I called ancestry about my test. It was my second try test that went beyond the 2 week processing time. And it didn't process, so now I have to do a third test.
If it goes beyond 2 weeks, it's usually an indication that there's a problem. It takes about 2 weeks for the process to develop. Then they try again. If it doesn't work by the second or third set of two weeks, you'll get a notice. If you don't, call them and ask what's up.
