  • Y-DNA 12 Timeframe

    Does it REALLY take 6 weeks for a Y12 test to process? If so, dows it take longer that that for a Y12 to 37 or Y12 to 67 refinement?

    I'm still trying to get a handle on all of this. I know it took about 6 weeks for AncestryDNA to process my autosomal and start providing results. I, for some reason, thought a Y12 would be much faster.

    Six weeks sounds about right. However, each panel comes in when it is ready.

      What do you mean by "when it's ready"? When the lab gets around to it? When the cultures mature (LOL)?

      It just seems like an autosomal test would be far more complex and time consuming. Admittedly I don't have that kind of insight, hence why I asked the question.

        Michael,

        Most FTDNA tests get a 6-8 week estimate. This allows for delays due to volume, re-tests in the case of failures, etc. Also, the same machines run the Y12 test that run higher level Y-DNA tests and upgrades. So scheduling the different tests on the machines is also a factor.

        For Y-DNA, when the process is running smoothly, with normal order volume, and tests come back with clear results on the first try, then customers get results much earlier than the original estimate

            Thanks guys. I didn't mean to sound impatient or anything. In my mind it seemed like the Y12 would take far less time to run than an autosomal. Based on all that has been shared, however, the projection makes sense.

              My brother's 12 marker only took 10 days. Now my husband's 12 marker has been in the lab since May 15, 2013.

                Thanks! Here's hoping.

                Mine says the lab received it 5/30 and in progress 5/31.

                  No need to get in a hurry....As soon as you get the Y12 results you will want to up grade to 67 anyway Ha

                      Funny... and shows good sense...I went through 4 steps to get to the 111 ...but for the most part the 67 is all you will need as far as the Y markers go. Have fun.

                        Thanks! I bought thr Y12 because of an ad I saw for the FTDNA promotion. It was after I ordered the 12 that I really started looking into the testing and what it meant. I knew immediately that the 12 wouldn't cut it for what I wanted.

                        My Y67 revision and FMS should go in the next batch. I have to say I'm pretty excited to start looking at the results and see where they lead.

                          My Y12 came 2 weeks after the noticed of receipt. A week later came 27. then 37. 2 weeks later 67.

                          My results came real fast
