The Public Participation Project was initially just a money-raiser for the
Genographic Legacy Fund (and other projects) . The Indigenous Project itself
was already fully funded. They later decided to ask some questions about
origins, so that they could use the database for migration studies. I have
not really followed the project in the last few years, so I don't know what
they are currently doing with it.
