My cousin's mtDNA Haplogroup is L3d, Ethiopia. The African Ancestry match is to the Mende and the Temne of Sierra Leone. This is my father's maternal lineage.

DNA Tribes uses autosomal dna, while African Ancestry uses only mtDNA and Y-chromosome dna. You would likely not get as many different groups.

Yes, autosomal DNA is from ALL of your ancestors.
