    My FF match count got a bit of a bump after the 23andMe "import" campaign, but nothing since.

    I feel that FF may have peaked.

    Well I hope in the next two days some comes up i bet it will no reason for them to wait just 30 days. I think I have gotten matches on the weekend.

    I was averaging about 6 matches a month up to the August batch. I have access to a friends FF account and she averages about 15 matches a month. Neither of us have recieved anything since the August batch.

    FTDNA seems to be adding new matches at the end of the month so maybe in a couple of days I get around 20 a month here.

    Tapped out?

    Hope not! Just bought 3 more tests today. Hoping my mother and father-in-law will come onboard and test. My kids and husband have tested so if they do test will give us a good idea of what relatives belong to what side. I love we can do that with his family as my paternal side is unknown and leaves a lot of questions unanswered !

    Probably not. One step at a time.

    First tested myself with NG kit in 2011, but just this August tested the full mtDNA, now is my husband for Y67 from Y12 and my father for full mtDNA, then will be my father for Y67, a little bit later my father for family finder, then my husband for full mtDNA, then my husband for family finder - it seems it will take a year or two to do all tests.... my cousin (our mothers are sisters) is also interested - still some time for him to do Ydna, he also wants to check his father's mtDNA.......

    Wishing you luck and some patience....

    My paternal grandmother's kit was batched on 09/12 and her population finder came online today. In the past the full results have come out within about 3 or 4 days of the population finder being uploaded on my other 3 kits, so I would guess they next waive of results will post by the middle of this coming week.

    I suspect the delay is mostly technical. I have gotten dozens of matches at Ancestry and about a dozen at 23andMe over the past month so I know people are still testing. I generally get a couple a month here at FTDNA.

    No matches in over 30 days. Market saturation?

    Has autosomal dna testing peaked? Perhaps new sales and marketing strategies are needed.
