    I am excited though and looking forward to answering some lingering questions and playing with the data - can't wait for some third party tools.

    I think the 43 populations and the 9 regions are a great way of analysing your admitixure - why are some people complaing about that?

    On another site one girl filled-up 8 of those regions - the most was 24% the least was 4%. The only one she did not was Southern Africa.
    Can you share what other site that is? I've been looking for people who have posted their results but, so far, only two persons I've seen. One here and the other one, Auntsha, who was the first to share hers. By the way, I've just received an email informing me that my sample is at 60% of the process.

      Exactly! This is an admixture test - what do they expect - an answer like Northern Ireland possibly Donegal. They are giving us 9 broad regions with 43 populations (that do not necessarily correspond to national boarders) to help us further are study. Jeez! They are not trying to help you match-up with your 4th cousin in Cornwall or tell you that your are 62% Swedish.

        Here it is - it is City Data Forum in the Genealogy Thread post #38 and below. http://www.city-data.com/forum/genea...na-test-4.html

        You can probably PM her and ask her questions if she does not want to offer info on that site. She seems pretty open though.

          Personally I would much rather have fairly broad but accurate predictions, rather than specific but inaccurate ones. Just look at AncestryDNA: they probably have the most specific admixture categories, which has led to confusion as people wonder where their hidden Scandinavian ancestors are, Germans are reported as being from the British Isles, French people are told their ancestors were from Italy or Spain, etc... more specific isn't always better, at least until the science catches up, if it ever does.

          I'm still sitting at 40%. Lots of people seem to be having their status updated today, so I'm still hoping mine will move...

            Yep! The girl I referenced above did both the Geno and Ancestry - but Ancestry gave her a wopping 16% unknown.

                sorry but if you look at the population reference of population finder :
                http://www.familytreedna.com/faq/ans...spx?id=22#1039
                you have more than 60 ref population, so why shout everywhere are test is revolutionary to have less precision than familly tree dna ??? I don't understand sorry

                  I think FTDNA is in a state of chaos with regard to Geno 2.0.

                  1) No list of y-DNA SNP's tested in NatGeo/FTDNA FAQ. (we only know this now because of Cece- Thank you)
                  2) No updated y-DNA tree.
                  3) No published scientific paper
                  4) No sasquatch DNA included in test ;') LOL

                  Did the marketing guy go on vacation?

                    4. Very funny! I saw that one last night on TV! Who knows maybe the "squatch" DNA goes under the Neanderthals! I personally hope they find some ancient alien DNA. LOL

                      I think Geno has all those (Did not they use FTDNA's reference populations?) they just subsumed them under thier own reference names.

                      • Just checked again still at 60% - but I read this:

                        This process typically takes around six to ten days. The next stage in your analysis will be a quality control step, after which your results will be uploaded to the website for you to see.

                        They are taking two to three times longer than that

                        Must of found something special like Alien DNA -

                          yeah I think what will be good of the test will not be the crap results (oooh my journey) with 2 3 arrow but the dna file in raw format with all the snps.
                          seriously they said they could go to the "country" level and now only 40 populations out of hundreds in the world ??
                          if you're happy to be pigeons rrouu rouu then

                            Hmmmm! I never heard them say - 'go to the "country" level.'

                            Anyway, for the admixture I never expected much more than a broad designation of certain regions. Plus, I am thrilled to get my mtDNA and YDNA which I have yet to find out and the RAW data to research myself. It will be well worth it to me - pigeon or not.

                              Mine took 18 days to go from 60% to 80%.

                              • It seems to me this test takes longer for men than for women. Some people (women) got their results within 24 days, after the lab received their kit. For others, it takes a long time. Although, to be fair, their website did say it would take from 6 to 8 weeks before results became available.
