Catherine le Febre is one of the important female ancestors in South Africa - at least, that is what I would like to think :-)
Reason is that I have inherited her mtDNA - you know my mother's mother's mother's mother's etc mother.
In any case, her haplogroup seems to be U5a.
Looking for other people who might have the same line so that we can compare our genealogical mtDNA information with one another. Ought to help us know a bit more about the accuracy of our family tree research...
