mtDNA Full Sequence Release Survey

A survey has appeared when I log in. It doesn't seem to be a survey - more like a permission form. I'm very happy to help.

The first sentence is:
"Herein, I give my consent to use my complete mtDNA sequence for scientific studies. I am aware that my sequence will be submitted to NCBI as part of a future published paper......"

Then there are boxes/spaces for:
3. Ancestry information of maternal grandmother.

4. Ancestry information of maternal grandfather.

5. Ancestry information of paternal grandmother.

6. Ancestry information of paternal grandfather.

7. Please provide any additional information related to your maternal lineage (including any information that you have beyond your grandparents).

To me it's very unclear what they'd like to know. Do they want actual names and dates for these ancestors?

I also don't understand why they require any information on any of the ancestors other than the matrilineal line if it's a mtDNA study.
