Oddly the C/C payments were processed within milliseconds.

Forums be great.... look.. OVER THERE see the emoicons aren't they cute :

I too have paid for multiple family member's testing and dis other companies in favour of this site. I'm thinking I will be withholding my postings / emails to thousands of family and friends who are considering testing their DNA. *nods*

I have a family member Family Finder and never rec. an e-mail telling me it was batched. It was batched yesterday 18 Jan 2017.

I have had this happen many times before.

Date for FF Batch 715 changed

I looked at awaiting results yesterday and had a date
FF Batch no. 715 expected date 02/08/2017 - 02/22/2017.

I know have Family Finder Batch 715 02/15/2017 - 03/01/2017.

I don't know why the change . I am glad it was posted.

FTDNA is my favorite DNA company even with all this.

I do have my DNA with 2 other companies and I got my results much faster. It takes more than that for me to like a company. My personal opinion I like the chromosome browser and the matching. I have talked with FTDNA on the phone and messaged Darren in the past and all have been extremely helpful.

I also like FTDNA though it took a month and a half after placing my order to have results, even with me sending the samples back the day that I got them. If I hadn't read the forums, I would have expected them sooner, but I kept delays in mind.

Doesn't bode well that others (yes plural) who I know are paper trail cousins are not showing up on mtdna test results.

Odd my biological/dopplar daughter in appearance to my mother and myself does not appear as a genetic relationship to various relatives yet do to me, my sister, my mother, my mother's cousin, my mother's cousin's son......all of us paid for full sequence mtdna testing.
Did all of these paper trail cousins do an mtdna test as well? I just got my results today so I'm trying to learn about mtdna.
