    The kit I had in batch 617 had results up when I checked about 0600 yesterday morning. 37 markers done
    The email did not come in until sometime late last evening, but by then I already had what I needed.

    Looks like I have one solid match at Y-DNA67 (R-M269)
    Genetic Distance = 7 with my same last surname. But he has NO
    GED file posted, but send him a message that we matched.

    Now to try to learn more about all this Y-DNA as I am still very new to it.


    I just got email today that I had new match from batch 617. It was for the match I saw on the June 6th results.

    Batch 617: FTDNA Moves the Goalposts Again

    Quelle surprise. That's two delays. Original sample batched 4/08/2015, original projected results date range: 6/03/2015-6/17/2015. Second delay range: 6/17/2015-7/01/2015.

    Today, on the first day of the second due date range, checked the kit and it's moved 7/01/2015 - 7/15/2015.

    FTDNA, you're just simply a terrible company. That's the only conclusion one can reach. You consistently set low standards and fail to meet them.

    Just about the only damned thing you have ever done on schedule was clear a debit card transaction when I ordered a test. Those, strangely enough, go right through, with no delay.

    Tomorrow's the Day. 10 weeks

    That's the first day of the delayed range on a Y-DNA kit I bought in March.

    I want my stuff.

    That is all.

    Just wanted to let everyone know that the Y67 test in Batch 613 came in on 6/12. That was 14 1/2 weeks from batch time. So, it came in according to posted guidelines.

    One piece of advise I would give is to make sure the person who is doing the test follows the instructions exactly and also doesn't leave the envelope in a hot car for several days before mailing it. I had one cousin do that. Fortunately, his Y test was fine and wasn't delayed for a 'bad' sample.

    Point taken. The last three months have been a complete Charlie Foxtrot as regards my interactions with FTDNA.

    The only thing keeping them afloat is that they're essentially still the only game in town.

    I'd much rather be going through my newly reported y-DNA matches than swearing profusely at FTDNA customer service.

    I don't want to have to be ugly with people on the phone or via email. I really don't. I've tried to swear off it and (mostly) take the high road, but I've reached the end of my forbearance.

    Usually FTDNA can conduct a number of tests with the same sample.

    How the hell does that happen?
