Good job everyone…..looks like we did it. We knew that Ancestry was going to do “something” in 2013. From this it looks like they are going to release our raw data, hopefully in a format that we can use for tools like GedMatch.
Genomeweb quotes an Ancestry representative in an article titled “Ancestry.com, Amid Criticism, Will Make Array Data Available to AncestryDNA Customers” published today, October 23, 2012:
“Few customers care; I’m sure their market research showed that,” Khan said. “The problem is that a small minority of very motivated and vocal customers, who are influencers, do care.”
One down, one to go. Join me tomorrow to discuss the “other” Ancestry problem.
Thanks to everyone who indeed was vocal and who cares!!!! You made a difference!
