Re: Haplogroup mtDNA L3f
In Response To: Re: Haplogroup mtDNA L3f ()

Hello Debra,

I'm like Linda, H3 mtDNA Haplogroup, so I don't really follow my mtDNA matches on FTDNA, just too many matches!! For example at the HVR1 level of testing I have 11,932 matches.... HVR1 & HVR2 level of testing there are 2,363 matches.

I do find the Ancestral Origins interesting, although somewhat confusing. The "origin" is where the testee resides, not necessarily the location (country) of their ancestral maternal "origin". Example, I match 3 persons of the 54 tested in Brazil for Haplogroup H3 in the mtDNA HVR1 & HVR2 regions.

Hi Debra, Not much of anything. Sorry. I don't pay much attention to my MTDNA. My haplogroup is H3h and I have a huge amount of matches. What I do look at is my Ancestral Origins on FTDNA to see in what country of origin I have the most matches.
