Interesting thought, but isn't 23andME partnering with ancestry.com?

If people who have been tested at 23andMe agree with my suggestion, I hope they will go to the comment and reply. Linda Avey (cofounder of 23andMe) has answered one of my posts on the Haplogroup Q Community, so I know she reads at least some of the posts. Perhaps your comments could influence her to contact Bennett Greenspan and they could work something out. I also suggested on DNA Forum that the deCODEme folks do the same thing (if there is a forum on deCODEme's site).

FTDNA has mtDNA and Y DNA haplogroup projects that could increase 23andMe customers’ understanding of their deep ancestry. Once the link was clicked for a Y haplogroup, FTDNA could also have another link on the haplogroup page to check for a surname project (if the 23andMe customer wanted to check a surname). Surely 23andMe could convince FTDNA that the clicks would be worth something.
