    I run the Cullen Genealogy Homepage also and have plenty of work to do there, including a page soon for the DNA aspect of things. It is fascinating. Limited right now in what it can tell us - but give it time! I see plenty of potential in it and we're lucky to be part of it right now. Got our feet in the water when the technology's still young.
    I agree.

    I look forward to the day when they can give us info on more than just two lines.

      You're taking us too seriously.

      I'm enjoying myself, and I think the others are too.

      And I'm old enough to know how to wait for things.

      Mostly I'm just kidding around and reading these threads to learn about DNA testing.

      Peace!

And I apoligize to Denning for trying to help by giving ballpark figures, even though I wouldn't exactly call it nuts to look for a rough guide as to what's going on. The "nuts" stuff would stop if the basic information was simply made available.
          jt its okay i was worried you all would have a nerous breakdown lol
          btw my dennings have tons of longford cavan cullens in chelsea ma

            Timing

            Jim, You really are a dear to be here and squelsh our anxieties. And I probably post most often when I'm bored. But here is a question for you.

            If 'some' first 12 marker results came in for batch 144 on 4/12, and batches are done once a week, wouldn't it make sense that 'some' results for batch 145 would be coming in now? Of course, I don't think the 37-59 results would be that quick, which is the only tests our SPRINGER project has in the pot right now (watching those bubbles LOL!), but we have 3 12s coming up in 146 and 147 that are driving me crazy.

              Hi Jim! No offense meant, and none taken I don't think these folks are having nervous breakdowns, just seems that way. Normal people with normal questions Admin is a tough job. You see where I'm coming from though? Maybe an update to the FAQ on the personal page is due - giving the kind of info I've been talking about. Maybe a document in the Batch Calendar FAQ? I'd even be willing to help with that. Most folks here have plunked down a considerable bag of coins for their tests and have questions that are, in my opinion, quite understandable - and easily answered. You have my personal email if something can be worked out.

              For melissa

              That's getting into areas that I don't completely understand myself, and I can't locate the basic dates for Batch 145 or I could provide some help. Timing is very much batch dependent and so varies widely, but your figuring does sound reasonable. These things can have dates that are plus or minus half a month!

                  better updating

                  While I would prefer that ftdna spent its time finishing my pending tests... I think they could easily inform people in greater detail what is going on with their tests.
                  I doubt, however, if it would reduce the number of questions they have to field. I have found ftdna to be very responsive to emails; I've heard rumors of some other labs being faster (2 weeks for 43 markers), but this other lab has not replied to 2 email requests for information.
                  Maybe the other lab is faster because they don't answer emails
                  And from my y12 results, maybe the other lab isn't really faster

                    Yeah. I may be impatient for my results, but I am more concerned about accuracy.

                    I feel pretty secure with FTDNA.

                    An accurate result is well worth the wait.

                      Accuracy is more important

                      While I had a 8 generations ago connection to make, it would have been a shame to see it fall apart because the test was messed up. It would have thrown doubt on a huge paper trail that many people have spend time, love, and money on. I might not have ever been retested and learned the truth.
                      As it is, whoo hoo, a connection back in the revolutionary war, and hints of ancestors back in Italy, Albania, Anatolia, Iraq, and Africa!
                      It was well worth a few more days of clicking on my account 10 times a day.
                      I'm actually even a little more patient waiting for my mtdna results, but I do wonder about that unexpected census result on my direct maternal line that I found a few days ago...

                        Sounds like a success story.

                        I hope I have my own success story to report soon.

                        C'mon Batch 147!

                          I wasn't really exited. I have to admit I faked it.

                          C'mon 147..

                            I really am excited, but I know I've got to wait.

                            C'mon 147!

                                And here's the 90'th post!!

                                I've been thinking ahead too. I know I'll do the deep clade test - I'm actually surprised that isn't more popular than it is... probably because genealogists are investing in DNA for those connections they haven't been able to prove any other way. Markers make sense there. That's the reason I started with a 25-marker Y-DNA test.

                                I'm really impressed with how the deep clade test is able to place you on the human family tree. Very interesting, so that would be my next move. Later more markers if necessary. The way things are going, it probably will be necessary!
