    3. Hi Jackie, I see where your Y-DNA test is in Group V of the Rose DNA Project. The maternal test is the mtDNA. If you take just the standard mtDNA test (Hvr1/Hvr2) it will only give you your ancient haplogroup which involves thousands of years and is not good for a genealogical time frame. In other words, it will not help you find meaningful matches in the last thousand or more years. The best test in mtDNA is the full sequence which is currently selling for $219 through today. However, understand that there are still not that many who have taken the full sequence and its genealogical use is still in its infancy. I took the test to be a pioneer to see what it will eventually do for me. However, if you have a well developed family tree for most of your ancestors, the better test would be the Family Finder currently selling for $199. This will give you matches across all your ancestors back several generations. It will still require researching together with each of your matches, but offers you more than the mtDNA full sequence for now. The advantage of this test is if you have a match that lists many of their surnames, you can research any of the surnames you match. I hope this helps.

    3. Jackie, if you are considering either test, I would order now as today is the last day of FTDNA's sale at the prices I listed.
