I am U5a2c3a and have 23 HVR1 exact matches, only 2 HVR2 exact matches and 0 FMS matches.

My wife T2b, has 98 PAGES of HVR1 exact matches, she has 23 PAGES of HVR2 exact matches, she has 3 PAGES of FMS at 3 step Genetic distance.

My H54 maternal male 1C has, 438 PAGES of HVR1 exact matches, 7 HVR2 exact matches, 5 FMS matches 2 at 1 Genetic distance and 3 at 3.

(25 matches per page)

I just wish more folk would take the FMS test and join the projects.

My dad's results were just posted tonight, and he's U5b1c2b, with 9 exact matches on HVR1, no matches at all on HVR2, and 3 matches at GD3 for the FMS.

Now if I could just trace Dad's maternal line back to Europe from Virginia, since I'm back to the 1600s and still in Virginia... (I can trace back his maternal line 9 generations before him).

I haven't got my results yet (I'm honestly not expecting them til next week at the earliest because I was in the batch after my dad's). I do know where my most distant maternal ancestor is from, though -- Clifden, County Galway, Ireland. But I can only go back to my 3rd great-grandma on my own maternal line.

A female paternal 1C of mine , has pages of mtDNA matches,

29 FMS matches, 4 exact, 14 at 1GD, 8 at 2GD, 3 at 3GD

74 pages (25 per page) exact HVR2 matches

438 pages (25 per page) exact HVR1 matches

Hopefully this will help break her Irish mother line brick wall.

No MTDNA matches

I did the full sequence MTDNA test and received matches for the HVR1, 2, and Coding regions in mid January and NOTHING since. I cannot believe there has not been a new match at least on the HVR1 level since then.

I am shocked you have not had any new matches since 2014 though! Maybe FTDNA only provides one shot at matches with this test. Geez.

Next month will be two years since my mtDNA test results came in. To this day I have zero matches.

I'm waiting for my FMS to be completed. 23andme gave me B4a1a1 which threw me a curve so I ordered the full mtDNA. I don't expect to get many matches since whatever final designation I get, it's not very prevalent in the US. FWIW I have only 23 matches in FF.

Perhaps in the future more will FMS test. I think genetic genealogy is definitely long term.

My FMS results were posted a few weeks ago. I am in haplogroup I4a, and had 3 exact matches, 1 at GD 2, and 27 at GD3 on that level.

Howtree, what is your mt haplogroup, if you don't mind sharing it?
It really all depends on a person's haplogroup, how rare it is, and especially how many with it have tested to compare to you. Some will get a lot of matches, and some hardly any or none - until more people, with more mt haplogroups, test their mtDNA here.

FTDNA does not do only one shot at matches for mtDNA; it's just like the other Y or FF tests. When someone tests and matches you, they will show up.

My paternal Grandmothers mtDNA (T2b-T152C! ) seems to be a rare/undeterminded haplogroup.
Which incidentally ends in her childrens lines as everyone that could pass it on had sons.
Even my Grandmothers sister only had sons.

My Aunt has no coding region matches either (2 years 3 months and counting), with only one HVR2 match.
This match tested to FMS and is the same Haplogroup but has four differences at the coding region level, thus not shown as a match. Maternal line listed as USA.

My Grandmother was born in Romania near the Ukraine border, so I assume her mtdna group is currently under tested in Databases. Currently 10 listed at FTDNA ranging from Norway, Sweden, Germany, England and the US.

I just patiently wait and hope that at some point a match will show up, giving me a lead on my Grandmothers maternal line.....
