Some time ago it was announced that DNA Heritage was folding up its operations.
As part of this process, they had made an agreement with FT DNA to take over

Heritage being integrated with the FT DNA data.

How is this conversion done? I've gotten no notice as project admin
that this could be done. Do you mean they gain entry into the FTDNA
database, so they show up on our GAP?
