The "Genographic Project" will give you a Haplogroup letter, a list of your mutations/markers, and a map showing the migration path from Africa. This will lead you through the mutations from the African Eve/Adam, to whatever your haplogroup is. My haplogroup is L1 so mine shows no migration to speak of from Eve at L0.
African Ancestry's result will not include a Haplogroup. They will give you the name and present-day location of the population group or groups within which they have results in their database from person(s) whose mtDNA or Y-dna matches yours.
For mtDNA you will get the dna sequence, starting at location 16024, with your mutations highlighted. For Y-dna, you get a listing of the values for the 8 markers, as well as the YAP + or - value. Most of African paternal descent have a YAP +, those of European paternal descent do not.
I have a match to one group. My cousin had matches in two different groups. Another person I know of had matches in four different groups.
