember, enter the captcha letters and click the “save information” button and you are done!

Make sure to copy down your user ID and password in a safe place. 


  1. Very useful! We just got my husbands results from FtDNA and were wondering what to do next! Perfect timing...

  2. Hi Heather, so cool you got his results! There are lots of things you can do with it. Did he join a surname project? That would be the first thing. There are group admins who can help you figure out what to do next.
