Today's the day!

If any of you are toying with the idea of ordering an upgrade test on your sample stored at FTDNA today is the day to do it to save a whole additional week before you get your results.    The reason for this is that FTDNA prepares and ships 'batches' of orders to the lab once per week, on Wednesday, sometime around 5:00 p.m. Mountain Time.

Open your Family Tree DNA personal page, click on the 'Order Tests & Upgrades' tab and select from the choices offered.    Everyone should try to get to at least 37 markers to get the most information for the least cost.    67 markers is good if you can afford it because it may help not only you but those others in your 'family' to try to distinguish between different family lines.

Another reminder.    Each of you from time to time should check to see that all your results have been uploaded to ySearch or mitosearch to give you the best chance to find or be found by related persons.    It doesn't happen automatically but it's very easy to do.    Simply click on your 'Matches' tab on your FTDNA personal page.    If you see a darkened line that says 'Click here to upload' it means that all your markers have not been uploaded.    So click on it and follow the instructions.    It's really very easy to stay current.

If you need any help with any of this, I'm here to help so let me know by clicking here.
