Nothing new there.
When can I get the detailed info? I’d like to add mine to the Conklin-DNA Project. It’s a stand alone system, so we can detremine which branch we come fom.

We’ve looked into it and it sounds like the your test is in progress. We appreciate your patience!

I currently have my ancestor DNA by using the Nat Geo Human Genome Project. Is there a way for me to post that information to the Ancestry.comDNA area of the site?

I activated my kit on 6th July 2012 and posted it back that same day with recorded delivery. I was informed by the Postal Service that my kit was delivered on 13th July 2012.
I found on this website that the wait would be 6-8 weeks. It’s now 10th September 2012 and I haven’t received my results yet, however, I expect it any day now.

Is there any way I can find out the status of my sample? The reason I am asking is that I’ve heard stories of samples being lost and I have had no news from AncestryDNA confirming receipt of my sample and what stage of the process my sample is in.

Cheers,

One eager little cookie!

Being ineligible for the “direct male descendant” Y-DNA testing due to the fact I descend through my mother, I was hoping to finally break down a brick wall that has existed over 15 years of research.

As for the ethnicity results, there was no surprise. Based upon 6 generations of documented research, and having knowledge of ancient and world history including the migratory and trade paths of past civilizations, I was pretty certain of my ethnicity.

My main interest in the test was in the member connection which I hoped would lead me to researchers of my ancestral line. My brick wall is that I cannot document a connection for my 2nd great grandfather to the many lines living in his same area having the same surname. By locating one or more cousins in one of these other lines, I hoped to determine which line to concentrate my further research upon. As it turns out, after approximately twenty matches of 3rd-6th cousin at 95%-98% accuracy, I find not one connection within 6 generations. That is disappointing.

I am certainly a novice when it comes to DNA and am at a great disadvantage when discussing the topic. I have tried to read related articles to give me a basic understanding. I also realize that my results have no guarantee and that as more people participate, better results will be forthcoming. For now, however, it is back to square one.

My husband did one in National Geo DNA and it took over four months, they misplaced the original kit and We had to do it again. I would like to have my brother do a DNA test and get further results. How would I pay for his DNA test. He is not computer savvy, backward, slightly autistic, but love him a lot.

What will happen when I am no longer around, or able to correct people who are using my information wrongly? Ancestry doesn’t seem to have any system of checks and balances and so there is a proliferation of incorrect information spreading through the whole site.
How can your DNA system work properly when it is predicated on an incorrect data base? I have done genetic testing with 23andme and would like to use your test in future but am concerned at all the mistakes in your system. Please help by doing something to overcome this problem!

She received her email a couple of weeks back and has ordered the kit, but I’m still waiting. I understand they are sending the order information out in batches. Is there any way to find out where you are on the list?

Thanks-Reba
