To View the mtDNA Results:  Dunbar mtDNA Results


mtDNA is used to test your mother’s, mother’s, mother’s maternal ancestry.  It is difficult to use for genealogy, as the surname is changing every generation, but there are scattered reports of paper trail connections being made 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 wish to use your mtDNA results 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 $69.00.


If you wish to test your entire mtDNA sequence, then you want the mtDNA Full Sequence test which costs $199.00.  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.


An upgrade from mtDNA to mtDNA Full Sequence is $159.00 and the upgrade from mtDNA Plus to Full Sequence is $139.00.
