South African mtDNA Project Website- Background
South African mtDNA
The project was started in September 2008. Results are classified by region, as can be found here, for example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haplogroup
For more information, read the FAQ on Family Tree DNA> There are also a number of useful articles in Wikipedia.
Further reading: I also recommend the book Trace your roots with DNA by Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak and Ann Taylor and authors authors Spencer Wells and Bryan Sykes (particularly "Seven Daughters Of Eve").
