      Hello Mac! There are some third party tools that accept only the 23andMe raw data format. If you happen to have only Ancestry DNA raw data you can convert it to the 23andMe format instead of having to order the genetic test separately from 23andMe. Hope this clarifies.

      Hello Nathan! Thank you for stopping by. At the moment I am unable to say when the tool will be live again. We are making some substantial changes to our website; this may take around 3-4 months. Hopefully, this should be up too by then. Hope this clarifies.
