    That WAS fun to look at..my daughter-in-law is a K and that is what her matches look like also.Since she knew little to nothing about that ancestor it WAS informative.

    With my J2( I am still awaiting a slowww FGS) I am deducing that my Cork born GGGM might have had Norman roots like many of my other Irish ancestors as I have a couple of matches that were said to be Huguenot including one who came on the Mayflower
    Not mine of course.. mine were all mostly "Bog-trotters" or "Mackeral -snatchers" as my mostly Irish Dad used to say..I have matches from Cork itself, Scotland and the Huguenot expats.

    mtDNA testing is for deep ancestry, which can be fun to investigate.

    I put my own closest matches on a Google map: http://tinyurl.com/67nl5c

    Not much information is really available from a HVR1 and 2 match is there especially since there is only a 50-50 chance of having a common ancestor. So disappointing after all this time.
