mtDNA Testing

From which “Daughter of Eve” do I descend?

The Daughters of Eve are named after some of the major haplogroups, but the names are arbitrary. The names usually begin with the same letter as the haplogroup name. We identify the haplogroup itself.

How do I find the genealogical connection with my mtDNA match?

The only way to find a connection with your match is by comparing your genealogies. In many cultures, women changed names with marriage. Therefore, it is important to compare geographic locations alongside genealogical information and surnames.
