Both men and women can do mtDNA testing. HVR1+HVR2 tests 1135 locations of the mitochondria and the the full sequence tests 16,569 locations. HVR1+HVR2 can provide significant results. For example, l found that my genealogical work was correct because I matched many other people who had Perrine Bourg as their most distant maternal ancestor. The full sequence test tests all 16,569 locations of the mitochondria. This test provides the highest level of confidence that your mtDNA matches share a common ancestor within the genealogical time frame.

Originally this project was set up as a Y-DNA project, but individuals with mtDNA results also joined the project. Therefor, mtDNA results are now available to view. If you don't see your results there, it is because you have them on private.

My last name is Hodgson. The Hodgsons (including several Johns and Josephs and Fredericks) lived in D.C. throughout the nineteenth century and into the twentieth, and are mostly buried in D.C.'s Congressional Cemetery, but I am at a loss for cousins. My goal is to connect with any Hodgson descendants I can find. I am female myself, so there are no Y-DNA tests done that I know of done for this line. (Yet.) Female surnames married in to the Hodgson tree that I know of: Barron, Webster, Munroe, Handley, Irving, Purlington, Schultz, Stockett, Newman, Tarring, Anderson, Cissel, Smithson, Laufer, Gleason. Surnames taken by female Hodgsons through marriage: McClelland, Birch, Dennison, Lorentz, Vannatar, Clark, Evans, Roberts, Thaden, Markell.

I am descended from Handleys too, so please tell me more about your Handley line.

In my tree, Maria Louise Handley was born in Virginia around 1832. She married Joseph F. Hodgson in 1850, and had Mary Ellen, Charles Stuart, Laura C, and Annie Monroe Hodgson. (Monroe was Joseph F. Hodgson's mother's maiden name.) I don't really know anything about the Handleys beyond that, though.

Thanks Lyle. It could be your line is from George Handley, who came to the United States from Sheffield, England and settled in Georgia. He was the 21st Governor of Georgia. His family then spread out over the south. I will be going back to England to do more research on the Handley family genealogy/history and will post updates here: https://www.gofundme.com/handley-family-genealogy

I have no close HODGSON cousins; however, I have a William Theodore HODGSON b 1867, m. 17 Mar 1891 in DC to Ella Anderson PAYNE (my 2C3R). I list one child for them, a dau named Ruby May (b? d? m. Robert WILSON. I have STOCKETT originating in MD (my mother, from DRURYs in DC from early 1800s, is a descendant). SMITHSON is a 'Maryland' surname, too .. not much but maybe a clue with what you receive from others...

Thanks to the quick response of FTDNA, mtDNA results are now available to view. Though 11 people have submitted their mtDNA results, only 5 are showing, so check your FTDNA settings if you want your results displayed.

I jwanted to let you know that though this project was originally established as a Y-DNA project, there are 11 people who have joined this project with mtDNA results. I will request from FTDNA that the project be updated so that project members can also view the mtDNA results.

If your going to DC to do some genealogy work, it can be a bit tricky, To get the most out of your visit, plan ahead of time as many places you will want to visit have restrictions that you may not experience in your hometown/state. Don't forget to see some of the great sites too!
