mtDNA results from FamilyTreeDNA

I recieved the test results from my DNA sample. My certificate states:

Certificate - mtDNA
Family Tree DNA certifies tha a mitochondria DNA sample taken from

differs from the Cambridge Reference Sequence (CRS)* at the numbered positions indicated, by the presence of the base designated A, C, G, or T:

Haplogroup H Sample # xxxxx

The letters designate the base - adenine, cytosine, guanine ot thymine - that occurs at each of these position in place of the CRS 540-base portion for the Hyper Variable Region 1 (HVR-1) starting at position 16.001 and ending with 16,569, as well as the 510 base portion for Hyper Variable Region 2 (HVR-2) starting at position 61 and ending with 570. These are distinctive of this sample and may be compared to other people to confirm or rule out common descent, providing genetic evidence of genealogical relationships.

1ST Segment 16519C
2ND Segement 263G, 309.1c, 315.1C

* The Cambridge Reference Sequence is the accepted mtDNA standard

Does this statement and these numbers ring a bell with others on this Forum?
