Re: The National Genographic Project

From FamlyTreeDNA;

"Being a current Family Tree DNA customer, you will be given the opportunity to join the Genographic Project without having to order a kit and perform a new test. You will be asked to agree to the Project's consent terms, and contribute with a nominal fee of $15 per test. Proceeds from this fee will be directed to the Legacy Project which will support local education and cultural preservation efforts to benefit the participating indigenous populations

By following the next steps you will be able to upload your 12-marker results and/or your mtDNA to the Genographic Project and keep track of the progress of this fascinating project."
Hello All,

As I read the above message, since I'm already tested by FamilyTreeDNA (Y-DNA25+mtDNAPlus) to become involved in the Genographic Project I only need to agree to the consent form & submit a fee of $15.00 per test.

The results from my previous testing uploaded to the Project will include ONLY the 12 Marker portion of my 25 marker Y-DNA test. It doesn't say what portion of the mtDNA will be included, as a matter of fact, other information states ONLY ONE result will be uploaded.

Am I reading the FamilyTreeDNA and the Genographic Project merger process correctly?

Thanks for your interpetation,
Art Thomas
