Well things are not working well for my Shetland Project so far. This morning I received notification that an Anderson had joined. I checked his paternal and maternal ancestry - all Ireland. I have asked FTDNA to set things up so that someone cannot just plunk themselves into my Project without having the word "Shetland" or "Shetland Islands" in the paternal or maternal origin boxes. I figured something like this would happen, but perhaps FTDNA is leaving it to individuals to chose, which can be disasterous for geographical projects.
