You know I will be at that conference and wonder what your issues with
privacy have to do
with FTDNA. FTDNA already gives the individual the right to divulge or not
divulge their privacy with their
test kit permission slip ?
None of the my men's names in our three projects have been divulged by
FTDNA, or me, unless the written authorization to
FTDNA ,or they have checked the box, to divulge their identity, or the
individual has written to me via email and given me permission to divulge
their identity when a close match has occurred.
Just how many FTDNA surname administrators do you represent anyway ? Let
them speak here for themselves.

Subject: [DNA] Demonstration against the 1st International Conference by
On Saturday 30 October, 2004 a 1st International Conference on Genetic
Genealogy for Family Tree DNA Group Administrators will be hosted by FTDNA.
The event will be at the Sheraton North Houston Hotel located at 15700 John
F. Kennedy Blvd in Houston, TX.
An organized 'Demonstration For The Right To Have Privacy In DNA Testing'
will take place at the same Sheraton North Houston Hotel.
The theme of the demonstration will be to bring to the attention that the
issue of privacy for an individual is not maintained by the surname project
administrators affiliated with FTDNA nor by the company FTDNA.
Shortly before the date of Saturday 30 October, 2004 various media around
Houston will be notified for the purpose of getting the message out about
individuals not having privacy through the DNA testing firm FTDNA.
Further details will be posted to the list and the DNA list on Genforum as
to the particulars for the Demonstration against the 1st International
Conference by FTDNA.
