SmartMatching is a tool that is used to limit your mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) matches and the information about your matches' historic and anthropological migrations to those that are relevant.
Some mtDNA sequences may look the same in the HVR1 and HVR2 regions yet belong to different haplogroups. These sequences are unrelated in recent or even more distant times. Therefore, we do not show them on your mtDNA Matches, mtDNA Ancestral Origins, and mtDNA Haplogroup Origins pages.
Note: Some individuals have taken more extensive haplogroup tests or have tested their mtDNA full genomic sequences to provide them with a more specific haplogroup. In these cases, we still display the name, e-mail, and origin information for those with haplogroup assignments that may be related.
