Thanks for the additional information, Nancy.
I use Google Analytics on my personal web site, so I know how to install the
tracker code (the code needs to be inserted into each page you wish to track).
I simply didn't realize that FTDNA would allow us to put our own GA tracker code
on their web pages .
