About us

Please take a minute to read this. It’s about changes in the Cumberland Gap project and how, as one of the administrators, I’ll be communicating with you.  

1.  The Cumberland Gap projects, y-line and mtdna, are huge, over 8000 members in both the Yline and mtdna projects. That’s great, but it offers some unique challenges because of its size, not the least of which is that the administrators can't send group e-mails without our e-mail addresses being blacklisted as spammers.

2.    We have been trying to organize the Yline project in a more useful manner. Family Tree DNA does offer tools, but no bulk tools to move groups of people at once. We cannot currently group project members due to the size of the project. We are volunteers and we are doing the best we canJ
