  • Filter mtDNA matches by information user made in comments? Specifically, Ashkenazi

    I'm looking at my mtDNA ancestral and haplogroup origins, and I see some that included "Ashkenazi" in their comments. I have 2% Ashkenazi in my autosomal DNA and am interested to see if I can discover from where it came. Is there a way to sort matches by that information? I don't see a way to click on those matches in the ancestral or haplogroup origins charts.

    But what mtDNA haplogroup are you in, and at what level(s) are you matching Ashkenazim in your mtDNA? If they are not in your Full Coding Region screen, your direct maternal line is probably not the source of your purported Ashkenazic ancestry.

    And even if you match some there, some Ashkenazim match non-Jews, even as closely as in the Full Coding Region screen, for reasons other than having shared Jewish ancestors in common.
