I also uploaded my DNA to livingdna in August. I wasn't expecting matches before Q4 2018, as stated on their site, but I thought that some basic results, i.e. ethnicity (supposedly much better for UK testers) would be available sooner.

They only stopped accepting DNA uploads for their pure sample 4 grandparent in one area matches for Scotland/Ireland and other parts of the world study, on I think 1st October, so it is going to take them time to analyse all those samples and put together new ethnicity algorithms.

My four grandparents would not be very helpful to them. They were all born in the the same town, but the parents, grandparents of 2 of them came from far distant parts of England.

Mgeneas, I'm the same, and I often wonder how many times the four of them bumped into each other before they all became involved in the same family.  At one time my two great grandmothers live within 100 yards of each other. As far as I know they never met.

It could be because of the browser you are using as back in September Living DNA were having browser trouble and I had to change my browser to be able to see my results that I had previously been able to see no problem.


When I queried it with them this is the gist of what they said


Sorry to hear you have received the message error 100. An error has been identified in the browser you are currently using for Living DNA. Our technical team are currently investigating this. 

To get the best out of your Living DNA portal we advise you use either Google Chrome, Safari or Firefox as your browser. It looks as though you have not been using these browsers currently.



Is that (bit in bold) similar to the message you are getting ? What brrowser are you using ?

No, wasn't getting an error message at all, just being returned to the login page.

Seems to be working now, though, but still no DNA results.
