Hi guys,

So I uploaded my 23andMe results to the James Lick mtDNA tool hoping to hammer down my haplogroup and essentially ... I got a two-way tie for best match (and a 15-way tie for 2nd-best match haha). The results for H3(A73G) and H3d essentially look exactly the same. Granting that I'm not particularly knowledgeable about haplogroup mutations, is there any way to tell which is the better match for me? Results posted below:

Bump.

My father is H3 like you and a subclade probably very similar to yours. Via this jameslick site, he gets the same top two results as yourself.

His mother was adopted as an infant, but via testing my dad, she was likely Danish and British Isles and or Irish.

Edit: oh, I didn’t read carefully, it would appear. He doesn’t get that tie, just two imperfect matches to those two. Still, similar subclade, no doubt.

The only way to have 100% verification of a subclade is with a full mtDNA test from a company that offers one such as FTDNA or Yseq.net

Absolutely in agreement with you. I am, however, a bit cheap. :)

Maybe one of these days.
