    Richard Rauch of Texas got his Batch 146 Y-results at midnight on Thursday (on Wednesday night, that is).

    Anything can happen, I guess.

    • I wonder if I let FTDNA know tomorrow is my birthday they might slip me my cousin's(?) batch 148 results VERY early.

          c'mon 147
          Mine is in July.

          I don't want to wait that long.

          I'm already tired of waiting.

              What batch were you in?

              Let us know what you find out about J1a. Since I ordered only the Y-DNA 37 test, I have focused only on Y-DNA and know very little about the mtDNA haplogroups.

                  That was sort of a loaded question because I did my mtDNA swap using one of those National Geographic "Genographic" kits. I always go through National Geographic rather than FTDNA because the kits are less expensive and include a DVD and literature that the FTDNA kits do not contain.

                  Both National Geographic and FTDNA use the same laboratory, but National Geographic does not provide the information of which batch number of which the kit is analyzed. I too, have always tested myself and other cousins using Y-DNA analysis, but I sort of figured that I might as well find out what is going on on mom's ancestry so this is my very first mtDNA analysis and let me be the first to say that I am mito-stupid!

                  Allegedly, the mtDNA results go back in time much further than Y-DNA...like 40,000 years or something...before Asians and Africans migrated to Europe and the British Isles, so to learn that Haplogroup J1a first appeared 6,500 years ago in the mountain regions of present-day Germany with ancient origins of the middle-east sort of kind of gave me the heebie-jeebies!

                  All of my tracable roots bot paternally and maternally immigrated to the American colonies before the Revolutionary War and all of them were either English, Scottish, Irish, German or Dutch. Well...that is about it...time for my Saturday night beer!

                  • ...one additional item!

                    I did send in a 12 to 37-marker upgrade on the Y-DNA sample that I obtained from one of my paternal cousins the same week I sent in that mtDNA sample of myself and my cousin's batch number is 147 so it is possible that the Batch 147 results are starting to surface as my mtDNA results might be from that batch. We will never know!

                    My cousin's Batch 147 Y-DNA results are due on 19 MAY 06...

                    Now for that beer...

                      Thanks for the answer. Once I get my Y-DNA 37 results, I will probably sign on to the Genographic Project, as well.

                      I agree with you and Homer about beer.

                      • Homer Simpson

                        Is there any truth to the rumor Homer Simpson's Y12-DNA is being tested in batch 147?

                        Comment


                        • Yes, the rumor is true; Homer Simpson has a sample in Batch 147. His results are just about to be released and, according to the rumor, he is living proof that Neanderthal did indeed leave a genetic signature in modern Homo-Sapien DNA. The exact sequence is B-E-E-R Hmmm.... you know, that does explain a few things, doesn't it!?

                          Want to hear something even spookier? The movie "The Da Vinci Code" is due to be released on May 19 Now where have I heard that date before? The connections here run deeper than any of us could have possibly imagined...

                          Batch 147's D-Day draws nearer and nearer!

                          • Now all we need is a DNA test to prove, once and for all, that Darth Vader truly is Luke's father!

                            My birthday is in August also.... No Y-DNA results as a birthday present for me either, thank you!

                              It's true!!!!

                              Never disclose your birthday wish if you want it to come true.

                              • if you wanted your results early...you should have used the Force!

                                I'm sure many of you have seen this (what i consider) entertainment page.

                                Two weeks till the estimated results day!. We must be moving along at 5 minutes per hour!..this is taking quite a while!. Maybe a little more strong coffee will help.
