    SNP retest ?

    I usually send an e mail to FtDNA for queries, but this seems to be getting more difficult.
    As I have tested positive for PF4363, and FtDNA is NOT updating me from u-152*, AND they are offering a PF4363 test for $39, should I pay the money to get the obvious accomplished ?

    FtDNA e mails seem lost in reams of FAQ, and " comments for problems only, no response will be made ".
    Thanks

    I don't understand your question. Are you saying that:
    - Your Geno 2.0 results include PF4363+
    - You transferred your Geno 2.0 results to your FTDNA account
    - Your FTDNA account now shows your PF4363+
    - Your FTDNA account still shows your official haplogroup as R-U152.

    That's normal. FTDNA only rarely updates its official haplotree.

    Does FTDNA show your PF4363+ status?

    The answer is 'no', do not re-test. FTDNA only changes their haplogroups every 4 or 5 years. If they changed it every time a new branch showed up, it would be a nightmare to manage.
