Hi Vince and Al and Didier and all,
Perhaps the greatest benefits from the Genographic Project are from those who copied their results to FTDNA and then upgraded.

Just think how many more might copy their results if Genographic would encourage them to do so or even provide more of a hint that it's possible than the "Learn More" link.
