    The $15.00 is to have your FTDNA results transferred into the Genographic Project so your data becomes part of the first phase of that specific project. If you want to participate in the second phase of the Genographic Project, GENO2.0, then you have to order a new kit directly from them, and you will then be able to upload those results for free into your FTDNA account. Currently, GENO2.0 costs $199.00 with free shipping in the U.S.

        80% Complete
        Stage 4
        Quality Control – know has a check mark
        Final Stage of Testing Is Underway
        Your DNA analysis has been completed and we are now performing an important quality control phase to assure all your results are correct. In this stage, a laboratory staff member reviews the data for accuracy and checks for potential issues with DNA quality. Any samples with potential problems are flagged and rerun through the entire process. The software-generated results are then combined to produce the finalized data. After this stage is complete you will automatically be taken to your results when they are ready.

          I spoke to Taylor a customer service rep at FTDNA just now.

          He told me that the National Geographic website is not ready yet
          and that it looks like Geno 2.0 results will not be released until early December.

          I hope the results will be available earlier than that.

            Thank you for letting us know . This may be why my kit is at a standstill. Unless it did not pass quality control .

            My kit is also showing

            You are currently participating. Thank you for contributing your result to this important global study. Click here to learn how to request removal of your result.

            Which it did show at one time and then diapered and know back again. So it does seem like they are working on what ever issues they have.

                Did you order the full Geno 2.0 test from National Geographic or was it the $15.00 conversion through Family Tree DNA? I'm just confused as to what to expect?

                  actually I ordered both lol
                  for $15 you can expect just very limited results as it only takes mrv1 from the mtdna test and 12 markers for the y chromosome and nothing from familly finder, whereas with the geno2 I expect a very accurate deep clade as well as more information about my mtdna results but of course nothing to search for members of my family (not the goal at all of the geno 2 test)

                    To clarify, when you pay the $15.00 and transfer your FTDNA results to NatGeo, you're paying for the opportunity to add your results to the first phase of the Genographic Project, so they can have additional information that they can use in the study of human migration. In other words, you're essentially making a $15.00 donation to scientific research. You're personally not going to find out anything new about your results from transferring them to Nat Geo.

                      I'm at 40% complete. My DNA has been isolated. When I checked earlier today, it was still at 0%. I came home and checked my e-mail, only to find that not only had they received my kit, I was up to 40%. Needless to say I'm pretty excited.

                      It took just a little over two weeks from the time I sent my kit in to get to this stage. I'm in Canada.

                          It probably has something to do with customs. Although I'm in Canada, I'm as far south in Canada as you can get, and actually right in the middle of the American Midwest, geographically speaking. It still takes longer for me to ship things from where I live to anywhere in the U.S. than it would if I lived up in Maine or something, because of customs.

                                I ordered my kit back on Sept 1. I received the kit in the 2nd or 3rd week of October, and mailed it back on or about 10/25. Hurricane Sandy hit on the east coast four days after that, I would suspect it would have gotten out in time.

                                It's now 3-1/2 weeks since I've mailed the kit. Being that several here have mentioned that their kits were received a few days after they were sent, I am not sure what to think. When I phone they tell me to keep waiting. But how long should the wait be before it's considered "excessive" ?
