Linda Jonas helped me to submit my results to GenBank and was great to work with. She put in a lot of hard work and volunteered to do it. I don't think I could have done it by myself. So, I applaud Linda and Ian Logan and others who will volunteer to help us to submit our results to GenBank because they are under no obligation to anyone to do that. They volunteer out of the goodnes of their heart and to help advance the cause of DNA.

Like many of us Linda is a volunteer project admin and does *not*
work for FTDNA, nor is she "unbusinesslike" or "rude" to have a spam
filter. Far from it. At this point she has already put in many hours
helping people submit their full sequence results to GenBank; simply
fill out the spam filter request and Linda will send you instructions
for the submit process.
