About Suzan Martin

Quest of love for my children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, preserving the records of our ancestors.

We are all here for a reason. It's because of:

  • 2 parents
  • 4 grandparents
  • 8 great-grandparents
  • 16 second great-grandparents
  • 32 third great-grandparents
  • 64 fourth great-grandparents
  • 128 fifth great-grandparents
  • 256 sixth great-grandparents
  • 512 seventh great-grandparents
  • 1024 eighth great-grandparents
  • 2048 ninth great-grandparents

For you to be born today from twelve previous generations, you needed a total of 4,094 ancestors over the last four hundred years.

Think for a moment- How many struggles? How many battles? How many difficulties? How much sadness? How much happiness? How many love stories? How many expressions of hope for the future? - did your ancestors have to undergo for you to exist in this present moment.... This is the reason to document and find all sources and upload them for each of your ancestors to It's our only way to honor our ancestors. They deserve to be remembered.

Note: I gleaned most of the above from my friend Lisa Locke Brady on Facebook - []

Like researching and documentation.

My Interest

Interest centers currently around Texas History. Attempting to make sure all notable Texan's profiles are in and have proper documentation and a profile written. It is time-consuming but rewarding,

Member of Texas State Genealogical Society, [] they have an

FTDNA project tracing early settlers of Texas, as well.

FTNDA projects

AncestryDNA, for what it's worth, has a new update in September 2020 and now in Oct 2020, I'm more Scottish now.

  • England & NW Europe 49%
  • Scotland 27%
  • Sweden 10%
  • Ireland 9%
  • Germanic Europe 3%
  • Wales 2%

H-1b1-T16362C YDNA R-Z280

  • D9S919 16-17 Native American
  • FTDNA mtDNA full sequence tested on the list SM71 Suzan Martin
  • 23&Me - my daughter is also on 23&Me - Ancestry DNA son & daughter
  • The best testing is FTDNA.

How many generations back does mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) testing trace? Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) testing covers both recent and distant generations.

Matching on HVR1 means that you have a 50% chance of sharing a common maternal ancestor within the last fifty-two generations. That is about 1,300 years. Matching on HVR1 and HVR2 means that you have a 50% chance of sharing a common maternal ancestor within the last twenty-eight generations. That is about 700 years. Matching on the Mitochondrial DNA Full Genomic Sequence test brings your matches into more recent times. It means that you have a 50% chance of sharing a common maternal ancestor within the last 5 generations. That is about 125 years. Mitochondrial DNA testing at Family Tree DNA also includes haplogroup testing. Your haplogroup represents your ancestral origins thousands and tens of thousands of years ago.

GEDmatch [] how to use correctly - My DNA crossed many times, many intermarriages of cousins, so the Minimum segment cM size should be set to 15 not the 7 - and don't combine with others, GED Match number KH7789081 , be aware this is an FTDNA mtDNA full with Family Finder Kit and will go back several generations. Please set the Minimum segment cM size to 15.

The difference of DNA testing- Testing Level Matching Level Generations to Common Ancestor

                                                        50% Confidence   Intv.	95% Confidence Interval
  • mtDNA HVR1 52 (about 1,300 years NA**
  • mtDNA Plus HVR1 & HVR2 28 (about 700 years) NA**
  • mtFull Sequence HVR1, HVR2,& Coding Region 5 (about 125 years) 22 (about 550 years)
    • The range of generations to a common ancestor at this level is too broad to calculate a 95% confidence period.

AncestryDNA, and many other testing facilities are too broad to calculate a 95% confidence and most have a 50% confidence testing.


I have Full Sequence FTDNA testing - The reason a person may not want to use an FTDNA Family Finder mtDNA full sequence test to compare against on a combo - they will always match. If we went back a few thousand years ago, we're all kin. You may want to check my AncestryDNA to compare if you're using to verify lineage. Though I have several lineages where I cross, I may not be a suitable candidate.

Recently had a match through my Moseley linage to a 24th cousin. When looked upon FTDNA Family Finder reports, we had a genetic distance of 3, which equals about 3,000 years ago - so
