    mtDNA N1'5

    My mtDNA haplogroup result is N1'5 and I'm slightly baffled and intrigued by what this means. Most of known ancestry is very rooted in a small area of eastern England. My Y-DNA is an easier to explain/understand I1a1b1. I'm struggling to find much information about N1'5 or what it might mean...

    12% of al-Andalus women are non-Spanish

    The moors seem to have brought very few women, and among those it's mostly slaves. This could be due to the locations, maybe if there are palaces slaves are overrepresented...

    European mixture dominates in Latin America

    Haplogroups C and D dominate among certain areas of Latin America. But those are the places where there were never Amerindian civizations: the Amazon, N.Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia, Chile... In all of those places there's an extra of Spanish ancestry. While those descendent from N(Hp A)...

    Rivers essential for humanity/civilization?

    The importance of rivers for the appearance of the first civilizations, that were based primarily in the mastering of an agricultural economy, is a common topic in general culture. The reasons are obvious:abundance of water, therefore food, easy transport and the bigger nets of population that...

    Maciamo calls U2 "rare" and "ancient", with low numbers spread thinly across Europe, with ancient samples dating back to the Cro-Magnons, etc. U2e is "found in most of Europe and Central Asia / found in Mesolithic Germany and Russia, in Chalcolithic Russia, in the Andronovo culture, among the...

    Macro-haplogroup R and her subclades

    Among Eurasians (whose ancestral descendants include Oceanians and Amerindians), apart from M, most people descend from branches of mitochondrial macrohaplogroup R. 1) We don't know why that is. Maybe they have superadvantageous mutations in their DNA that gave them special human...

    Does anyone else have just haplogroup U4a?

    I took a dna test and it said that my haplogroup is U4a. Does anyone else have this haplogroup? What is your known ancestry if you do? Thank you

    Mtdna L3e2b

    Hi I’m new here. I’ve been working on several branches of our family tree. I hit a brick wall on my maternal and paternal sides at about 1800. So I decided to have my dna tested. My dna results from two different companies show that I’m 69.3%. I’m trying to figure how to used my mtdna...

    mtDNA R1b

    I have mtDNA R1b (full sequence from FTDNA, checked with Any information about mtDNA R1b? There appears to be even less information than R1a... My maternal ancestor is from Finland and there is a cluster of R1b in the southern half of Finland. Thanks! :cool-v:

    mtDNA M

    First off, hello everyone! I would like to start a discussion about the M haplogroup as my first post. Just learned my mtDNA is M5a, but I can barely find information about M itself so I thought we might need a thread on it first. I will try to update this post whenever I find more information...

    Lombard vs Roman Y-DNA and mtDNA from northern Italy and Hungary

    The study on Lombard DNA by Amorim et al. (2018) was already discussed a few months ago as part of a preliminary paper, but did not yet include the Y-DNA and mtDNA tables. This is still a pre-print, but at least we can see what haplogroups the Lombards carried. The admixtures for each sample...

    Retracing Agnes of Antioch's mtDNA lineage (haplogroup H1)

    Olasz et al. (2018) tested the DNA of King Bela III of Hungary. They also tested the mtDNA lineage of his wife, Agnes of Antioch, which was identified as H1 (either H1j8 or H1bz). We can trace her mtDNA through her matrilineal ancestors, then go down again on the daughter lines. Agnes of...
