Re: Advice On How to Begin Bridging a Gap in Research #dna

My understanding (and I'm no expert) is that mitochondrial DNA does not mutate very often, so searching for specifics through mitochondrial DNA is difficult.  You would probably do better tracing through family DNA.  Even better, if you have close male relatives, Y-DNA is possibly more accurate.
