    They have said in the past they have a backup generator that powers the entire building in the event of a power outage.

      I just got an email notification that my Y-37 results are ready... 19 days after they were already posted.

        I've gotten a bunch of mtDNA and Y dna match mails yesterday, circa 3 weeks after I noticed the matches myself

        Is this a manual process ? I hope not....

            For one thing, Y-DNA (and mtDNA) tests take longer to process than autosomal tests, as they are more complex tests.
            For another, there can be delays in processing tests, for various reasons; among these are:
            • Insufficient sample
            • Sample that does not pass quality control, and needs to start process over
            • Lab delay (due to equipment failure, personnel shortage, large quantity due to holiday sales, etc.)
            FTDNA has also suffered from poor communication with customers. Perhaps with the new owner (myDNA) some of these issues may improve.

            You can check the "After I return the kit, how long will results take?" page in the FTDNA Learning Center to see if there are delays for any type of test. Currently that page shows that for Y-DNA (excluding Big Y), results are taking 7-9 weeks. In your case, that could be between 1 Feb. and 15 Feb. 2021. The date a sample is batched does not necessarily mean that the lab has started processing the test on that day, although it should be started then or shortly afterward. The same page in the Learning Center shows that Y-DNA tests (except for Big Y) usually take 3 to 6 weeks.

            You may want to view the FTDNA Webinar "The Ideal Life of a Family Tree DNA Kit," from 2015. The part where a kit reaches the lab starts at 20:21.

            Some questions about the test process are answered on the Learning Center page "FTDNA Test Process."
            This is somewhat helpful. But I’m still waiting for my Y-DNA. #1162 was batched Jan 20 and still says it should be ready by the end of March. According to the Learning Center the Y-DNA delay is now down to 6-8 weeks which would be mid-March.

              it was ready April 5. Didn’t see a notification. Now I’m trying to figure out what the results mean...
