Tested @ FTDNA
Haplogroup - U*
HVR1 differences from CRS
16189C, 16325C

Maternal lineage:

Minerva Dilba [b. 1842, MO]
Elizabeth Callaway [b. 1873, MO; d. 1957, OK]
Alta Elgerine Fleming [b. 1900, IT/OK; d. 1985, OK]
Living Mann

Minerva is my 3xGreat Grandmother. I know very little about her and the DILBA surname is extremely elusive. I have no clue as to the origins of the surname or if it is, in fact, her actual surname. I would welcome any help or advice on this subject as well as tips or hints in making the most of my mtDNA test results.

I just recently tested with FTDNA. I am U5a1 and so far have no exact matches even at the HVR1 level (had the full FGS). I am looking forward to learning as much as I can about this haplotype!

Nice info on your blog Debbie. I am having trouble finding info on this U4 haplogroup. Much easier to find information about my Y line. (I2a1)

Hi Barbara,
I am U5b1b, I tested with 23andme and FTDNA. I was assigned to the same Haplogroups from both companies.

I run the U5a1_FGS Project at Family Tree DNA. This project is for anyone who has tested their full mtDNA and matches the signatures currently posted on the sit. As a small group we are trying to work together to find our common ancestor. As we all know mtDNA is so slow to mutate that you really need the full genome sequence in most cases with a lot of luck to find that common ancestor, but it has been done.

Please check the website and compare your marker results.

Email me directly with any questions and check out my blogs below.

Thank you,

If you do not hear from me in a timely manner, just write again...I was buried in email. LOL

I'm interested in connecting with anyone who has done their full mtDNA and are at least a U5a1 according to Family Tree DNA.

Hi Barbara, I did do a piece on my blog about my mtDNA results which you can read if you're interested. You will find the posting here.

I'm following the testing of a relative who is U5a1a. We have only been able to trace his maternal line to his GGG Grandmother, b. 1813 in Atchinson, Kansas

Helpful resource on the U Haplogroup: The Wikipedia entry on the mtDNA Haplogroup U lists U1, U2, U3, U4, U5, U6, U7 and U8. Click to read.
