"This hypotheses is based on the mitochondria in the ovum (sperm have no mitochondria), hence a method of tracking through the female line. But I'll have to look that up."

Correct.

I've had my DNA checked and my mtDNA is 'V' and my yDNA is R1b. The 'V' is rare and indicates that I'm related to the Sami (reindeer herders) of the Kola peninsular and the R1b (my particular kind), indicates that I'm Norweigen.

My dad's mother (Mrs Smith) is related to Cheddar Man.
