I am K1a4a1a, not sure what all that means. Any input would be welcome.

I had my sister-in-law's mtDNA done.  She is a K (don't know the subclade).  Her mother's line goes back to Ireland via Canada.

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.

I just got my DNA results back. My maternal line is K1c2. Her family is from the Duncans and huddlestons and mostly coming from Scotland and England. Anyone else?

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!
