  • Pending Matches

    While I have a couple matches,one of which is my niece, they say "pending". I am wondering, who confirms the matches? Is it the other individual or is it FTDNA? They've been like that since I got the results and I first checked them. Also if they don't upload a tree, how do I figure out how we are connected? Thank you for any help.

    In Family Finder, one can set Known Relationship.

    For Example FTDNA lists a Parent/Child relationship in the Relationship Range column as Parent/Child. If child sets known relationship to Father or Mother, on Parents match page it will display "pending" until Parent accepts assignment and chooses Son or Daughter.

    This assignment is only seen by you and the match who set it for your own personal reference. It is not displayed to others in your match list.
