Nothing since 1/17 either. I only got my own results on 12/20/11 myself. Since then I got 12 new ones on 12/30 and 26 on 1/17, so it does not appear that they update weekly.

Two new matches for my mother tonight. One of those also matches me, but both are very distant. My cousin's account also got a new match.

It appears that new matches are posted about every 10 days???

FINALLY!

Tonight I finally received my first new matches for 2012. Two.....and they are both 5th-remote with no surname list or Gedcom....sigh. However, at least I have some activity happening in the new year. Total count now: 56. Closest match to date, a predicted 3rd cousin.

At least I didn't get skunked for the month of January!

Well, this is fun! My wife and I both got several new matches today. What's interesting is that one of them matches both of us. Same guy. I just checked in Chromosome Browser and it ***appears*** that we share one segment of 3.64cM and 500 SNPs. Start and end points *appear* to be identical.

I know that the numbers are rounded off, and I know that this segment is small enough that there is a very real possibility that it is an IBS rather than an IBD segment.

But please don't ruin our fun! You can't stop us from calling each other 'cuz' here around the house!!

I have 15 pages of matches = about 150 matches to start off with!
But none closer then a suggested 3rd cousin, and the rest more distant.
I figured I would have some distant matches considering my family has lived in Virginia and Kentucky since the 1700's - 1800's and have many descendants in those states today.
But I certainly was not expecting to have around 150 matches to start off with!

I just looked, of my 150 matches, about 75 have failed to mention any surnames what so ever. 50% of my matches with no surnames to compare to, sad!

3 new matches for me (up to 148), after a dry spell of about a month. One has nice gedcoms for maternal and paternal lines. The other 2 have not listed surnames ond one of those is predicted to be a 3rd- 5th cousin. Have written to all 3 to see if we can figure out how we connect.
