Tweaks/sale/privacy settings

A few tweaks have been made to the Summary Project pages on the WorldFamiliesNetwork.

In doing so it was noticed that the default grid embedded on the result page direct from FamilyTreeDNA was not showing all of the project results.

For those of you ordering Y-DNA tests after about March, please review this post about the changes to the default privacy settings that impacts this display.

The tweaks:
  • formatting of some pedigrees that seem to have gone awol fixed
  • Skeleton pedigrees added for DAWE families in Lanreath, Cornwall and Snettisham, Norfolk 
With the FamilyTreeDNA sale on until the end of December, this is a great time to find representatives for new direct male line DAWE families to take at least Y-DNA37 (but preferably Y-DNA67) tests, and for anyone with a DAWE ancestor to try FamilyFinder.
Keep an eye on this spreadsheet
 for  coupon codes for additional $ off over and above the discounted prices.
New coupons are being issued weekly on Mondays.

Check out your MyGroups

Those of you belonging to the DAW(E) Surname dna project may have noticed there's a new facility  available on FamilyTree DNA when you log in - MyGroups.

Why not check out the activity feed for the group and contribute something about your DAW(E) ancestry and either what you are trying to prove from DNA, or have already proven?

Activity feed posts are private to members of the project only.

At the top of your FTDNA page you will see a globe, currently to the left of your name, upgrade message etc.
The little globe that may have a red circle with numbers in it - that's the number of unread posts since you last visited.
Clicking on Dawe in your project list will take you to the new project pages, which includes a link to the Activity Feed.
At the moment there are still daily coupon codes being posted for varying $$ off new orders.
The clutter of the $10 off ones has been reduced by moving those to the public News page, leaving  the more serious $$ off ones for members only.
