For those of you who have been tested by FTDNA, it appears to me that there will be
no substantial downside to the changes being made. They now say that you may copy
your existing matches if you want to, but then goes on to say BUT WE DON'T SEE WHY
YOU WOULD WANT TO.
Also, all of the matches at 33/37 and 60/67 and better will still be there so I see
no reason now to print out a copy of existing matches.
Meanwhile, there should be a substantial upside to the improvement in the FTDNA
Tip Tool which calculates the percentage probability of having a most common ancestor with any of your matches. They call this calculation the Time to Most Recent Common Ancestor (TMRCA). Two administrators, Barry McCain, of the Ulster Heritage Group and Joseph V. Dononhoe, of the Breifne Clans Project, have long regarded the FTDNA calculation to be unnecessarily conservative. They have been using probabilities of 55% to 85% as being all that is needed to determine
the number of generations to the Most Recent Common Ancestor(MRCA.
