I do not really understand how to use mtDNA on females to assist the McClure Family Forum.

Can someone explain it to me, so I may try to get females in my line to test?

That's a tough one. I am just starting the Toynbee Surname Project whose main goal is to find if there are distinctly different male lines of descent represented by present-day Toynbees, and here's what I did.... 

I included the project goal to, "by means of mitochondrial DNA testing (women and men): Learn more about our female lineages" and posted the first set of mtDNA results (my own), mentioning what I did after receiving them. (I uploaded the results to mitosearch.org and to the National Geographic project, joined the ISOGG's DNA-Newbies mailing list, and also joined the T1 Haplogroup project. Because there were matches from many countries, I also ordered the HVR2 test.)

Cheers,
Claire

? If I understand Mitochondrial DNA correctly, it cannot be used in tracing families using a surname.? These mutations are passed through females only and their names usually change with each generation (marriage).

Females matching your own maternal DNA would be matches. Or test females that are in your family.Do you have any females? I hardly have any males,and I guess some males don't have any females.
