More YAY!!! Hi Carrie, aka "Squaw". I am glad to see some activity. I am going bonkers waiting for my Mega results. Since I tested with the Genographic Project and then transferred the results, I was able to get a discount on a few selected tests, one of them being the mtDNAtoMega, or something like that, which is what I chose. Expected results estimated at 4/16.

In the meantime, doing a little bit of surname research, some historical research and trying to tie in ends. Let's say the knots aren't tight enough. This reminds me that I should go to mitosearch and check the matches again.

For anyone interested, if you have your mtDNA info, you can do searches for free. The site is www.mitosearch.org. It's a public service from FTDNA.

I know that the names of DNA tests can vary, even within the same site. It can be overwhelming for one new to all this, like it was for me. Here is some info to help those considering the full genome sequence for mtDNA. This is from Family Tree DNA, or FTDNA:

The Mitochondrial DNA Full Genomic Sequence test, sometimes called the Mega test, test will:

Return results for all three parts of your mitochondrial DNA.
HVR1 - 16001 to 16569
HVR2 - 00001 to 00574
The Coding Region - 00575 to 16000
Improve the quality of your matches for geographic and ethnic origins.
Provide the highest level of confidence in a match for genealogical research.
Allow your assignment to a subclade within your haplogroup.

If you are interested in the full sequence, independent of where you go to be tested, for mtDNA make sure you are getting the HVR1, HVR2, and the coding region. This will ensure you are getting the full mtDNA genome sequence test [no matter what "they" call it!!!]
