  • 9 new for my maternal uncle. 3 new for me, including my paternal uncle's kit which came in early.

    • I have 38 matches now. Had 35 yesterday, but the dates are odd. One of them just appeared today and it said it is from June. Of course, none of them have trees or surnames or match any other matches

      • The entire database was reran so I would not surprised if a few previously missing ones (like this one dated June) show up now.

        • Well, FTDNA did it again: they lost (at least) one of my former matches! Are they trying to thwart me in finding out my ancestry? I just now happened to try to compare two matches on the chromosome browser; two old ones. And one is now missing. They matched on chromosome #9. The missing one had a surname of Bennett, and is no longer in my list of matches. And they still owe me two way overdue tests.

            • mkdexter - Thanks. The other thing (and I would have to go through and check all of them) is it seems someone is missing, but I am not positive.

              • My mother got 6
                I got 6
                My father got 2
                My cousin got 3

                There is some overlap, of course. One of my father's is a predicted 2nd cousin to him and a predicted 4th cousin to both me and my cousin. The name isn't familiar, but it is Italian.

                One person matches both my mother and myself at 3rd cousin level.

                One strange thing is a few cousins we've had for many months are showing up as new!

                • 107 new matches, but some old ones may have disappeared since I think that the total went up only about 70. I did get what probably is my least likely second cousin with 170.75 and 7.96 totals. 7.96 is the shortest longest block of any supposed second cousin in my list.

                  • It would be good if FT explained what they did. I had downloaded my FF list and my brother's on 8/7. Tonight, 2 people have been removed from my brother's list and the largest and total cM of 6 people have been changed. On my list, no removals but data changes in 5 people. The data changes resulted in the person's position in the main list being moved, had to hunt. Have not yet looked at the segments themselves to see if only length has changed or if segments have actually been added or removed. And my brother had 7 new matches, I had 5.

                      Carol Anne,

                      I have strange dates for some of my matches too. I have one NEW match who has a date of 7-6-11. I have some other ones that are dated more recent, and they have been my matches for longer than the new match date. Also, I was checking my new matches using the ICW tool, and it stopped working. Another thing I noticed is that the total cM on some of my matches has changed, some decreased a little bit, and a few increased. The longest block numbers appear to have remained the same.

                      I did get 5 new matches though!

                          I noticed some start, end, cMs & SNP differences, so downloaded all 188 matches' CB data again and compared to my previous spreadsheet entries. I am only partially through the project, but 7 matches on chromosome 9 changed quite a bit. I did not look at all the segments, just those over 5cMs. It looks like they have the numbers fouled up again

                          Anyone else seeing these problems?

                          • I suggest that FTDNA outsource their operation to Switzerland, where precision is a matter of national honor. Lackadaisical Texans just don't make it. And I don't care about the cost.

                            • I have a net gain of 15 matches; five disappeared, but 20 new ones showed up. I also noticed that that some of my matches got promoted in the rankings due to changes in shared cM and Longest Block. I'm assuming that FTDNA has changed their calculations and that hopefully, the changes are an improvement.

                              The match dates of the new matches vary widely, some going all the way back to the date of my initial results. Only four of them were dated 8/10.

                                It's possible that some numbers for chr9 were corrected in this update. I'll see if I can find the thread where people had reported problems previously.
