DNA project administration

From ISOGG Wiki

Suggested name change

It might be better to move the articles in this category to CAT:DNA project administration as it might get confused with a future category, CAT:Wiki project administration or other types of administration. Plus, you can't move a category page. You can redirect it, but it is not recommended to do so.

Thinking in broad terms of category structure and some articles might belong in multiple categories:


  • DNA Projects
  • DNA project administration (Would contain articles non specific to type of DNA, general administration)
Types of DNA projects
  • Y-DNA Surname project administration
  • mtDNA project administration
  • atDNA ....
  • Haplogroup ....
  • Geographical
  • SNP (is this the next frontier?)
Then another sub-cat could be
  • FTDNA DNA project administration
  • Tips for FTDNA project administrators
  • FTDNA administration with GAP
  • AncestryDNA project administration
  • Tips for FTDNA project administrators

PS, this template also handy for articles.

That seems like a very good idea. I don't think we will end up with SNP projects but we will probably see more Y-DNA subclade projects springing up. So few people use Ancestry for their projects that I'm not sure we would need separate categories for companies, but once the structure is in place it would be easy enough to create subcategories.

I've renamed the three affected pages and created the new category but I now don't know what to with the this category that is no longer needed. 07:33, 19 January 2013 (EST)
I've moved the talk page here as a reference and will delete the other category for now. TomHutchison (talk) 09:40, 19 January 2013 (EST)
