We hope you are all doing well. As of 9 December 2019, we were informed of the changes to the terms and conditions of the website called Gedmatch.com.
We have removed all African DNA kits in our project from Gedmatch.com until further notice.
As we have always stated, read the terms and conditions of the websites that you are considering. This is a link that contains the new terms as well as their partnership with Verogen https://archive.md/qtqRS and https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20191209005819/en/GEDmatch-Partners-Genomics-Firm-Verogen
Our mission is to reconnect the African Diaspora with their families born on the continent of Africa. We will provide more details as we receive them.
What Can We Do Now?
You can check for matches through ancestry.com, myheritage.com and/or livingdna.com. If you have taken the Autosomal DNA test at ancestry.com, simply search through your match list to see if you match any kits that we manage. If you do, send a message through ancestry for a response.
If you have tested at other Autosomal testing companies, you can upload your DNA raw data to Myheritage.com or Livingdna.com for FREE to find matches. If you find that you match one of our kits, you will simply send a message through either website. Sending messages to your DNA matches through the above websites is free.
In the Meantime
We are working within the DNA testing community for a centralized secure location where kits can be uploaded and compared for matching for Genetic Genealogical purposes. We will update you as we receive more info. Until then, all of the aforementioned options are available.
Here's the link again for your info. https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20191209005819/en/GEDmatch-Partners-Genomics-Firm-Verogen
