    As info, I went ahead and ordered FMS for my mother on 7/12. The order was assigned batch 631 expected 8/26/2015 - 09/09/2015 for all parts of the test.

    I'll be curious if a delay is coming.

    A delay did come:

    "Results for your mtDNA testing have been delayed. We have updated your predicted completion date, and action by you is not usually required. Note that predicted dates are an estimate and subject to lab volume and quality control."

    Now 9/2/2015 - 9/16/2015.

    I've been getting curious about the results, but hopefully the latest estimate will prove to be correct.

    So it seems there is a backlog in general and not just with Batch 627.

    Thanks.

    This is for Full Sequence: HVR1/HVR2 and Region Coding. No reason for delay provided.

    Anyone else in Batch 627 with delay?

    Thanks.

    I used to believe that FMS required a total rerun. But it could be that FTDNA had to do FMS earlier (for example to exclude cross-contamination with a lab person).

    Thanks everyone.

    I went ahead and ordered (7/12/2015). Sample is on file, so I'm curious to see when the test gets batch. Sounds like I'll be lucky if I see the results before mid-September.

    As of last week it looks like average Full Sequence mtDNA testing was at about 6 to 7 weeks.

    How is FTDNA doing with new mtDNA testing?

    I'm seeing a need now to get a FMS test for my mother. Has FTDNA been improving on its recent backlog and is the mtDNA testing coming through currently without problems?

    Appreciate any input.
