The mtDNA Community matching pages contain many of the same tools and features as internal Family Tree DNA matching. The difference is that potential matches at mtDNA Community include samples from a diverse number of academic population studies alongside a subset of Family Tree DNA customers. This means that mtDNA Community offers an additional chance to find matches related to your distant origins.
