    I have contacted FTDNA about this new partnership and below I have abstracted some comments from them.
    I hope they can convince Richard Warren's descendant to get more testing, or they're going to have to hand out a lot of badges to all the M269s

    Got accepted, got both my national and California state membership numbers. Had to get those via emails and by phone as apparently the Post Office wouldn't deliver my hard copies to me. Odd one there, but the paperwork and waiting are over.

    Good luck on yours!

    For right now, FTDNA will require a 67 STR marker match to give out the Mayflower Badges. Last I heard, they haven't decided how close the STR match must be, but they were looking between a GD of 2-4 at 67. This should weed out many (but not all) non-matches.

    I have been badgering them a bit about SNP matching for the Y-DNA and hopefully that is the way they would go sometime in the future, but they/we need to get the Mayflower community to better understand SNP testing (especially NGS/WGS testing) and its capabilities/limitations.

    Whoah. I just noticed they changed Richard Warren from M269 to E-M35! Some new testing must have come through. Time to change my sig line
