My mtDNA results at FTDNA have me flummoxed.
I really don't understand them at all so I have ignored them since my first match came through in May 2016. Of the 118 matches on the site not one of them appears to have a connection to me. 85 of these matches share my K1a10a haplogroup but not one of the names on the list of matches looks vaguely familiar. Of the Earliest Known Ancestors nominated by my matches not one rings a bell.
A map shows me that my mtDNA HVR2 matches number 41 I've clicked on each of those red pins and am none the wiser.

It seems as though I need to upgrade to the Full Sequence test to get more meaningful results....look what appeared on my FTDNA page. Just what I needed!!
Of course I signed up - I am saving $US99 on this Mother's Day offer. When the results come in I'll let you know if this was money down the drain or if I have been enlightened!
