  • Mine look just fine. I only see them on the chromosome browser. That is where I usually see them when they first come in. Later they appear on the matches page. I have played with the info I see, and have identified one of the many new matches as a relatively close cousin.

      Same here. I have old matches showing up as new matches

      • It looks like they have re-set the database so all the match dates are thrown out AGAIN

            • ...but dates are not all fixed yet.

              • For what it's worth, my matches:

                FF Matches downloaded two weeks ago: 2355
                FF Matches (Advanced Matching, today): 2381
                FF Matches (Regular match page, today): 2521

                The Advanced Matches increase is far more typical of what I expect. I haven't had time to analyze the difference between the latter two above.

                • I was wrong. I'm not sure which ones, but I lost some, and gained some, for a net increase of 6 (from 74 to 80). All the ones I gained are quite distant - longest segment less than 10cm.

                    Is this from your own kit or another kit that you manage? I've reported this to IT so they can check into it -- just need to confirm which kit.

                    Thanks,
                    Elise

                      • What's going on?

                        All kinds of old matches indicating they are new matches?

                        • My grandmother's Population Finder results posted today - expected test results aren't due until 5 Dec. So very happy. Hopefully this means her FF matches will be coming through soon. The crazy thing is that I still haven't received the results for another kit I'm managing, which was batched 2 months before this kit was

                          • Woo hoo!!! 3 new matches today. So went from 74 (last week) to 83 (today). Now, I think I lost some, but am not sure which ones, so it is a net increase of 9.


                            EDIT- The 3 new matches for today show up in the chromosome browser, but not the match list page yet (in case anyone else wants to look for new ones).

                            • I have 5 new matches according to chromosome browser, but I cannot see them in my actual matches yet. I still have all those "new" matches with old dates from the other day. I'm still not sure what to think of them. And I can't imagine that we all had matches who all of the sudden decided not to be marked private.

                              I sure wish FTDNA would explain what happened in the past week with Family Finder. They do after all have a NEWS section on our home page, and a RELEASE NOTES section. One would think there would be an explanation there.

                              • During the last week, I have also had many “new” matches that had older match dates. I wrote to customer service about this and I received this reply from the help desk: “We have recently refined our matching algorithm and you may have received new matches. The Match Date listed will be the date their test was completed, rather than the day the refinement was completed.”
