And, like A.M. Yost, I'm a K1a4a1 as well. Can trace maternal ancestor to Austria-Hungary at end of 18th century.

I'm K1a4a1 per FTDNA. Can trace maternal ancester only as far as Germany in the 1800's.

Otzi is GenBank Accession Number EU810403. His closest match is EU073969, a member of my family.

The image representing the group is the famous mummy found in the Alps and know as Otzi... He is probably the most famous member of mtDNA haplogroup K to date. His complete mtDNA sequence was published for the first time in the November 11, 2008 issue of Current Biology.

My full mtDNA genome sequence puts me in a Haplogroup of K1a1a1. My maternal line as far back as I currently have it is England in abt 1809.

I had it done first at FamilyTree DNA and then at 23andme. I don't remember if I submitted it to GenBank or not. How do you go about doing that? Our son paid for both my husband and I, and we don't really understand much about it. I have been doing genealogy since I was a child. The earliest person I have on my maternal line is Elizabeth Griggs born abt 1720 probably in Virginia. Other maternal lines that I know of beyond the USA go into England.

I have tested my HVR1 and HVR2 mt DNA thru FTDNA and have posted the results at the K group and at mtsearch. I am K2a.

Welcome to the group Patricia. Where did you have your complete (full) mtDNA sequence done? Did you submit it to GenBank or are you the only one to have these data? What is the origin (as far as you know it genealogically) of your maternal line? Mine stops quite early in Italy.
