Thank you, Laura. At FTDNA, I had both HVR1 and HVR2, so this FGS must be
comparable. I thought FGS might be something new I could test for. :-)

Thanks, again,

FGS stands for Full Genome Sequence and is shorthand for the testing
of your entire mitochondrial DNA sequence. ArgusBio has it described
as "full length mitochondrial genome sequencing" and calls the test
Complete mtDNA, while FamilyTreeDNA lists it on their website at
mtDNA Full Sequence. Wikipedia has a brief introduction to
mitochondrial DNA here:

And Ian Logan has an mtDNA website, which includes a comprehensive FAQ:
