1. [DNA-NEWBIE] now what? [1]
Sent in my MTA DNA request today and wonder what will happen next. I am trying to see if I connect to Catharina Margaret Vaught (Vogt) b 1715 in Germany. I have a paper trail to her son and hope to determine that she is his mother. Is this the way it works? How do I find other Vaughts who have tested? OR am I wrong? Would it have to be one of these women: my mother, grandmother Adair, ggrandmother Adiar --married a cousin, gg Trumbo, ggg Dague, gggg Baughman, ggggg Steele, gggggg Schleiffer? Does the

Karen- Provided that the great-great-great-grandmother (etc) in common for both is on the mother's mother's mother's side (tail female side---bottom line of the pedigrees). Joan --------- Thank you all for your enlightening responses to my questions about the mtDNA. I believe I understand it much better now. One new question,however: A female ancestor's DNA would go to all her daughters...and I assume that same DNA moves to the next generation, etc. So if I find another female relative wit

sorry Karen - if it was your own personal test sample [for mtDNA testing] that you sent in ... yes it will "only" shed light on that "single" line / chain .... you, your mother, her mother, her mother and so on, back as far as can be researched / documented on the direct maternal "female" line ... to help you to determine how to go about proving the relationship with DNA testing is going to be a bit hard to do on face value here, without any details of your genealogical connection to the person(s) in quest
4. Re: [DNA-NEWBIE] now what? -- mtDNA testing [1]
All of us get our mitochondrial DNA from our mothers, who get it from their mothers, back into the mists of history. If you had the mtDNA from Catharina's son, you could compare yours to his. Lacking that, mtDNA will not help link son to mother. Your father got his mother's mtDNA, but you get only your female line -- nothing from the male side of your line. You don't get your dad's yDNA either -- that only passes father to son. The DNA that you do get (autosomal) from both your mom and dad and all of

9. Re: [DNA-NEWBIE] now what? -- mtDNA testing [1]
Just to expand a bit on Valorie's comment that autosomal DNA is not of much genealogical testing value as the testing stands today (advancements continue to be made). The reason for this is that we ALL inherit 50% of our total genetic makeup from each of our parents but at present it can't be separated out as to WHICH 50% comes from our mother and which 50% comes from our father--because it is jumbled up together. The only DNA we CAN prove came ONLY from our mother is the mtDNA (in both male an

Happy New Year, DNA Newbies! May 2008 bring you all love, peace, health, and prosperity, as well as the crumbling of a few brick walls.

I've had the same scenario with four George Kendalls living in Northern Virginia, USA at the same time. I wrote descendants of each George and shared my research. One seemed very interested and even used my research on Ancestry.com. Another was interested, but took no action either way. One participated and there remaining has not responded. I have "courted" the families for over four years with letters, research, holiday cards, emails, phone calls and even Facebook friending. I've offered to pay for
14. [DNA-NEWBIE] Uploading to GEDmatch [1]
We have seen some variations in the matching between the different DNA company's raw data at Gedmatch. I would upload both companies. I have all 3 of my raw data files from FTDNA, 23andme and Ancestry uploaded to Gedmatch. There can be some differences. There is no need to delete any of your uploads. And FTDNA has always tested the X, it's just that it wasn't available to see on the site until recently. You will be required to upload the X from FTDNA to Gedmatch now. There will be two files to down

Joan, Those on the list are people with whom I am sharing DNA. I will have to invite his matches to share DNA (they have to accept) to get them to show up on the list. That makes sense. It has been a while and I did not use the tools at first when my results were available. Thanks Joan and Charles. Charles, yes, I did switch identities.

18. [DNA-NEWBIE] Getting a distant relative to test [1]
I have traced my gg grandfather (bell) back to Donaghmoyne Parish in Monaghan County Ireland. He was born there about 1806, it can be confirmed that he was living there in 1824, and that he was married in a nearby parish in 1836. He immigrated to Canada in 1840 with his wife and infant son. I visited Donaghmoyne Parish recently and found out that the last Bell family in the Parish immigrated to New Zealand in the 1920's. I have now made contact with descendants of this family and am hoping to confirm that
19. [DNA-NEWBIE] Uploading to GEDmatch [1]
My husband did a Family Finder test in April 2012. At that time I don't think they were testing the X chromosome. He just got his results from 23andMe and there is some X Chromosome information - so they did test the X. I would like to upload his results from 23andMe to GEDmatch with the X chomosome information, but he already has the Family Finder results there. I don't want to clutter GEDmatch with two accounts for him. What is recommended in this situation. Nancy in Louisiana

He has one person who is a 2nd to 4th cousin. I wanted to compare them in the one to one comparison but all the names in the drop down list are my matches. I checked to be sure I was on his page, not mine. Is this something that will be corrected in time? Nancy in Louisiana
21. [DNA-NEWBIE] FTDNA mt to autosomal [1]
I was lucky enough to get my mother's mt DNA testing done but we could never get her to be able to collect her saliva for autosomal testing. Can FTDNA take her sample of almost 2 years and attempt to obtain her autosomal from it, has anyone done this? And are you confident of the results obtained? If it is not possible, I can see if we can get her last living sibling to do it. But I suspect that may be harder

>I have tested at 23andME and would like to transfer test results to FTDNA. How do I do it, and what is the cost? Db ******************* First check to see when your results posted. FTDNA is not accepting recent results as it is not an apples-apples test result. FTDNA support told me: We are only able to accept transfers of V3. I didn't find that in the fineprint before I had purchased the upgrade. Denise
