If you have a question about the mtDNA projects, post it here.

How are we showing the haplogroups on Geni profiles?

There at projects for many of the haplogroups, both mtDNA and yDNA. If we don't have a project we can create one.

Until Geni gives us some DNA fields we just add the profile to the right project.

Thanks Justin. I'm adding a Curator note including the mtDNA Haplogroup of the South African Progenitor grannies, while it is still a short piece of data - but in the long-run, here's hoping Geni gives a box on the profiles.

Hi Justin, I just received my mtDNA results from FamilyTree DNA, and cannot find my 'haplogroup' in any projects on Geni. I am looking for U2e2a1-4. I read that this is a rare and ancient line and I would love to find more info and family members that match. Thanks! Paula

Justin Swanström I have had a MtDNA test done from Family Tree DNA. My matriarchal 7th grandmother was Barbara van de Caap so this mtDNA might help establish her own ancestry which is Haplogroup L0d. How does one go about making a record of this on Geni? I am not familiar with the process or protocols of this.

Private User - Barbara van de Caap, SM/PROG is a South African mtDNA progenitor, who was a slave. I've got a number of SA mtDNA projects going, so your DNA result is much welcomed. I'll send you collaboration requests for 'SA mtDNA Female Progenitors': and 'DNA Mapping of the Slave Routes to Southern Africa:' to which we can add her.
I’ll also add the Haplogroup in a Curator note on her profile.

Sharon Doubell - Cruising the high seas Thank you Sharon! Apparently her haplogroup, L0d, L0d2 and L0d2c are Khoisan. Other than that, its all incomprehensible to me. ;) Thanks for your help.

So exciting - one of the oldest mtDNA Haplogroups there is! THis is the project: I've added her, and sent you a Collaboration request.

Sharon Doubell - Cruising the high seas I was very excited to get this information. It opens up a whole new facet of my ancestry! Thanks again, Sharon for all your help. I hope it will be a help for her other descendants to know her origins.

So fantastically helpful. Thank you for sharing it.
