Subject: Genographic Project guidance?
Date: Sat, 4 Jun 2005 19:17:12 -0400 (EDT)


All,
Consider a hypthetical question. Suppose someone named Blitzplotz is
a participant in the Genographic Project. As it happens, there is no
Blitzplotz surname project at FTDNA, nor even any project for a name
beginning with "Blitz". How sophisticated does this participant have
to be to discover that there is no "support group" waiting at FTNDA to
help him with genealogy if he should decide to upload his Genographic
results to the FTDNA customer database? Or suppose there were a project
for that surname, but it had only one member, and no web site, and the
project description were very unhelpful. Any of us would presumably
know how to find that out in advance, but would the Genographic guy
be guided to such information?

Those who have received their results already: did you get enough
information, just from the Project, to make an informed decision on
whether to join FTDNA or not?
