    If I sign the Release Form, will only my e-mail address be given to others, or also my full name?

    Neither if you chose to be private.

      Zowie,

      Your name and email address will be available to your matches (but nothing else -- they won't see your postal address or phone number). However, you can always change your account settings, and anonymize your name (first initial, last name, or even Anonymous if you wish).

      Signing the release is the only way that you'll be able to see your matches and vice versa in the FTDNA database, so unless you're testing just for the benefit of knowing your own results without matching against the database, you'll definitely want to sign the release.

      Elise

        The people listed on your matches will be able to see the name and e-mail address shown in the contact information on your myFTDNA website. The name is listed there is up to you.
