Re: DNA matches by country #dna

Hi Ed. The original question was finding the locations of ancestors, not surnames.
However, if you want to search the surname of the tester, and NOT their ancestors, then you could download the CSV data, but why? You can do that search in FTDNA. The search box allows you to search on names, or ancestor names, or all, or other options. That is determined by the filter applied to the search.
The names in the CSV file will not find ancestors, or anyone who used an alias, or used their married name. It would not guarantee to provide the name you want.
