Project Admin Passed away

I recently ordered my test to join a project(Morton/Mourton/Nunn) and discovered the admin has passed away. It looks as though the project has several members and was hoping to join. What is likely to happen to this project?
See admins obit here:https://www.hkfuneralhome.com/en-mem...am-brec-morton

Thanks in advance for any info.

Does this project have Y-DNA results only, or also Family Finder results? Can you tell if any of the members are matches to you? If any do, you could then use their email address to contact them and let them know the project admin has passed away. Maybe you and/or one or two of the current members could take the project over.

Otherwise, if you can't contact the current members, contact FTDNA and explain the situation. Maybe they can contact the current members to see if one of them would take over and let you join.
