Not to mention the point when not delivering on promises crosses the line where consumer protection laws come into play, with all the civil and criminal ramifications.
    That's a complex area potentially covering several jurisdictions. I don't think in my case they promised any timeframe in my agreement when I was in the first batch of testers. I certainly wouldn't want to see them go out of business, as we did with Britain's DNA, which also gave me a lot for my money.

    I would actually be surprised if the people who uploaded through the FindMyPast promotion get a free ethnicity estimate. I'm not even talking about getting it on time, just ever. Of course, I would be very happy to be proven wrong. We'll just have to wait and see since we haven't passed November 1st yet. They seem to have a habit of brushing off past comments they've made without addressing them though. Even if they came through on that promise, it would restore a lot more trust in them.

    With these delays to produce a good product people are going to expect something top notch when it does arrive. Can Ldna deliver is the big question?
    I do not mind if it takes a bit longer time to be able to launch a better product, but I do mind having better communication from LDNA to their customer. Never promise a certain date if you know that you are not able to keep that promise. You risk getting people frustrated and you will eventually lose your goodwill and reputation.

    From past behaviour, LivingDNA can only be expected to deliver what it already is delivering.
    To think otherwise is to plan for disappointment.
    Kindly adjust your expectations accordingly.
    Expect nothing of these promises.
    If they happen, celebrate.

    Well about 3 weeks left, I really hope all this time generates a very solid result, as it’s taken longer than my ancestry report by far, it’ll be doubled if it actually comes in November.
    Final Ancestry Paper Trail Tally:
    25% Russian, 12.5% Ashkenazi Jewish, 12.5% Belarusian, 12.5% Lithuanian, 12.5% Ukrainian, 12.5% Italian, 6.25% Kazakh, ~ 6% Black, 0.78125% Uzbek

    I received an email from Living DNA on Oct 26th "Your BETA access to Family Networks is now live".

    I signed into my Living DNA account and went to Family Networks to see my matches annnnnnd (drum roll) I had exactly one match: my brother.

    Oh well, it is only the Beta version.

    Maybe I'll get my second match in 2019.

    I just got matches with my other kits, at least it is some progress.

    My only match is to my mum's kit. I don't match my dad who isn't in the family networks yet so it seems that other kits have to be in beta to match them. I'm not able to see the Tree View yet. It wouldn't show much anyway. However, what I find strange is that it says I share 100.08% DNA with my mum and 3477.76 cM. The cM number is normal but it should say that we share about 50%.

    My only match is to my brother, although his test hasn't been completed yet. It says that we share 80.65% (2802.46 cM).
