This Administrator's Guide is a link to all the information that
we make available to Project Administrators. Please spend some
time getting familiar with the information.
Whenever you see our friendly Project Administrator,
he is a link back to this page.
Your Guide to administering your project on a Worldfamilies.net website.
The Project Administrator is often the one "pulling the load" for a project.
While this is exciting and fun, it can also be overwhelming at first, and time consuming even for a veteran administrator. Worldfamilies.net offers you as much or as little help as you need.
First, an explanation of the policies of Worldfamilies.net:
We provide this site as a service to you, the Surname DNA Project and to the whole Genetic Genealogy community. We expect it to be used only to support the project and any group(s) that are engaged in supporting the project. You may list books or other articles for sale that relate directly to this Surname Project and solicit donations to support this Surname Project. No other commercial activity is allowed without prior written permission. We ask that you be responsible and honest in all your postings and that you respect the expectations of privacy of your project members, or specifically obtain their okay to divulge their personal information. As a reference, FTDNA lists kit number, last name and marker results in their public site. We consider it okay to post that information without approval. World Families Network has a business arrangement with Family Tree DNA and we request that you respect both WFN and FTDNA in whatever you post. It is perfectly ok to post results of men tested at other testing companies. We ask that you not place links to other testing companies. Please let us know if you reach the point where you will no longer be involved, so we can find a replacement.
We reserve the right to edit offending material and/or to suspend or terminate your use of this site for failing to honor these expectations.
We hope that leading your surname dna project will be personally rewarding for you and that it will further research and cooperation within your surname families. And – we hope that all of the participants in your project make new friends and learn more about their ancestry.
