If you have and thoughts about future genealogy research, regardless of the
reasons, you should do it. You have nothing to lose, and much to gain,
should you want to expand your genealogy research, and possibly for future
reasons, currently unknown to us. I have found the CHART information at
FTDNA site http://www.familytreedna.com/ most useful in helping me to
understand the mtDNA inheritance. I would suggest that you not miss the
opportunity to have a sample of your mother's DNA.
