This project centers on the mtDNA of our maternal ancestors. Both men and women are invited to participate if their direct maternal line (mother's mother's mother... etc.) is documented as coming from Alsace, or is believed to be from Alsace or the Moselle region of Lorraine. We also encourage those taking the FamilyFinder test with known Alsace/Moselle ancestry to join the project. You will not be included on the mtDNA results page unless you also had an mtDNA test; however, it will be easier to check for matches within the project if you join. Please read the background and goals of the Project before joining. The project administrators will send you a follow up email requesting additional information on your Alsatian/Moselle connection. You can contact the administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for participating!!
