Becoming a Project Administrator

When no one from a family steps forward to administer a project, WFN is happy to step in to provide administration and a project Website.  We also provide free websites to any FTDNA Project.  Through a business arrangement with FTDNA, there is absolutely no cost to the admin or the project members. 

Because we believe that the most successful projects are those with an active family member taking the lead, we are always looking for someone who is willing to take on the administration for his/her family surname.   We can help you a little, a lot, or not at all.

 
                                          
If the project is an existing WFN Project that is being administered by WFN because there is no Administrator from the family.
  • We will be happy to set you up as Project Administrator
  • You must be willing to begin with sending welcomes, emails, and recruit members. 
  • You can take over the posting of results and pedigrees to the website as you feel ready.
