  • Same Haplogroup for maternal aunt and niece?

    Do a maternal half aunt and niece share the same haplogroup? The mother of the aunt is the maternal grandmother of the niece.

    mtDNA is only passed on by mothers to their children, so niece will have inherited her mtDNA from her mother, who received it from her mother (nieces maternal Grandmother)

    If maternal half aunt is the daughter of this nieces maternal Grandmother, then yes they will have the same mtDNA

      Thanks, prairielad
      I thought this was the case, but since I'm new to this test, I wanted to make sure my assumption was correct.
