    Sara can not be the matrilineal ancestor of both you and the other group of people. She can be the matrilineal ancestor of either you or them, or neither, but not both.

    I meant matrilineal, apologies.

    By "maternal" do you mean matrilineal or not?

    started a topic Common maternal ancestor but different haplogroups

    Common maternal ancestor but different haplogroups

    My MtDNA test result reports me as being haplogroup A with 8 HVR1 differences (from RSRS). I have 'No [HVR1] matches found at this level of testing' for (1) matches heading (2) ancestral origins heading (3) haplogroup origins heading.

    A researcher has identified a possible maternal ancestor (call her Sara) and a 7 people (call them 1-7) who have proven maternal links to Sara. The researcher has pointed out that my haplogroup A differs from the haplogroup K reported by 1-7 and queried this with me.

    Which is more likely? My haplogroup result is wrong and I am actually K not A? The researcher is wrong: I do not share Sara as a common ancestor with 1-7? Both my haplogroup A and my maternal link to Sara are correct; in other words is it possible for descendants from a common maternal line (i.e. my great great ... grandmother Sarah to belong to different haplogroups (A and K in this case)?
