OK you say you know he signed the release form and you mailed it in with
the kit. The next thing to check is to see if you have the correct
button checked in his "set up preferences" tab/section of his account.
You need to have the button checked to allow comparisons to the entire
FTDNA database AND you need to check the block to allow display of 12
marker matches. Check the "set up preferences". Experiment with the
various buttons checked and unchecked. If you still can't see any random
matches for 12 markers, call and ask them to check
your account. Maybe they got the release form and through clerical
oversight never entered that fact into your account.
