Sometimes, yes, not always!
My Grandson's application for Y-DNA and mtDNA was mailed to SMGF
following his 2006 Christmas visit here with us - his YDNA results
arrived in October?, 2007 and I deduced his mtDNA shortly thereafter -
say 10 months +/-total elapsed time for both tests. My Grandson has
Asian maternal heritage.
My Y-DNA results took over 18 months - my brother's DNA application was
sent in about Sept, 2004 (a couple of months after mine) - his Y-DNA
*still* has not been posted but both of our mtDNA results came out
together not long ago. We have Norwegian maternal ancestry. Plain
vanilla English ancestry on the paternal line.
It appears SMGF does a lot of selective choosing of who gets processed
quickly and who doesn't.
