mtDNA is used to test your mother's mother's ... mother's maternal ancestry. It is difficult to use in a Surname DNA Project for genealogy, as the surname tends to change with every generation, but some people are beginning to make paper trail connections with mtDNA. For information, see our mtDNA page.

We encourage everyone who has been mtDNA tested to join their mtDNA haplogroup project. See our mtDNA Haplogroup Projects page for more information.
- 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’ll want the mtDNA Full Sequence test, which costs $449. (FTDNAi calls this test “Mega”) FTDNA suggests this for anyone who doesn’t wish to be upgrading when they need more info – as this will give you the entire sequence.
