I've always considered the Daniel DNA site one of the best out there and greatly
appreciate the information being available. I think making sure it remains up to date is
really important. Personally I like the results organized by family and then families
grouped by haplogroup. I don't know how the data is stored, but if it is in a
reportable database then couldn't we sort however we wanted to?
Thanks for all you've done over the years on the project; as you know, the results of
our test solved our brick wall!

This really gets back to the privacy issue. There are several folks who
have opted to not share their DNA results even with folks that they have
a DNA match with (!) and others who only want their information shared
with those with whom they have a significant match and the same surname.
I have had numerous requests from folks wanting contact information for
other participants in situations were they have only had 11/12 marker
matches and other matches which FTDNA does not consider significant
enough to be a match which indicates a close relationship. I cannot
share contact information in this manner, but I always forward these
requests for contact on to the person whose contact information is being
requested so that they can make contact, if they desire to do so. I have
never heard back from anyone in these situations, so do not know what
the outcome has been.
I could generate pages that show results grouped by haplogroups,minus
any information that could violate one's privacy, and the results of
those who don't wish their information shared, but question the value of
this as FTDNA notifies all parties involved if they have a significant
match, providing they have not elected to keep their results private.
Folks with what FTDNA considers significant matches can therefore easily
share their haplogroup information, so what would the value be in such a
presentation of data? We currently have 185 participants, so this will
take some effort, and the effort will grow as our project grows. I'd
appreciate the group's thoughts on this.

As a Daniel descendant and a yDNA project manager, would you please
consider grouping the project participants by haplogroup, even is they
are not being grouped by earliest known ancestor. That would go a long
way to helping project participant do comparison of the various results.
