THE GENEALOGY OF A NORTH YORKSHIRE FAMILY.
by John Goldsbrough

mtDNA

Testing your mtDNA uncovers the deep ancestral origin of your direct maternal line (your mother, your mother’s mother, etc.) and connects you with genetic cousins. Because your mtDNA has been passed on to you generation after generation by your direct maternal ancestors, it offers the most exact information possible for this line.

The results show that my maternal line is Haplogroup H1. A more detailed grouping has been given by the mtDNA H project group, it is now designated H1* - A10049G predictive new sub branch. At the time of writing my mtDNA is the only one other person with this grouping in Scandinavia.
