Group Contact Editing for Smith DNA Project

We really appreciate the people who have volunteered to be the group contact for a given set of peoplewho match into a grouping. If you are a group contact, you have the ability to edit the group description, put in a geoproject link (such as 7 Septs), a geoproject description and most wanted for the group. You can find this editing function if you are logged on to TNG from your profile link. Feel free to put in anything that discusses possible origins, is inclusive of all members in a matched grouping, includes sources (preferably links to sources), and any other information that will assist others in finding matches.

We have added a discussion blog post for each group so that either passersby can add comments or suggestions or we can put emails sent to us regarding your group in a common place. We’d really like you to check from time to time if anyone has added a comment you would like to reply to. The blog does not require that a person be logged on but all posts are held for moderation to weed out spam.

Also, you can send out bulk email to your group, which includes the emails that are known to be valid. This should be used sparingly but is there to help communicate with the others in the group, who can reply.

For the Smith Official DNA Project (All Locations) a minimum of 25, or better, 37 YDNA markers, is strongly recommended. Many times one can appear to match other kits but the match falls apart after 12 markers. We do not attempt to match kits into groups on less than 25 with the exception of a strong paper trail or known family kinship with another tester.
