    Mixed Haplogroup Matches

    Hello Everyone,
    I have a question about matches for mtDNA and would appreciate any comments on the odd match results. My father is H11a, and has a match of U5a1a1-T152C!

    Welcome to the forum. Your father's H11a came from his mother. Any relative from a different mother line will have a different mtDNA haplogroup, unless by chance it's the same.

    What website are you using to generate matches? If it's GEDmatch, then it's self reported. Maybe they put the T in the wrong column and it's supposed to be a YDNA haplogroup?

    You cannot be both T and U.

    Yes, that's very true, but then why would there be an mtDNA match? This is a match reported by ftDNA in the mtDNA matches module. I assume it would be the back mutation, except his dna does not show that back mutation.

    It's not a mtDNA match. It's an X chromosome match. Those are two different things. The X chromosome is number 23 but mtDNA is mitochondrial DNA - a different thing altogether.
