"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.
"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…"
"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…"
Ugo, Thank you for confirming the C1b portion of my DNA testing 2nd Segment. These are the other numbers you asked for from the 1st Segment of testing that was done by the National Geographic Genome Project. 16223T, 16298C, 16325C, 16327T, and 16519C. It seems that most people I match up with are from Puerto Rico, or 1 from Venezuela and 1 in China. Is this rare or not too many tested? Thanks for your help, Marilyn
I first had the HVR1 testing done with the National Geographic Genome Project. I knew I my maternal grandmother was all Ojibwa from Sault St. Marie, MI and Garden River Canada. So the testing just proved that to me. Then I added the HVR2 done through Family Tree/Mito search. The HVR2 results are 73G, 249-, 263G, 290-, 291-, 489C, 493G, 522-, 523- I'm adopted and have some information about my birth mother and her family. She was deceased by the time I opened my records. I got to meet an aunt once before she died and I have a half sister and two half brothers; I have met one but not the other. So I have very little info about my birth mother and none about my birth father and probably never will. Any help would be appreciated.
Ugo - unfortunately I haven't had my full mtDNA yet, although I plan to do so within the next year or so. Once I do, I will be sure to contact you with the information.
Being Haplogroup A2 was a complete surprise; I was expecting H. My maternal line ends somewhere in the Caribbean, so I guess I should have been more prepared for it! My maternal grandmother was born on a group of islands (the Bay Islands) off the coast of Honduras, and her maternal line was all English, or so I thought. The results haven't helped me break through the brick wall yet (not a single match anywhere), but they have provided an insight into the possibilities.
