    Is the match someone in the surname project? It sounded to me as though the match was someone who was in the database, but NOT inthe surname project, in which case, what good would contacting the Group Administrator do? Also, could georgemagnum change Public/Private setting to Public for his record, and would that allow the contact information?

Is there anyway FTDNA could contact this person on my behalf to share information either by their signing the release form or contacting me on a confidential basis. Also since I did sign the release form, would this person be notified of a "new" exact match and have the option of contacting me at my email address?
    Since the person that matched you did not sign a release form, I suggest you contact the Group Aministrator for your surname, who could help you with that information.
