My mtDNA is U2. My Grandmother was born in Holland. Most of her family is from Friesland in particular (Farmers). Her family finder results (through Family Tree DNA- My Origins) is mostly Scandinavian. This is her maternal line.
My mom and I were born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Nan is a Hoogland - She was born 1926 in Amsterdam, Netherlands
Annetta van der Mee - b. 1900 in Leiden, Netherlands
Aafke Bijlsma - b. 1871 Grouw, Friesland, Netherlands
Aafke (Jelgers) Bijlma - b. 1841 Grouw, Friesland, Netherlands
Yfkje (Tjallings) Hoekstra - b.1807 Menaldum, Friesland, Netherlands
Grietje Thomas (Zondervan)- b.1774 Netherlands
Any other U2's out there with a Dutch background?
I am a beginner with researching my family information. My son did a DNA test because we know so little about our family ancestry. Apparently I am U5b2a2. Now I want to find out just what that means.
I found That I come from the Ursula Clan. One of the seven daughters.
And also with the subgroup R found in Cheddar Man. Still checking this out.
I live in Pennsylvania. I am 99.4 % European
0.2% Middle Eastern & North African
0.4 % unassigned
Some of my maternal line surnames are : Miller , Wells ,O'Conner , Hoison ,Winder , Clark, Clarke ,Lightfoot , Downs ,Parschell
My maternal line is a subgroup - U5b2a2
Haplogroup - U5
Subgroup - R
mtDNA ancestors: Lillamae Younger, Stella Brown McKissick, Lilly Barry, Mary Wingfield Claybrook, Narcissa Nance, Mary Willingham, Mary Johnson, Mary unk.
I've been thrilled that I could go back that far to my sixth gt. grandmother. :-) Still researching. So many Marys; so little time. :-)
My haplotype is U5b2a1a1a. On gedmatch #290151. Last known MTDNA ancestor is Sarah Blackman/Blackmon Wayne Co, (earlier Dobbs) North Carolina - now known as Goldsboro. The line from her is from Blackman>Alford> Carraway>Ford> Wilson> Hooks> Land.
Hi, I just got my mtDNA results back from ftDNA. I am in haplogroup U4a. I think I only had 4 or 5 other similar matches, but none of those matches were even in the same country as mine. My most distant ancestor is Mary Shooter, who was born around 1803, and died around 1873. She lived in Cradley, Herefordshire, UK. Her mother, though, is listed with only a partial name. I hope I can find more out about my ancestors
Hello! I am U5b1c. I am looking forward to learning more of my Haplogroup. Lingo to DNA testing. This is my 1st time. So I'm trying to learn.
