FamilyTree DNA Update April 28, 2020

Late last night followed up by a last check this morning, I did one final check on FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA). To my surprise, they had pending dates for Big Y-700 (July 6 – 20, 2020), Warrior Gene (June 8 – 22, 2020). For the Factoid Bundle, it was broken down into 21 separate tests. Each with a projected date of June 8 – 22, 2020. With that many DNA samples to test, I believe they will run out and have to send me new cheek swabs soon. That will add a week or so to those tests that need a new cheek swab.

Once I can get a list of the individual Factoid tests – see link below, I will include them. For now, they are broken down by which marker is tested. Here’s a quick rundown

The link includes which marker(s) are tested for each of the 12 Factoids. This includes the Warrior Gene which is tested separately from the Factoid Bundle. As I purchased it in addition to the 11 in the bundle, I will get results for it. I don’t drink alcohol so I won’t know if the results for it are valid. Some of the other results are for things I don’t eat or do which means I won’t know if those results are valid.

In the past, I would get some results faster than others. For example, the Y-67 test included several panels, around 5 if memory serves, some of the panels came in before lower panels. I expect it to be the case with the Factoid Bundle.
