Some of you new to the FamilyTreeDNA genealogy website and all the opportunities their website offers to participants. In this blog, I want to briefly discuss the frequent question regarding Join A Project. You can join as many projects as you wish. Some belong to only one, while others have joined many projects.
Why would anyone like to belong to a number of projects? Well, it all depends on what you find from your test results. For example, there are several participants in our project who have either a lot of Stewart’s or a lot of McGregor’s whose DNA closely matches their own. When such results occur, it may be very beneficial to the member to join the surname project that seems prominent.
Others join specific projects that pertain to their SNP test results. There is another blog pertaining to SNP testing.
