    My father's kit is in batch 1164 and I just got email that the results have passed quality control, but they can't upload results to his account because of technical problems. I have heard that many people have got the same message.

    Waiting on a y37 in batch 1172. Been almost 2 months. Never had a y37 take that long before. They must really be behind.

    I got the notification for #1162 today - a week and a half later after the results were posted.

    My father's test was in batch #1164 and it completed on the same day. No notification either.

    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."

    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....

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

    Yesterday one of their employees told me she was without hour for 24 hours at her home. If the lab losses it will delay some testing. How much will depend on how long the power is off. I don't think they ever lost samples due to a power outages caused by hurricanes and flooding.

    So, mea culpa: I checked my earliest archived emails in different folders, and now see that over the years I have received notices for kits that had "new mtDNA relative" matches, "New Y-DNA Relative," and "new Big Y" matches. I also unearthed a notification for "New Big Y Results" for one kit in 2017, "New DNA Test Results Posted" which were Full Sequence results for two kits (in 2013), notifications for HVR1 and HVR2 Matches (for kits which had earlier completed Full Sequence results, not upgrades), and notifications for FGS Matches. In earlier years, there were even some emails for "New Family Finder Relative." And of course, emails notifying when myOrigins results have been updated.

    If I recall correctly (at least in somewhat recent memory), I have received some notifications about new matches AFTER THE FACT; in other words, the notification came some time after I noted that there was a new match. The bottom line is that FTDNA is probably still sending such notifications. Why hasn't DJ Brooks received any yet?

    One possibility for DJ Brooks is to check to make sure the email address that is shown in the account is correct. Perhaps there was a typo. If that is not the case, submit a Customer Support form and ask why notices are not being sent.
