This group does not have any discussions yet.
I'm K1a1b2a. I can trace my mtDNA to Kassel, Germany in the mid-1800s.
Betty Christensen, my maternal line is K1a4a1a, but I do not know where the line originated. There doesn't see to be very many of us. I tested through National Geographic's Geno 2.0, and ordered FtDNA's MtDNA Plus test.
My paternal line is in in the MAV11 clade of haplogroup I1.
I have mtDNA haplogroup K and and just K. I made my DNA test at Sorenson.Does anyone know anything more about just K?
just found out my maternal line is k1a4a1 ... my mother immigrated to the US from Holland in 1950. 3 of her sisters are professional genalogists, specializing in Dutch research and they have done many generations of their family lines. It will be interesting to trace the maternal line back following their research.
Anyone else with K1a1b1b results? Trying to trace the origin of this mutation. Current working hypothesis is that the Vikings picked up a Semetic woman somewhere around the Caspian Sea and brought her to Scandanavia. The mutation probably happened there. Later female descendents were brought to Viking settlements around Scotland. Any thoughts on this hypothesis?
Also wanted to mention that I took Ugo's webinar on "The Power of DNA in Unlocking Family Relationships" - it was very helpful! I suggest that you all look for webinars on-line. They are very good and quite frequent! The best thing about them is that you can attend in your jammies at night - if you work during the day as I do!
I am a K1a10a - also part of Bill Hurst's group. Have done all the mtDNA testing that I can at present, but at the FGS Conference in Birmingham last week I decided to do Family Finder. Then if I can only get my brothers to test their YDNA - maybe Christmas presents this year for one of them will be a testing kit.
I tested my mtDNA because I am stuck on my mother's mother's mother's mother - my mother was Lillan Foote Hanlon, my grandmother was Mary Alice Sullivan Foote, my great grandmother was Leona Pence Sullivan and my great-great grandmother was either Elizabeth or Eathelbert or both...I have no last name and have been working on it for years. Leona was born in TN (all my mother's line is from the south) but I have not a clue about Elizabeth. That is my major brick wall.
I was wondering if anyone has ties to either North or South Carolina? That is last known place of my maternal gr grandmother and I am looking for clues. Thanks.
Hi, i'm new to genealogy, and i am K2A I am adopted and don't know anything about my family so I am using DNA to help me find some sort of closure as to the mystery of where the heck i came from!
