My Origins, not in yet.

Patience is a virtue.

Yet once more it's confirmed that realism and pessimism are the same thing, especially when dealing with FTDNA. For the last 24 hours, I've been clicking on 'Awaiting Results' with increasing frequency, filled with morbid curiosity to know exactly at what point my mtDNA results from batch 674 would be recognised as delayed yet again. That point was just now. July 6-20, they're saying, and they even have the rosy-tinted optimism to specify 2016. Two weeks from today, I will again be checking back frequently, but not in the expectation of results; oh, no... I'll just need another booster shot to reinforce my cynicism. I suppose, someday, the results will come, and I'll be vaguely disappointed, because twiddling my thumbs and waiting is, quixotically, a more reliable time-waster than genealogy.

I am not surprised that my father's tests are delayed. He is an avid tobacco chewer, so they may be having problems with his tests. We cleaned his mouth the night before, took all tobacco away and then did the cheek swabs at 7:00 the next morning as soon as he woke up - nothing to eat or drink all night. But, still, I saw a little bit of brown on one of the swabs. I sure hope they are able to accurately do his tests. He is 91 years old and in poor health - we never know how long we will have him. But I do want the tests to be accurate because we may not have a chance to do more cheek swabs on him. So I will just be patient - in my case I think the lab is probably dealing with a lot.

Yup, same with autosomal 676. This is the second delay, the kit shows received by lab 05/09/2016.

Still waiting for my son's FF batch #674 pushed to 06/29/2016 - 07/13/2016 this is a retest his original test was in 2005 and they needed more dna.
also fyi
I had my mother's dna retested for a FF her original was in 2008 luckily they did not need additional dna since she has since passed away and I received her FF batch # 674

I also had my Aunt's FF completed and the dna was obtained after she passed away at the funeral home.
