Hi Scott.  Go into your Group Admin page and click on "Project Profile Page" and add the surnames. 

I see that you have either figured this out on your own - or have used examples of variations that are already in your project.

Good Luck with your research!

Hi,

I am the administrator for the Sheets DNA Project.  I emailed Terry a few weeks ago, but have not heard back yet.  My question is, since my email address has changed, how do I change it at the bottom of my project pages?   Is that something I can do?  Or does WFN need to change it?

Thanks.
Paul

Ho Paul.  Sorry.  I am really behind.

Sign in as the Sheets administrator at WorldFamilies, go to your Sheets project pages and click on "Configure Site"  Then, you'll see a number of options - including changing your email address.

You'll also want to change it at your FTDNA GAP page

I've noticed on the Y-results page for Surname Projects that there seems to be DNA results for men who lived in the 1800s.  Is this a best guess based on known descendants?

In almost all cases, the person named in a DNA surname project is the Most Distant Known Ancestor (MDKA). This would be the most likely reason why people who are obviously deceased are listed.
