Why can't I see any results for the project? The project is an autosomal DNA project and FTDNA has not enabled viewing of the autosomal DNA results of members of the project. However, one can, as a member of the project, from one's own home page, select an option to compare one's own autosomal DNA results to autosomal DNA results of members of the Settlers project This can also be done as to Y- and Mt-DNA results, though the purpose of the project is to be able to compare autosomal DNA results
Administrators of the project, can also compare members' autosomal DNA results to one another, in a manner that more handily provides a matrix of comparisons to matches within the group, than members can do on their own. As primary administrator, I will gladly do this for you, upon request. Results from those within the group who have stated they wish to remain anonymous, will not be included in the comparisons.
There is a Yahoo group associated to the project What is that? The Yahooo group is a private group, that only members of the FTDNA group who have submitted autosomal DNA test data can join The purpose of the group is to be able to compare autosomal DNA and Family tree data, for those members who wish to do so. Members can request an invitation to the Yahoo group, when they have joined the FTDNA group, with autosomal DNA results
Can I join the group if I have done a Y- or Mt-DNA, but not an autosomal DNA test? Yes
Can I join the Yahoo group, if I have done a Y- or Mt-DNA but not an autosomal DNA test? No
Can results I have submitted remain anonymous, within the group if I join? Yes
