    • More matches, this time dated Oct 9. They were not there yesterday, so they seem to be posting them a couple days behind. I got 1, my son got 2 & my nephew got 4.

      • Nordic matches

        My father received 1 Norwegian match. He had 1 Norwegian grandmother. My mother received 1 Norwegian match (something very unusual for her) plus 2 Swedes, 2 Finns and 2 southern U.S. colonials. I share the southern colonial matches with my mother. My mother's grandmother immigrated from Sweden in the 1800s.

        All of the Nordic matches are citizens of Norway, Sweden or Finland. As far as I can tell, there isn't a Canadian or American among the Nordic-related matches -- and that usually is the case.

        All dated October 9.

          • New matches not showing

            Yesterday my match totals went up, but FTDNA hasn't made any of the new matches accessible, either on the chromosome browser (new matches since last login) or the match list (sorting by date). Usually the lag is very short, but this time I think someone just forgot to finish the upload procedure.

            • I very rarely look at the total, but did so a couple of days ago. After reading your comment I have just checked again and believe I may also have a few new matches missing.

                • Since 9/01/2014 I've gotten 53 new matches and my brother has gotten 54. I haven't checked yet to see how many of those matches we have in common. Most of those matches are out a ways, and it will be some time before I really get around to looking at them.

                  • I now have an even 500 FF matches. But the latest batch don't give any information such as surname lists. I haven't done any "in common with" look ups yet.

                      • Latest Round of Matches: Clustering Continues

                        I share 3 southern U.S. colonial descendant matches + 1 Swedish match with my mother and I share 1 French-Canadian match with my father.

                        My mother received 1 extra Swedish match (very much related to her Finnish matches) + 1 definite Finnish match.
                        My father and I both received 1 extra mystery match, somehow connected to a cluster of British North America colonial matches. He also received an extra mystery match who has no common matches with any of his other cousins so far.

                        My mother's large clusters of DNA cousins up to this point: Swedes and Finns, New Englander descendants, U.S. southern colonial descendants.

                        My father's large clusters: French people (mainly French-Canadians and Acadian descendants) and Norwegians (mainly citizens of Norway).

                          Today I see that my total FF matches have been downgraded to a total of 499. I don't know which one they subtracted though.

                          • To anybody who suddenly gets a slightly different number of matches

                            They means that one person, who was a match to you in Family Finder, decided to remove all their speculative matches****. That is on the following screen they had marked No at the Speculative level
                            Possibly they wanted to cut tenfold the number of matches they have. In my opinion, that was a bad choice, but it is their DNA...

                            **** Most likely it was one of your speculative matches (so you were her or his speculative match too). If they were matching you at any other level, you would have most likely noticed their absence.

                              As dna said, some of your matches may have changed their settings, and they are off your list now. It's also possible that you have some new matches that obscure the actual number of changes. I could tell that I had lost four matches by comparing a recent list.

                              • I lost one too because of the settings. The only reason I knew he existed was because I downloaded my chromosome browser matches to Genome Mate and he appeared there, but not on my FF list. I think FTDNA has since plugged the hole in that workaround.

                                I find it disappointing that people are choosing these settings and wonder if it is partially through lack of understanding. One of my sons has a solid dozen 5th cousins that were easily traced to the same set of ancestors. Who knows how many others are erased because people erroneously think those distant matches are worthless?

                                My own known missing match is a 2-4th cousin and I know how we are related. I know this because he also admins another 2-4th who temporarily poofed from my FF list while the admin was playing with the settings. We had already corresponded and confirmed that relation. This admin is testing different branches of his family for genealogy purposes so his settings decision is a mystery. It doesn't seem very productive for his project if he doesn't want to see 2-4th cousin matches! I'm not sure he understands what he did and he may be sitting there wondering if he is adopted .
