A mitochondrial DNA test (mtDNA test) traces a person's matrilineal or mother-line ancestry using the DNA in his or her mitochondria. mtDNA is passed down by the female, unchanged, to all her children. Her daughters will pass it onto all of their children, but her sons will not.

Your mtDNA-line is therefore your mother's mother's mother etc; and your mtDNA South African Progenitor is the first woman on that line who arrived in SA.

Project Aim:

To collect all our mtDNA PROGS' profiles, with a list of their Geni user descendants. Below, please add your South African mtDNA PROG & yourself if you can trace her back to her arrival in SA on the Geni tree; or if you know her from genetic testing and she is on the tree.

facebook_white_small_short.gif There's a good SA DNA Genealogy FB page here: Using DNA for Genealogy – South Africa. It's not geni affiliated, but has lots of our users on it.

All About mtDNA in Genetic Genealogy by Roland Henry Baker, III

Do you mean that everybody with eg the u5b mtDNA haplogroup has the same female ancestor from 24,000 yrs ago?

But that relies on the assumption that the Geni tree is accurate, doesn’t it?
What about improving the certainty by testing another matrilineal (motherline) descendant?

OK, how far back does autosomal testing work?
