H13 - mtDNA Haplogroup- Background



To join this Project, you need to have an mtDNA test at Family Tree DNA showing a result in mtDNA Haplogroup H13.

Members are encouraged to have the FMS (Full Mitochondrial Sequence), aka FGS (Full Genome Sequence of the Mitochondria) test at FTDNA.

Please check to see that you have your HVR1, HVR2, and Coding Region results turned on.

mtDNA tests reveal the DNA-based ancestral type of your genetic matrilineal line via your biological mother's mother's mother's mother.

Please enter the information to show who your Most Distant Known Ancestor (MDKA) on this line is, and where they lived.

An excellent representation of mtDNA Haplogroup H13 can be found about 3/4 of the way down the page at this link:
