|mtDNA is used
to test your mother's mother's ... mother's maternal ancestry.
It is difficult to use for genealogy, as the surname changes every generation, but there are reports of paper trail connections being made with mtDNA.
Those who take an mtDNA Test may join:
* A Maternal Lineage Project for individuals that have or suspect having the same maternal line.
* A Mitochondrial Geographical Project to verify a possible point of origin for the maternal line.
We encourage everyone who has been mtDNA tested to join their mtDNA haplogroup project. You can do so from your personal FTDNA homepage.
If you are seeking information on your deep ancestry (1000s and 10,000s of years ago) the standard, $99 mtDNA test should be sufficient. (This test is sometimes called HVR1)
If you wish to use your mtDNA result to confirm a maternal ancestry (you and another person share a common maternal ancestor) then you will gain by taking the mtDNA Plus test which costs $149 (This test is sometimes called HVR1 + HVR2).
If you wish to test your entire mtDNA sequence, then you will want the mtDNA Full Sequence test, which costs $279. FTDNA suggests this for anyone who does not wish to be upgrading when they need more info as this will give you the entire sequence.
