  • How Many People actually get Family Finder Results in the 3-4 week time Frame given..

    My Dads DNA kit has been batched and given a 3-4 week time frame for results... When my own was done last May I was given 3-4 weeks first, then 1-2 weeks and it ended up being 8 weeks, but at the time and since then it seems a lot of peoples kits don't make it back in the 3-4 weeks time frame, just wondering has anyone gotten their Family Finder results back in the 3-4 week time frame..

        My wife's kit has been batched today. All I need now is a little patience. I know that it may take more time as I am sure there were a lot of orders during the sale.

            Louise the 3 to 4 week time frame is from once the lab receives the sample and logs it in.

            From the looks of my recent matches coming in, 1 today and 6 yesterday, they are cranking out the FF tests. The Y dna, that seems a whole another issue.

            I ordered two FF last year and both ran similar and here is that breakdown for one in July, about 2.5 weeks from received by lab to results.

              So they do come in in the 3-4 week time frame!!!

              Mine was batched on the 12th June last year and I didn't get the results until 7th August, nothing to report on it when I contacted the help desk which made me curious as to if anyone actually gets results in that time frame!

              My dads are batched now anyway, and I too noticed a good few new matches today that weren't there yesterday, hopefully all will go smoothly with the results!

                      Yes, I got my Family Finder results in about 4 weeks. I've also gotten an snp test done in just a couple of weeks. On the other hand, I've had to wait for a few months for y str tests.

                        Thats great to hear ekc123....

                        I do suspect there were a lot of more tests sold in the sales so I wonder how they will handle them all!!

                          I have 6 FF tests of my own completed so far and the longest took 5 weeks. All of the others were 3-4 weeks.

                            I'm liking the sounds of these responses!!

                            I've only ever done one test so only had that to compare it to and it was 8 weeks between batching and getting results, to know there is a glimer that I might get results in 4 weeks is good!!

                              My uncle's kit was received by FTDNA on 11 Dec., batched on 18 Dec., and his FF matches are showing as of 7 January (I checked and did not see them yesterday, though they show up this morning). That is less than 3 weeks since batching. He has 41 matches so far. His Y-67 expected completion is now at 3-5 weeks, in batch 601, so we'll see how those do. Fingers crossed it goes well.

                              I had another FF done recently: received 21 Oct. 2014, batched 22 Oct., expected 19 Nov., completed on 21 Nov. (4 weeks, 2 days).

                              I have another FF in process: mailed on 25 Dec., received 2 Jan. 2015, batched 7 Jan. (batch 604), but as of yesterday not shown as "received by lab." Expected completion is 3-4 weeks.

                              An upgrade to FMS for another relative (from her existing mtDNA+) was ordered on 8 Dec., batched on 11 Dec. (batch 600), expected 2 Feb. 2015, but COMPLETED 6 Jan., a total of just under 4 weeks. FMS matches showed up yesterday.

                              I would like to point out that the completed tests above have been processed: (1 FF) just before and (2 - 1 FF, 1 FMS) over the holiday period. I know many complaints have been made in the forums, for delays for all kinds of tests from FF to Big Y, and I believe those customers did have poor service.

                              But I want to be one voice who has, so far, not had excessive delays or complications in my 11 kits, and many tests done (FF, mtDNA+, FMS, Y-67, Y-111, SNP). Many times the folks who get good service don't mention it, so there may be a skewed perception by new customers reading the forums.

                              I kept track of all the kits I've ordered, and out of 8 FF done since late Oct. 2013, all but one were completed in 2 to 4 weeks from batching. The exception took 6 weeks, and that was over the holidays in 2013.
