About the mtDNAPlus test

Reach into the past through mtDNA testing to uncover the deep ancestral origin of your direct maternal line (your mother, your mother’s mother, etc.) and connect with genetic cousins.

  • Mid-level mtDNA test.
  • Tests both HVR1 and HVR2 (Hypervariable Regions 1 and 2).
  • Provides ancestral origin of the direct maternal line.
  • Includes HVR1 and HVR1+HVR2 matches.
  • HVR1+HVR2 matches are related within the past 28 generations.

The results include
Genetic matches, maternal ancestral origins, maternal haplogroup, haplogroup migration map, haplogroup frequency map, and test results certificate. No subscription fee will be charged we’ll continue to update you about new matches and other information regarding your results.

What level of mtDNA should I test?
The level of mtDNA testing you choose determines how many sections of the DNA will be examined. Comparing more DNA allows you to find your closest relatives and refine your maternal Haplogroup.
