You may make your project private by removing it from the Projects Index and by not allowing others to join the project without a Join Request.

To remove your project from the projects index and require a Join Request:

  1. Sign in to your GAP account by entering your Project Administrator username and password.
  2. On the menu bar, click Project Administration > Project Profile. The Project Profile page is displayed.
  3. Clear (deselect) the Allow Order without join request check box.
  4. Clear (deselect) the Show project in Surname Project list check box.
  5. In the upper-left corner of the page, click the Save Project Profile button to save your changes.

Note: Most private settings are not the best option for wide interest surname, lineage, and geographic group projects.
