Saturday Night Genealogy Fun: My Matrilineal Line

Over at Genea-Musings Randy Seaver’s latest Saturday Night Fun assignment is:

1) List your matrilineal line - your mother, her mother, etc. back to the first identifiable mother. Note: this line is how your mitochondrial DNA was passed to you!

2) Tell us if you have had your mitochondrial DNA tested, and if so, which Haplogroup you are in.

OK, I'm game - I haven't gone back that far (in this line) YET but here's what I've got:

Mary Dana Post
Margaret Elizabeth Troyer (1909 ID -1987 CA) m. Hays Coulter Post
Mary Maria Motzko (1884 MN -19523 CA) m. Elmer David Troyer
Maria Fietzek (1857 Nowa Wies Krolewska Opolskie Poland -1927 ID) m. Philipp Motzko
Catherina Dyga (1816 Debie Poland – 1862 ) m. Martin Fietzek (Fiecek)

Mitochondrial DNA tested/Haplogroup - never heard of this and went to Wikipedia to check it out but will have to do further research to understand what it is all about - more on this at a later date.  Actually it all sounded like Greek to me!
