I received this notice from giving details on the retiring of their Y-DNA and mtDNA tests and results from their website and database.  They give detailed information of how to salvage what you can from your test results before they scrap the projects.  Read this carefully and follow the directions to save what you can from these tests for which you paid good money.

Reminder: Your Y-DNA and mtDNA results will no longer be available as of September 30, 2014
A few months ago, we sent a notification that we are retiring the Y-DNA and mtDNA tests and that your results will no longer be available online. The original deadline of September 5 has been extended to September 30 in order to give you extra time to access your results. After September 30, 2014, you will no longer be able to view Y-DNA and mtDNA results on the website.

Important: This does not affect the AncestryDNA autosomal DNA test. We continue to offer the AncestryDNA service and are fully committed to supporting and expanding its’ capabilities. AncestryDNA has a vibrant and growing user community, now over ½ million strong, and a team of 11 Ph.D. scientists dedicated to providing new breakthroughs with DNA for family history.

Preserving your Y-DNA and mtDNA results
To save the results of Y-DNA and mtDNA tests, there are two popular options.
Download your raw DNA data. For instructions on downloading your raw data, please read this guide to downloading your Y-DNA or mtDNA data.

Print your results. For instructions on printing your results, please read this guide to printing your Y-DNA or mtDNA results.
