What's the time frame for a full match on HVR1, HVR2, Coding Regions? There can be a lower limit, since you have 0 with your mother too, but what's the upper limit? Is there even one? Or could a 0 distance match still be thousand years apart in theory?

FTDNA writes about this:

Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) testing covers both recent and distant generations.

Matching on HVR1 means that you have a 50% chance of sharing a common maternal ancestor within the last fifty-two generations. That is about 1,300 years.

Matching on HVR1 and HVR2 means that you have a 50% chance of sharing a common maternal ancestor within the last twenty-eight generations. That is about 700 years.

Matching on the Mitochondrial DNA Full Genomic Sequence test brings your matches into times that are more recent. It means that you have a 50% chance of sharing a common maternal ancestor within the last 5 generations. That is about 125 years.

With the matches I have, from the genealogical point view, its surely more than 300 years and could still be 500 plus years rather. The last 125 years are completely out of question, because I have the paper trail and autosomal matches proving it. It must be far beyond 300 years also, which is where my and of some of the matches the paper trail ends. The most likely origin, considering the matches, is about 700-800 years ago with the German Ostkolonisation.

Which is the second level of a 50 percent chance for HVR1/HVR2 matching time according to FTDNA. If its not the German Ostsiedlung, it must be the Slavic migration period, which would extend it another time, for a time scale between 600 and 1.200, so between 800-1.400 years BP.

What are your experiences with FTDNA full matches and the time frame? Could you pin it down and did anyone detect a common female ancestor via a full match on FTDNA?
