Sorry Michanecash, I know they are running behind because of being short staffed, I also have family in Houston that had flood damage, so I understand how it affected the whole area.
Be patient. Most of the time they are early.

I didn't mean to be negative towards family tree. I know its a process you cant really rush and on top of being hit by a hurricane its surprising that they are working as fast as they are. My first test came back in 11 days. Way before the expected date. I'v just waited 32 years for this result. They also don't want to talk to me until the test comes back, so very anxious.

Batch 766

This is a FF test on a kit previously submitted for Y-DNA only.
Can't remember if this is the 3rd delay or the 4th -- just know the target keeps moving. Makes me wonder if they really can do additional testing after samples have been in storage for a while.

Family Finder Batch # 766
Ordered 07/09/2017
Batched 07/10/2017
Pending, Expected 10/02/2017 - 10/16/2017
Results for your Family Finder test have been delayed. We have updated your predicted completion date, and action by you is not usually required. Note that predicted dates are an estimate and subject to lab volume and quality control.
