    My test kit just went to the lab last week. Could it be part of 147, and how does one find out?

      Go to your Personal-Page.

      Click on the *new* tab that says "Pending lab Results"

      It should list the Batch#/approx completion date/test

          My impression in reading what was on my personal page is that one gets the first twelve markers back, followed by the next thirteen markers, before the entire 37-marker result is posted.

          Is that correct?

          How long does it usually take before one sees the first twelve markers?

          Seeing those would certainly help relieve the pain of waiting.

          I scraped the crud out of my cheek for two solid minutes and more on each swab to give them good samples. I would have cut out a piece of flesh if they had asked for it.

              So, in your experience, does one get the results from the first twelve markers in about a month, followed by the rest two to three weeks later?

              Is that a fair estimate, or is it anybody's guess?

              Sorry for being impatient, but I am.

                  Cautious answers, Jim.

                  Hmmm . . . you are a wise man!

                  Frustrating, but wise!

                    Batch 147- DNA Test Progress

                    Hi Folks-

                    I am part of Batch 147 as well. Here is the current progress for that batch:

                    DNA Test Progress

                    Kit Received
                    04/04/2006

                    Batch 147 created
                    04/05/2006

                    DNA Isolation began
                    04/08/2006

                    DNA at Sequencing facility


                    Quality Control began


                    *Target Results Date



                    The above are ‘targets’ dates provided used by the lab. Actual dates may vary due to the number of kits in your batch, as well as the need to re-run the sample.

                    If you have ordered an extended Y-DNA test you’ll most likely receive the first 12 markers back followed in a few days by the next set of 13 markers. Quality Control is very strict about 2 sets of eyes confirming every score. This takes a little longer, but it also dramatically reduces the chance that an incorrect score is reported!

                    If more than a week went by from the targeted date without your results being posted, it means that most probably we did not get a result on the first pass during the sequencing process. From our lab's experience this happens in about 10 - 15% of the times.

                    -------
                    However, I think results may vary depending on what kind of test you order. mtDNA takes longer (5 weeks) than some of the other ytDNA tests (which take about 4 weeks).

                    Cheers!

                      Will these tests reveal racial percentages?

                      Hi, also wondering if anyone knows if these tests will reveal percentages of your racial makeup? I am curious about some possible Native American and African ancestry that I might have.

                      Cheers.

                        I don't think so. There is another company that does that sort of thing. Someone here will tell you who they are (I've forgotten).

                          ancestry and schedules

                          If you look at some of the earlier threads about batches, you can see that ftdna is quite conservative in their estimates about when results will come in. y12 tests recently came in 2 weeks early in batch 143, for instance, and I've seen a lot of mtdna results that appear to be a week early. I'll let you know when my y12 come in (batch 144). I also have a y12-y25 upgrade in with you folks.
                          Sometimes things go wrong in the processing and they have to start over again, and that can lead to long waits. I guess it's better to have them get it right than to have them report garbage.
                          As you can see, I too am impatiently waiting for results, and digging for any clues that might suggest that I'll hear back before 4/28, which is my scheduled date
                          Each of these tests will give you a guess at the nationality of only 1 of your ancestors, male for ydna tests and female for mtdna tests. Of course you have a lot more than 2 ancestors. You won't see anything from your mother's father or your father's mother, for instance. A quick web search should give you one of the companies that do the other kind of testing, the testing on autosomal chromosomes.
                          Many people that I have read about complain that the results about nationality mixtures are very vague. I think it may be difficult to figure out what 8% East Asian means, especially when a score below a certain level means that you don't have any ancestors from there. I don't know, I haven't had one I figure we're all African anyway if you go back far enough...

                            Thanks, Steve. Your post was helpful.

                            It is hard to wait, though, isn't it?

                              Just to add to your impatience...
                              I just got my y-12 results back sometime last night.
                              They were due 4/28, they arrived 4/12.
                              Family Tree seems to be on a good roll right now.

                              My results confirmed a paper trail back to the 1600's, so we're pretty excited.
