I think I did do full sequence. I have a bunch of other numbers too but FT DNA doesn't go into a lot of detail and I have no idea how or if I can put it into GEDMATCH
That isn't what I'm finding see below.

"L3e - West-Central Africa. It is the most common L3 sub-clade in Bantu-speaking populations.[15] L3e is suggested to be associated with a Central African origin and is also the most common L3 subclade amongst African Americans, Afro-Brazilians and Caribbeans[16]"

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haplogroup_L3_(mtDNA)

If any of your matches list origins to African countries post them a pattern may show up from there you can possibly narrow it down. The populations that were sources of providing West Africans to the Americas are documented.

Do you know of a list to look up
HVR1 DIFFERENCES FROM RSRS
HVR2 DIFFERENCES FROM RSRS
and
CODING REGION DIFFERENCES FROM RSRS?
and find out what the codes mean?

Sorry for the caps, I did a copy/paste from the website
I've googled some of the Extra Mutations and so far have found three of the seven listed on a Jewish Geneology page.

If anyone knows of an easier way to do this, I am open to suggestions.

Did you test your MtDNA with Family Tree DNA?

Yes, but I don't think I can upload it to gedmatch.

No you can't you can only upload to Gedmatch if you have taken the family finder test and have received the results.

On your FTDNA dashboard page under mtDNA if you click ancestral origins your matches that have listed their origins will come up, those listed under HVR1, HVR2 and coding regions matches are your closest matches.

Thank you for your help. I keep putting those HVR1 and 2 numbers in and the pages that come up are mostly on Jewish Genealogy. I joined a group on FTDNA for other people trying to find information on the same thing.

Sub-Saharan mtDNA lineages are found in Sephardic, Ashenazi, and Mizrahi Jewish populations although they are not common. What is your country of birth?
