New 23andMe matches in today!

There are new 23andMe matches in today (Dec 7, 2013).  So, if you have tested at 23andMe, check your account and see what you got! I love new "DNA relatives"!

23andme now calls "Relative Finder"  "DNA Relatives".  They still have not lifted the nasty 1000 cap, but since I send out sharing invites like a freak, I have well exceeded the cap.  I get so many new matches every week that most of the time I struggle to keep up with the invites, let alone adding all the matches to the spreadsheets, let alone working on the trees of all the matches!

Since they switched to the "new" layout at 23andme, I find it takes a very long time to enter people in the Family Inheritance Advanced boxes, as I am now sharing with 6955 people (all 14 kits on one account)

Lucky for me I have the best brother in the world, and he has made a fix for it for me :)

I have two relatives who have agreed to test that I haven't gotten kits out to yet (Ted and Julie, I havent forgotten about you.....)

I also plan to test all 6 of my children.
