  • DNA profiles after death

    Hi, I'm sorry if the answer is really obvious on the FTDNA site somewhere, but I have looked everywhere ... my father passed away recently and I am wondering what to do about his DNA profile (Y and FF). I have always administered it and any messages for him come to my email address but I am hoping there is some way that I can keep the account going but make it clear that the message would now be coming to me? I don't want to close his account completely but at the same time can't face receiving mail addressed to him and having to explain every time. TIA for any advice.

    You can add a statement in his account profile, to indicate you are managing the account and that your father has passed away. That is what I have done with those accounts that I manage when the person has died. You may also want to make sure the beneficiary information in his account has you as contact, or whoever else is appropriate.
