    Current Y-DNA batch# ?
    by kRt
    What Y-DNA batch numbers have been recently completed? Which batches are 'in progress' with associated start dates? It would be nice to see some kind of progress log. I have mine in batch 721 that wasn't yet completed.

    Please post your batch if you are waiting for results, and also (if you can drag yourself away from your results for a moment!) update to let us know when your test was completed and which batch. Currently waiting for Batch 919 here.
