My mtDNA line is my mother, her mum Nancy (my Grandma), Nancy's mum Pauline etc. Aunt Elizabeth will have my Nanna's mtDNA from her female line. It occurred to me a few minutes ago that I am actually at a brick wall here, so I thought I would introduce you all to my Aunt Elizabeth's female ancestral line.
|My Nanna, Eunice Hazel Dyer, 2011.|
2. Eunice Hazel Dyer
B: 3 May 1916, Bowraville, New South Wales (NSW), Australia
D: 4 June 2012, Sydney, NSW Australia
3. Eva Florence Mackay (Great Grandmother)

|2x Great Grandmother|
Elizabeth Lucilla Gill
|Great Grandmother |
Eva Florence Mackay, 1913
4. Elizabeth Lucilla Gill (2x Great Grandmother)

5. Alice J Wright (3x Great Grandmother)

|3x Great Grandmother, Alice J Wright|
6. Elizabeth Graham (4x Great Grandmother)

Elizabeth Graham was a convict and sent to Australia in 1833 for stealing spoons when she was 18.
Who were her parents? Where in England was her family from?
I'm hoping my Aunt Elizabeth's mtDNA will give me some clues.
