  • Has anyone received any new Family Finder matches since Jul 19?

    • I haven't had any new matches since July 19 and I can't view any of my matches' Gedcoms...wonder if something is wrong with my account.

      • I'm still at 139 matches, which is plenty for me to handle. I'll have to look at GEDCOMs, which I haven't lately. I just tweeked my GEDCOM a bit,adding to a line that went back to Finland in late 1500's > early Delaware (Swedish Colony).

        • Several of the kits that I manage are on the brink of being matched. They have had Population Finder results for several days; a bit longer than usual. I suspect that after the July 19 fiasco, Family Tree DNA may have modified their means of establishing & posting matches, at least on the IT side.

            I have been wondering if one of my kits out of batch 473 is going to have early results. Expected date is not until 12/09/2012 but its PF results came in earlier this week which I found kind of odd as earlier batches are still waiting on their FF results.

            • Do you mean September twelth? For those of us in the US that looks like December ninth.

              My brothers FF is in batch 471 and his PF has been in for a week plus now which means the analysis is done. I understand why they are being cautions with the matching given the recent problems but it sure would be nice to have access to the raw data file.

                • I've had no new FamilyFinder matches since July 19th for the three kits that I manage. We are still patiently waiting for the results of my father's full mitochondrial test as well.

                  FTDNA testing certainly has enriched my experience with genealogy. However, I have to admit, I expected to see more matches each month, especially now since dealing with not only my kit but those of my elderly parents. My mother is the one who has the most FF cousins, with her parents having colonial connections to New England and Virginia-Maryland.

                  Thank goodness for GEDmatch, ancestry.com and other sites to keep me occupied! I am also looking forward to the new version of PopulationFinder on this site, whenever that is eventually released.

                  • One match dated July 21st appeared on one of my kits today. It was not there yesterday.

                      It seems that the last few weeks new matches have been arriving more irregularly than before. I also haven't received any since 7/19.

                      • Two for my mom on the 18th, one for me and nothing since. With my brother in the system that will hopefully be changing soon.

                        • New matches coming in

                          Everyone keeps talking about matches coming, but I am not hearing much about how many of those are actually being confirmed. In my case 11 of 230.

                          • It'll probably be years if ever before I get a confirmed match. I'm managing my mother's account and there are no asian matches on her mother's side. On her father's side there is 97 but we don't know her father's surname let alone his genealogy so it's unlikely we'd confirm matches anytime soon. I did find some common ancestors between matches though.

                                FTDNA is having to re-run the database again due to some issues with power or something related to that. I also have kits with PF but not FF results. We'll just have to wait till the numbers finish crunching.
