View Full Version : FDTNA - New Member found

New Relative Found!

We found 1 new Y-DNA12 match(es)

Every three months or so I get the above message sent by FDTNA via email.

And every time the list is still the same - new member - zilch. Why does FDTNA lie? Is it incompetence or are they trying to extract more money?

For the record I am Z16532. I have five "relatives" - four at genetic distance of 7 and one (in Venezuela) at 3.

Of these only two are Z16532.

Frankly as far as I am concerned, I think the number of relatives is zero but maybe I am wrong.

Lets say that they are very optimistic :)

Possibly a coding issue, my guess is the threshold for those automated messages is set different than the threshold for matches displayed.

Someone said that the auto-emailer informs you any time a new match shows up even if they are anonymous and won't actual show in results or matching or anything that you can see. So sort of like a tease.
