GEDcom question.

I uploaded my data to GEDcom after I received my Autosomal results, but before I had my mtDNA results. Do I need to do it again after I received my mtDNA results ?

No, because the mtDNA is different than your autosomal DNA, and not included in the file you would upload to GEDmatch.com. Your Family Finder file does not change when you do other testing at FTDNA. The three types of testing are separate: autosomal (includes the X chromosome), mitochondrial (mtDNA), and Y-DNA.

Also, mtDNA and Y-DNA are not used by GEDmatch.com. You can edit your profile at GEDmatch to show your haplogroups for mtDNA and Y-DNA, if you know them.
