    I don't seem to have the new ones as matches to the kits I manage at Ancestry, so I assume mine are new batches and not transfers. One seems to be pretty close with 4 IBD segments shared.

    • One member of my project, who is not an immediate family member, usually gets at least 20 to 30 new matches when a new batch comes in. He only received 2 today, and 2 on the 23. If it's a whole new batch instead of transfers, he is getting an incredibly small number of new ones compared to what he usually gets.

      • New Matches

        I have two new matches, including a cousin whose kit was in batch 548.

        • Out of 4 family kits, only one of my relatives received new matches, and only 3 new matches.

          • I have two new matches: A person of Acadian ancestry shared with my dad and a person of southern U.S. colonial ancestry shared with my mom. Those were the only new matches my parents received.

            • It is now 20 days since the date of my last FF matches, the longest dry period in a while, IIRC, at least since Fall 2013.

                • I have one new FF match, dated Feb 3. Largest block is 10.69 cm, I think it was. As usual, I'm clueless as to how it connects to me. I now have 360 FF matches.

                    My mother received 2 Swedish-related matches. My father received 1 Norwegian match. I share 1 new Swedish match with my mother.

                    So far, my mother has received at total of 320 matches. My father, 118. I have received 260. My mother had 1 Swedish-born grandmother. Two of my dad's great-grandparents were born in southern Norway.

                      Quick question: when you say they have a Norwegian match and Swedish match, are they actually from those countries or do they trace back into them?

                      I'm curious to know because I have a slew who trace their ancestry into those places, but I also suspect that they also trace back into other geographies as well. All are Americans and none were born in another country.

                        I can tell you of my mothers 194 matches, 28 matches contain email addresses that are from Norway and Sweden (plus some from Finland Russian, Denmark, Czech Republic)

                        My mothers paternal grandfather was from Norway, her paternal grandmother from Sweden

                        • That's awesome.

                          I'm happy to hear that we are beginning to establish connections beyond our borders.

                          • My family gets a good number of Scandinavian matches both here and at 23andMe. I'm waiting for more Germans to test, however.

                              Of the recent matches, my mother has one definite match from Sweden. The other appears to be a North American with half-Swedish ancestry. My father's match is definitely Norwegian.

                              My mother (granddaughter of a Swedish immigrant) rarely receives Norwegian matches here or on 23 and Me. Her Nordic matches are either Swedish or Finnish (most are citizens of those two countries). Her grandmother came from an area of Sweden where Finns had settled. One of her matches (and mine) had a Swedish dad and a Finnish mom. Her Finnish matches include both Swedish and Finnish speakers who are citizens of modern Finland. On 23 and Me, as far as Nordic ancestry goes, my mom (and I) both have Scandinavian and Finnish ancestry.

                              My father (grandson of a daughter of Norwegian immigrants) receives no Finnish matches (I expected some Forest Finn influence but it's just not there for him). He results on 23 and Me indicate Scandinavian ancestry but no Finnish genetic influence. His matches are both Norwegian-Americans and citizens of Norway itself, more the latter I believe. He had received perhaps one match who was a citzen of Sweden. That match told me that she was born in a region that once belonged to Norway before the border was adjusted. My dad also receives a noticeable minority of Danish matches (citizens of Denmark) here and on 23 and Me. I was told that when Denmark ruled Norway, it was not uncommon for Dannish men (including Lutheran ministers) to settle in Norway and marry Norwegian women. Their descendants were thought of as Norwegians.

                              When I view my new Nordic area DNA cousins before I view my parents' cousins, I can pretty much tell right away which ones will appear on my dad's list or my mom's list -- depending on the matches ancestral names and locations.

                              I have long wondered too, as far as our Finnish matches go: I do not know what happened to the youngest sister of my mother's Swedish grandmother. She was in North America for a while, but might have back-migrated to Sweden-Finland again.

                              • I wouldn't be surprised if my U5b2b2 haplotype came from Sweden back in the Viking Age (900s AD). And my father once told me when I was little that that we are related to Norwegian royalty. Since that would probably not be the current Norwegian dynasty, which came from Denmark, that would have to be from Medieval times. Of course he could have been fibbing.
