Hey Samuel,

How r u?

Wanted to ask are you satisfied with your family tree dna results? I certainly am not.. I was told that mt and ptdna testing can go 1000s of years back whereas the ftdna autosomal testing only goes 5 generations and exact matches.. I didn't have exact matches

when I did the mtdna. They were 1 or 2 mutations difference but was still genetic matches.. I want to have all match results not just exact.. It feels like a waste of money the way they do this.. I am going

to upload my results into other databases and see what I get..

Yea I got mind back yesterday.. Sort of disappointed.. It only matched me with 1 person which doesn't make sense because I uploaded mydna in other databases and had several matches

that mentioned they had tested with ftdna.. Why wouldn't those matches show up in my ftdna

results? This was the most expensive testing I have done. I hope my money wasn't wasted..

Hi Samuel,

Haven't spoke with you in a while.. Did you do your testing with Family Tree DNA? I'm still waiting

on my results.. I uploaded my results in several other databases.. Genebase returned

a match with the name Antonio Chavez and Maria Gomez, original location of San Luis Potosi, Mexico..

Are you familiar with either of those names and/or location?

Hey Samuel,

First of all, why no pic..??? lol

Ok. I misunderstood what you meant by h1 and h2.. Halogroup D is the overall

halogroup that we fall into.. D1 is a subgroup of D.. I have googled for information

and found the link below which explains D1.. Hope it helps you understand a little better.

Wikipedia explains D1 subgroup of D.. 

At 10:49am on August 27, 2011, Elmira L Johnson said…

Ok. I thought you were asking about D1 subgroup before. I assumed you had tested

to be under D halogroup. Well, when you get your results uploaded in other databases

you may find more matches like I did.. Good luck...



At 7:32pm on August 26, 2011, Elmira L Johnson said…


I am curious though.. So why don't you manually input your mtdna results into It's free and we will see if you show up in my list of matches.. I have

11 matches so far.. I found 69 at genebase and 77 at All these

cousins from all over the world and I don't know any of them, and this is only my mother's side.. lol

At 6:17pm on August 26, 2011, Elmira L Johnson said…

That's very possible Samuel. I'm sure being in D halogroup and specifically D1 doesn't

mean everyone is genetically matched.. Making a comparison of dna results determines

genetic connection as you know.. I'm waiting for my results from ftdna now. Just had

it done. My mtdna was done with ancestrybydna..

At 1:20pm on August 25, 2011, Elmira L Johnson said…

My mother has always said she thought her grandmother was part Cherokee.. My dna

testing only proved she was native american.. Since being female I can only trace

maternal(mtDNA) results being ingenious american  I have done a family tree dna to get results for the rest of me.. lol
