I've read through many of the posts regarding the SMGF database. When I first investigated it, someone sent me two different links (other than the search function on their web site) to look through their data base. Unfortunately, now that the results are in (or do they just send you an invitation to buy a maternal test as well as soon as they receive your paternal test in?) I can't find that information anywhere to save my soul. There are few members with our surname in the SMGF data base (Hutchinson) and of the eight there, none of them have the right pedigree for my cousin's results.
How long have people been finding it takes to get results from the paternal DNA tests back from SMGF? Is using the last name in the search function enough, or do you have to find 7 markers that match your line before it will bring up your record? From the looks of it, as long as we put the last name in it appears to pull up everyone, whether any of their markers match or not.
Many thanks to anyone who can help me understand how to search the SMGF database productively.
