3.  Why do you want to join the Lost Colony project?


I would like my MTDNA to help further the research.



4.  How is your mitochondrial DNA line connected to the colonists, the surnames, Native people or the location? 

While it is true I descend from all the ancient surnames of Eastern NC, the paper trail is all on my grandmothers paternal side. Going strictly on MTDNA, I only have Jones, Douglass, Hamilton, Carawan. The earliest being born 1844. All of Hyde County, NC. They lived side by side with all the other ancient families there, but I donít have a MTDNA paper trail any further back.


5.  Please provide a brief writeup (2 paragraphs to one page in length) on your line!  Everyone on my motherís side came from Hyde County, NC
