How Many People actually get Family Finder Results in the 3-4 week time Frame given..

My Dads DNA kit has been batched and given a 3-4 week time frame for results... When my own was done last May I was given 3-4 weeks first, then 1-2 weeks and it ended up being 8 weeks, but at the time and since then it seems a lot of peoples kits don't make it back in the 3-4 weeks time frame, just wondering has anyone gotten their Family Finder results back in the 3-4 week time frame..

My wife's kit has been batched today. All I need now is a little patience. I know that it may take more time as I am sure there were a lot of orders during the sale.

Louise the 3 to 4 week time frame is from once the lab receives the sample and logs it in.

From the looks of my recent matches coming in, 1 today and 6 yesterday, they are cranking out the FF tests. The Y dna, that seems a whole another issue.

I ordered two FF last year and both ran similar and here is that breakdown for one in July, about 2.5 weeks from received by lab to results.
8/8/2014 Completed
7/24/2014 Batched
7/22/2014 Received By Lab
7/17/2014 Received
7/4/2014 Sent
7/3/2014 Ordered

So they do come in in the 3-4 week time frame!!!

Mine was batched on the 12th June last year and I didn't get the results until 7th August, nothing to report on it when I contacted the help desk which made me curious as to if anyone actually gets results in that time frame!

My dads are batched now anyway, and I too noticed a good few new matches today that weren't there yesterday, hopefully all will go smoothly with the results!
