Very strange that my closer match is from a common ancestor from 20 000
years ago. Something is wrong.
[[[ If closeness of match is measured in mutational differences, and age
estimates are made from mutational differences, your comment above makes no
Remember; some of these mtdna mutations are at volatile sites and back
mutations can occur.
And it is not obvious to me right now that the people classifying mtdna
haplotypes are doing so consistently or correctly. ]]]
