Results from Family Tree DNA

If you don't understand what mtDNA is, here is a brief explanation. The mt means "mitochondrial" and is inherited only from the mother. Because of the way mtDNA is passed down it is essentially the study of the human female genetic lines with the mothers mtDNA passed to all children, male and female, but only the female children can pass their mtDNA on to their children. In other words, males with carry their mothers mtDNA but will not pass it on to their children, however, a female will pass her mtDNA to all her children and the female children will pass it on to their children.

Below is a chart on what I believe to be my mtDNA line. If you find mistakes or can add to this line, please let me know.
