  • Bug: No haplogroup projects listed for project administrators

    https://www.familytreedna.com/projects.aspx is the default Projects link in GAP.

    However, as explained in the Family Tree DNA Learning Center article entitled What is a Haplogroup Project? on the page https://my.familytreedna.com/group-join.aspx there are additional listings for
    • Y-DNA HAPLOGROUP PROJECTS
    • mtDNA HAPLOGROUP PROJECTS
    that do not appear on the page https://www.familytreedna.com/projects.aspx.

    Also haplogroup projects cannot be found when using Project Search from https://www.familytreedna.com/projects.aspx, even when logged in GAP.

    I can see that the title of the page https://www.familytreedna.com/projects.aspx is Surname & Geographical Projects, but the text body does not mention haplogroup projects. And the sentence
    Below is an index of the 8,075 that are currently run through Family Tree DNA.
    should in my opinion at least be augmented by the wording
    The index does include haplogroup projects.
    Thank you!

    P.S. Since the search works differently on pages https://my.familytreedna.com/group-join.aspx and https://www.familytreedna.com/projects.aspx, I am not suggesting a simple URL substitution in GAP...

    As far as I knew, you could only search for Haplogroup projects from you personal home page, (in the manage/join projects section) when you have yDNA or mtDNA results.
    This is to ensure that you have your Haplogroup results before joining a Haplogroup project.

      Rivergirl is mostly correct

      Haplogroup projects are deliberately not listed on the public Projects page, to prevent people from purchasing a kit through a haplogroup project when they don't know their haplogroup yet.

      Haplogroup projects can be seen by logging into your myFTDNA account and going to the My Projects -> Join page.

      You don't need Y-DNA or mtDNA results to see haplogroup projects, though -- customers with just Family Finder results can see the haplogroup projects too, from within myFTDNA.
