The names and emails of your matches, genetic distance, and any genealogical information they have uploaded are provided to you in order to collaborate on genealogy and get past genealogical brick walls. This list of matches is optional, and you can decide to be removed from this list at any time.

As this test traces the maternal line with no influence from fathers, instead of an ethnic breakdown, it provides an ancestral migration route of your maternal line. This migration route is called a haplogroup and can provide deep anthropological information about the story of the human race as well as help refine your genealogical search. With an mtDNA test you will see a visual representation of this journey, as shown below:

mtDNA Matches

In addition to providing this deep ancestral migratory route, an mtDNA test also provides a list of people in our database who share a common direct maternal ancestor with you within the past 52 generations. Direct maternal matches (your mother, mother’s mother, mother’s mother’s mother, etc.) with you. If a person relates to you through a mother’s mother’s father’s line, mtDNA will not connect you to them.

There are two levels of mtDNA testing: mtDNA Plus and mtFull Sequence. The mtDNA Plus test provides basic maternal information and is more useful for deep anthropological information rather than genealogical information. The mtFull Sequence test significantly refines your matches and haplogroup to provide the closest possible living relatives to aid in genealogy and is much more useful for genealogical purposes.

The names and emails of your matches, genetic distance, and any genealogical information they have uploaded are provided to you in order to collaborate on genealogy and get past genealogical brick walls. This list of matches is optional, and you can decide to be removed from this list at any time.

Note: The three tests each have separate matching databases, and you can only compare your DNA to matches who have taken the same DNA test type. For example, if you have taken a Family Finder test, you can only compare your results to other people who have taken a Family Finder test and cannot compare your Family Finder matches to another person’s Y-DNA results.
