About us

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Hello! This project is open to men and women who have mtDNA testing done by Family Tree DNA, confirming assignment to mtDNA Haplogroup I. Your mtDNA is passed down through your direct MATERNAL lineage, which is your mother's mother's mother's line. (There is a separate and unrelated Haplogroup I that pertains to paternal /male Y-DNA testing that has its own set of haplogroup projects.) FTDNA customers with Full-Sequence mtDNA testing will benefit the most from this project. In your settings for Privacy & Sharing, if you permit project administrators to see your Coding Region data and if you will also provide Limited Access to your account, we can evaluate your specific haplogroup/subclade status. Sometimes, we can assign you to a more refined (specific) updated subclade or tell you if you belong to a subclade that has not yet been identified. To enable this evaluation, below are steps to ensure that your Privacy Settings allow administrators to see your Coding Region results and your Project Preferences enable Limited Access to administrators. (The data will only be visible to us on password-protected administrative pages and never shared with anyone.) To adjust the settings, please do the following: (1) In the upper right of your FTDNA page, next to your name, click on the arrow. This will give you a drop-down menu. (2) Choose "Account Settings." (3) Next, click on the tab for "Privacy Settings." (4) On the Privacy Settings page, scroll down to the the last option, which is for mtDNA Coding Region Sharing. (5) Please check the box to "Opt in to Sharing," this enables only project administrators to see the list of Coding Region variants on password-protected administrative pages. As noted above, the data is never shared with anyone else, and you can opt back out at any time. (6) Save your new setting. ---- (7) Next, click on the tab in the top part of the page for Project Preferences (8) For the I Haplogroup mtDNA Project, edit the setting and choose "Limited Access." (9) The system will ask you to confirm your choice. You're done! WE RESPECT YOUR PRIVACY: Our project NEVER shares your name, email address, account profile, shared surnames, family tree or coding region data with anyone. Be sure to read the "Background" and "Results" pages of the Project with information about our Haplogroup. Thank you for your interest in mtDNA Haplogroup I. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * .
