Monday Mailbox: AncestryDNA Abroad

The Ancestry Insider's Monday MailboxDear Ancestry Insider,

Will the Ancestry DNA test be available in Canada soon? Can you explain the delay, please?

Thanks,
Sue

Dear Sue,

I contacted Ancestry.com. This was their reply:

There are many factors when offering a DNA test at large scale internationally. These include issues relating to international logistics and regulations, which we are reviewing. It is our hope to offer AncestryDNA internationally and we will let our members know as soon as an AncestryDNA test is available in their market.

  1. I live in Canada and rested the moment the DNA tests were available so was able to get it done. Later they were cancelled. However, my son lives in the US and Ancestry wont let me test him on my account (he has no interest other than keeping mom happy)

  2. FTDNA is available in Canada. When AncestryDNA does become available outside the US, there is not likely to be a big rush except for those who have US ancestry - I do not, so would not likely find many matches there.
