        I actually got a cousin (same surname) interested in upgrading his results to 37-markers today...enough so, that HE is going to pay for it!

        Since I administer that FTDNA surname project, FTDNA sent me a "thank you" note as he purchased it through my little website! Awwww....shucks!

          I think Stevo should get his results immediately.
          I'm still trying to figure out how I can get genealogy and DNA into my middle school earth science classes next year.
          I know I sort of stopped everybody in my tracks when I announced to one of my classes that Oetzi (Iceman), was a cousin.
          I mean he is.
          I absolutely insist that Stevo get his results tonight.

          Thanks, Steve. I appreciate the sentiments.

          I sure hope I get them soon.

              It was great, thanks.

              You're a heckuva nice guy, O'Connor. That comes across in your posts.

              I'm glad you started this chat thread. The name is catchy, too.

                Stevo,

                Buck up, lil' camper...it will happen...eventually and you will get your results. "We're all right behind you", said the Second Platoon to the First at Normandy Beach...hehehe!

                I have always wanted to do this:



                Does that icon NOT totally rock or what?!

                  Thanks, brother. I appreciate the encouragement.

                  I do wonder why I haven't heard anything yet.

                  But tomorrow's the day.

                    You should have seen me the time my uncle's 37-marker upgrade was three weeks late! All of the other reindeer from that batch were out playing their reindeer games with their results whilst thee remained a sad panda wondering what went wrong...

                    Three weeks passed and I got my results...eh, sometimes it happens! Out of all the sheep stampeding across the field, I just had to be that sacrificial lamb who would get his hoof caught in the single gopher hole at the back of the batch!

                    I know it is diff, but it will happen...

                      sitiv1 cousin to chimp and Iceman and banana

                      I guess if I'm going to claim Oetzi as a cousin, I have to claim that chimp they sequenced too.

                      Of course, so does everyone else.

                      On the GENEALOGY-L list I saw that everybody was pointing out that not only do we share most of our DNA with the chimp, we share half of our DNA with the banana he is eating.

                      Isn't this genetic genealogy stuff fun!

                      I have to remember I'm related to a banana the next time I start to take myself seriously.

                      I demand that Stevo get his results right now!

                        Thanks Steve and Lost-Sheep.

                        I like this thread, but I hope we don't let it kill the good ol' Batch 147 thread before it has even reached 500 posts.

                        I don't much like the idea of waiting past my target results date. I've been waiting a long time already.

                          So you have a test in Batch 147, Francesco?

                          Deep clade R1b maybe?

                          No results yet?
                          Not at all, I know all (almost) I need to know about my Y-hg and subclade.
                          I'm waiting for my mtDNA results (batch 149) which are due in June.
                          In the meantime I pass my unproductive time in the law firm in which I'm having a stage bothering you all guys

                            I must be genetically related to the Banana.
                            I've been told by some women that I do have a peel.

                            Good Luck today Stevo

                              No chimps or what they eat came up in my matches

                              Where is O'Connor this morning?

                              Now that I am a new Batch 147 alum and have found out I am his long-lost cousin, he's not here?

                                I was looking under rocks for my results.

                                Hopefully Monday...that is my target date.


                                So with your Family arriving home you will be extra joyed


                                conngrats again Comrad.


                                66 markers?..wow...that will give folk 7 free markers.

                                I have my 38-59 makers all written out on a sheet of paper waiting for me to add my values. i will go now and see if I can get the 6 new numbers to add to my sheet.

                                I have all my markers written out on paper so I can quickly compare numbers at an internet site without going back to my home-page all the time.

                                I have my free framable certificates which FTDNA has sent me for my Y and Mt readings. I'm sure they still do that for customers ....So you will have something official looking to frame.

                                If/when you join the Genographic program you will see on your Genographic homepage where you can print off a DNA Certificate. you can add any name. I printed one out for my Father. He was impressed with todays technology.
