    Question Question about FTDNA's mtDNA Full Sequence Test

    How long is FTDNA's Full Sequence mtDNA test taking these days?

    Thanks in advance for your responses.

    Guess my Full Sequence results will set the standard, since no one has answered my original post.

    That's okay. I'm used to sticking my neck out and being something of a pioneer. I was arguing back in 2006 that y-dna R1b was not in the FC Ice Age Refuge. That was a lonely position back then, believe me.

    It's kind of good to have some dna test results in the FTDNA oven once again. This is the last major test for me from FTDNA. I've done all the rest. Besides this, all I have now is other people's test results.

    I would answer you, except I’m in the same boat, so I don’t know either. ;-)

    I'm not sure about how long it will take right now, but I ordered mine about this time last year - ordered 11/14/2016, batched 11/16/2016, completed 12/08/16.

    It took a month but that was in 2012. I have a couple 0 genetic differences but we are unable to find an ancestress in common

    Hi rms2, are you hoping to get many matches with your full seq mtdna? Or are you just trying to get the fullest known Haplogroup possible?
    I was told can’t remember by who, that a full seq mtdna would not really be beneficial for me.

    I think I ordered primarily because it is on sale for a really good price and because it's the only major test from FTDNA I have not yet done. The fact that the Full Sequence used to cost over $500 was a big draw, as well.

    I also want to compare my full results to those of the Blätterhöhle woman, BLA 20, who is listed as U5a2c3*, but whose results thus far match my Chromo2 mtDNA results pretty closely. Unfortunately, Chromo2 did not cover the whole mtDNA genome, so there are some gaps that I cannot compare with BLA 20. I know she probably isn't my ancestor (buy maybe she is), but I am curious to see how closely related we are on the mtDNA line, and she is nearly 11,000 years old!

    I do also want to see how close I am to my two HVR1 matches, a brother and sister. Their mtDNA mdka was born in 1836 in the same northern Alabama county (Lauderdale) as my mtDNA mdka was in 1878.

    Mine was batched Jan 9, 2017, and completed Feb 2, 2017, so about a month. I wasn't sure if that was "these days." ;-)

    Regarding how useful it is, I was mostly interested in deep ancestry, but I had a 1 mutation difference match that is also a family finder match, which allowed me to drill down on people who match both of us or over the specific chromosome (I tested my mother with FTDNA too, Family Finder only), so comparing that portion of the chromosomes with her and me I came up with some additional people who I think are related on the matrilineal line which has been a brick wall.

    That hasn't really progressed anywhere specific yet, but it got me interested in working on that brick wall again and I've made some real progress, at least a little because of focusing in on some DNA matches.

    I have a perfect match also who is not family finder, and one thing that seems interesting is plotting out the mutation pattern to see the most recent and so on.

    Of course, I still have no clue whether the line in question is German, English, or Scots-Irish (or something else, but those are the most likely).

    My father's matrilineal line was one of the lines I have traced back the farthest, and it was nice that the mtDNA confirmed the paper research to some extent in that I have a few matches who go back to the same ancestors through different paths. But again there I have people who go back to an identifiable ancestor in the 1600s (or 1700s) in some cases, and some others who are also perfect matches who have to be super distant, as they came to the US from Germany in the 1800s (vs. our line that came to Massachusetts from Suffolk in the 1630s).

    I don't know that mtDNA is specifically useful unless you get lucky, but I think it's really interesting and am looking forward to having more of the more specific ancient DNA tests to distinguish between the various subgroups (because "K" or "H" or "U" don't tell you much).
