This is an index of mt-DNA projects on geni.com. This list was last updated: Tue Oct 15 10:45:22 2019

There are 2,195 mt-DNA projects on geni.com

Total Count of all mt-DNA Profiles: 796,401

The projects in this index are automatically created by geni.com when a user uploads mt-dna test results to geni. Mitochondrial (or mt for short) dna passes from a mother to each of her sons and daughters. When you upload a mt-dna test results to geni it first copies the haplogroup designation to the profile of the male or female tested. Additionally it then copies the mt-dna haplogroup name up to that person's mother, and then their maternal grand-mother and so on for up to 10 generations. Geni also copies the haplogroup designation down to all direct female descendants of these 10 maternal generations. Remember that males also receive mt-dna from their mothers but men do not pass on mt-dna to their offspring.

Only projects auto-created by geni and the profiles automatically assigned to these particular projects are included in this index. There are several hundred other dna related projects that have been created by individual geni users which are not included in this index.
