    That's quite a feat, especially 10 generations which, taking a generation as 30 years, is often only available to those of "noble" birth or whose family played a significant role in the history of a region.

    Anxiously waiting for batch 354!!

    So sounds like further delay. I am very curious. I am trying to discover who my maternal BIOLOGICAL grandmother is. My grandfather (known to me as my uncle) was in Vaudville (Blacksheep of family) and who my grandmother is was a deep dark secret in our Babto-Methodist Southern family. My mom was raised by her biological uncle and wife who gave her lots of love and stability. But I wonder who her mom is and why she was given away. I hope this test CONFIRMS the dad she was told she had and WHO her biological mom was. I know everything about my dad and have both my parents known sides traced back 6-10 generations back. Hopefully I get results and discover this deep dark secret in my lifetime.

    FF Delays

    Well I got an answer.

    My results were originally "expected" on May 17 because they had a leftover vial in storage. Since it wasn't enough for the FF test, they sent me some new vials. I knew all this.

    They are "having trouble" updating my expected date.

    My DNA has been extracted but has not been run yet. We're looking at another six weeks.

    I'm assuming the further delay is because the FF test is SOOOO popular that thousands upon thousands of (potentially matching) people have signed up. Here's hoping. I really would like to find out who my bio father is before I die.

    Odd. I mailed mine on May 12 and my due date is still May 17. I emailed them on Sunday and asked what the current expected date is since May 17 was clearly wrong even back on May 16.

    Isn't it odd how FTDNA had severe FGS delays, and 23andme had sample mix-ups, and DNA Tribes has delays? All seem to have had some sort of lab problem. I wonder if they all use the same lab, or if it's just a fluke. It's probably just a fluke.
    I don't think they use the same lab as my DNA Tribes samples went to Utah and my FTDNA stuff went to Texas.

    BTW - I originally ordered the DNA Tribes 21 marker test but before I sent it in they made the 27 marker test available. I emailed them that I wanted the 27 marker test and they just charged me the difference (rather than an upgrade fee) since I hadn't sent in my samples yet. I mailed my samples on May 12 and got the email from them on May 27. No delays apparently.

    I emailed again yesterday, around 6pm, asking about it. I was sent a reply around 7 or 8 am, but only just checked my email maybe a half hour ago. Lab processing is still under way and my results are expected "early this coming week and have been marked for priority processing as soon as your lab work becomes available." And I was offered a choice of "an additional free $24.99 Add-On (Native American Panel, Central Asian Panel, African Panel, or Extended Match Results) or future update to your analysis.This can be redeemed at any time of your choice by contacting" ....
    Isn't that nice? I wonder if I should opt for the Central Asian panel, or a future update. I already get the Native American and extended panels. The Central Asian panel info is just an organized list of specific populations that are in the extended, but it would save time and make it easier to read (won't have to search for each one).

    Isn't it odd how FTDNA had severe FGS delays, and 23andme had sample mix-ups, and DNA Tribes has delays? All seem to have had some sort of lab problem. I wonder if they all use the same lab, or if it's just a fluke. It's probably just a fluke.

    DNA Tribes results

    My family lineas are all European from England, Ireland and Denmark/Sweden. I dont think they are all that great on mixed ancestry.
    Did you at least get high scores from your known places? I'm adopted but I know my birthmom. Birthdad information is what I'm trying to find out. Birthmom's family is Lithuanian-Jewish. No real info on her dad's family beyond they were from Minsk. I've got 20 exact mtDNA FGS matches that are right on the money for a Litvak maternal line. But my Ashkenazi score is pretty low. My scores for the British Isles are zero. I was told my birthfather was "of Irish extraction" but who knows how accurate that is. I'm hoping FF will shed some light.

    It is FAR too early to be disappointed in the Family Finder.

    The days are very young and the database will grow.

    Even if there are a couple of thousand tested for FF, it will be a very good tool.

    I already have 2 confirmed cousins out of the 30 that show up.

    It would be very nice if the bulk of them would add surnames or places.

    I hope you get more matches in the future, when more people take the test.
