So, why use FamilyTreeDNA (FTDNA) instead of Ancestry or 23AndMe?
- ...FTDNA has a proven track record of protecting the privacy of its users...
- FTDNA has no additional costs associated with testing, although they do offer a variety of additional tests that you may want to explore.
- FTDNA offers YDNA and mtDNA tests and 23andMe offers a health report. Neither MyHeritage DNA or AncestryDNA offers additional tests at this time.
- Family Tree DNA has the longest track record of responsible user management, a well-developed database of (mostly) enthusiastic matches and the most powerful in-house tools for serious research. However, family tree integration is weak and their database is not as large as some of the others.

Personal suggestion from OP regarding actual integration with mapping your family tree:
I went with FamilyTreeDNA for my DNA testing and a combination of the free services/sites WikiTree.com [wikitree.com]
(to which you can upload your DNA data—if you want) and FamilySearch.org [FamilySearch.org]
for their vast collection of public records. Also, there are web browser extensions which allow for integration between those two sites.
I am not
affiliated with any DNA or genealogy service/site and the only incentive I have in posting this deal is finding some distant relatives.
I'm just a cheapskate amateur genealogist. I've never used Ancestry.com because I'm not about to get into a contract or some kind of recurring-fee-based genealogy service. But if that's how you roll, you do you.
