  • Batch 2? Transfer of Results

    I transferred my data to FTDNA through the 3rd party transfer process. It says that I am Batch 2. What does this mean?

        Orders placed at FTDNA get batched up for the lab on a weekly basis and get assigned a batch number.

        However, no lab testing is done for autosomal transfers. Your original company did the lab testing, and FTDNA will be re-processing those results from the raw data file that you uploaded.

        FTDNA's system still expects a batch number for every order, so all autosomal transfers are placed into Batch 2 rather than the current weekly batch number.

          I just added a Autosomal transfer to FTDNA and I was also placed in batch 2 with no expected result date

            I transferred my 23andMe data on 6/7 and emailed FTDNA a couple days later to ask about an ETA on results, and here's their response:

            Thank you for your email. It has been taking about four to six weeks to get all of the raw data uploaded and then to clear the quality control measures and finally run and compare against the database and upload results. You will receive an email notification when all of the results are uploaded. The lab and IT department have been working on stream lining this process, so it may be quicker than that.

              I transferred my data here a few months back. Ended up taking about 1-2 weeks, but I remember the original "expected" date was less optimistic at ~2 months. This was when they didn't have to deal with an influx of AncestryDNA data.

                As of this morning, the previously blank "expected" date for my results is 8/28/13, hardly the 4–6 weeks they quoted me in that email just a few days ago...but about what I expected given what I've been reading here for the past several months.

                Here's hoping they make that goal...

                  I have a transfer in this batch as well with no expected due date. I purchased the transfer on 6/14/2013.

                    Just got a expected date of 8/28/2013 for Autosomal DNA Transfer that was transfered on 6/7/2013.
                    Wow! So its going to take two times longer than what 23andme did to run the test?

                      It's your punishment for not buying the overpriced Family Finder test for $169 in the first place. (vs. $99 for 23andme or ancestryDNA)

                      Normally, FTDNA charges $99 to transfer the data. ( i.e. the same price as the full 23andme test.)

                      BTW, some people waited over 6 months to get their 23andme raw data transferred to FTDNA when it was first offered.

                        That must be it. 12 weeks seems a bit long for something that there not even sending to a lab.

                          CORRECTION: The overpriced FTDNA Family Finder test is $199!

                              Batch 2

                              I'm also in batch 2 and just noticed today that my expected results date is 8/28. Not quite as soon as I'd hoped but . . . oh well.
