    U5a2c3a and Just Got My First Ever mtDNA Match at FTDNA

    At long last I got my very first ever mtDNA match at Family Tree DNA. I have had plenty of y-dna matches, but never until today have I gotten a mtDNA match. It's just an HVR1 match, because that's as far as my mtDNA testing with FTDNA has gone. I do have much fuller results from BritainsDNA's Chromo2 test, which is how I know I am U5a2c3a. At FTDNA I am listed merely as U5.

    My most distant female line ancestor that I know about is my great grandmother, Nora Lancaster, who was born in March of 1878 in Lauderdale County, Alabama. She was married to my great grandfather, Sidney Richman Morris. Unfortunately, Nora is as far back as I can currently get on that Lancaster line. That's her photo below, with her kids (the teenaged girl on the right side of the photo is Katie Morris, a niece). My grandmother, Lela Morris, is seated on Nora's lap. My grandmother's brother, Doyle Morris, is on the far left of the photo. I don't know the name of the little blond girl standing between Doyle and my grandmother, but she is evidently their sibling. I'm guessing she probably died before reaching adulthood, which is why I don't know anything about her.

    Anyway, I emailed my new mtDNA match to see if he knows anything.

    I ordered my mtDNA test from FTDNA almost ten years ago (31 Dec 2006). It's about time I got a match.

    Congratulations! I know the feeling... of waiting anyway. Someday maybe FTDNA will find me a match. I hope your communications are enlightening!

    I heard back from my mtDNA match. Turns out his most distant mtDNA ancestor was in the same neck of the woods as mine, Alabama, at around the same time, but we just can't figure out who their common mtDNA ancestor is. At least we know they (and we) share one; it's just a matter of finding her.

    I already know that I belong to the U5a2c mtDNA haplogroup.

    Which level of precision can you get with the Geno 2.0 Next Generation kit?

    Sorry I don't know the answer to that question. I'm also sorry I did not see your question until just now, nearly a month after you posted it. I don't usually check the mtDNA subforum.

    The Geno 2.0 test is not very useful for mtDNA. It does not include the full mtGenome. It does include many of the most common SNPs but they do provide a list of individual SNP results, so it is not possible to try to identify a more specific subclade. Anyone interested in mtDNA should test the full mtDNA sequence.

    I noticed a Mesolithic U5a2c3* from the Blätterhöhle Cave in Germany (Bollongino 2013) at Jean M's Ancient Eurasian DNA site, so I decided to compare its results to mine. There are some differences, but we're not too far off, considering the time span involved (Blätterhöhle dates to 8652 ± 58 BC). I made a little table of the comparison, for what it's worth.

    This is based on my Chromo2 mtDNA results. Sorry to be ignorant, but is it as complete as FTDNA's FGS test?

    Okay, I see that Chromo2 only tests major branch defining SNPs, while FTDNA's FGS is the whole enchilada.

    So, I guess I still need the FGS test. Maybe I am actually closer to Blätterhöhle than I realize.
