Testing your mtDNA uncovers the deep ancestral origin of your direct maternal line (your mother, your mother's mother, etc.) and connects you with genetic cousins. Because your mtDNA has been passed on to you generation after generation by your direct maternal ancestors, it offers the most exact information possible for this line.
View your mtDNA match list, and connect with genetic cousins. If your DNA has matches to other results in the mtDNA database, you will see a list with the names, their e-mail addresses, and the level of matching, so that you can contact them and exchange genealogical information.
View the ancestry information for your mtDNA matches. This includes places where your DNA haplotype is found today. The places listed are influenced by more recent migrations.
View the haplogroup information i.e., your maternal line's deep ancestral origin for your mtDNA matches. Haplogroups are genetic population groups, and mitochondrial haplogroups are composed of people who share a common ancestor on their direct maternal lineage. Your haplogroup tells you the branch on the mitochondrial tree of humanity to which you belong.
