Bill / List

This could be interesting ...

The tests that use 'Chip' technologies usually produce a list of mtDNA mutations. So how well will
FTDNA do as compared to it own FGS testing ?

I can see some sort of disclaimer coming out to say the 'Chip' results should be taken with a 'pinch
of salt'.
Or will they keep re-testing until all the differences are resolved ?

Good times ahead ...

Hi John and all,

My order confirmation said I had an unused vial on hand. I had previously submitted three more for
some other test. So they can start processing my order immediately. Whoopee.

I think they are offering the beta tests for those who have taken the mtDNA FGS test - maybe some
other advanced tests.


And John before....
