Hello all DNA Genners,

I am a little confused about DNA testing and the results. I have
submitted my mtDNA to Family Tree DNA. I have also signed up for
the Ukraine group.

Periodically, I receive notification of matches and now have
approximately 150 matches using my Low resolution HVR1 DNA results.

matches. Should I be contacting just the people in my Haplogroup

FAQ but still need some additional help.

Thanks in advance,
Hope Gordon
