Nearly 'pure' W1
Hi all! I'm new to this forum and to using DNA to unlock genealogy information. My full myDNA results just came back and I am a W1. I copied my results and sent an email to Mark Wade at the thecid.com website last night. Here is what he told me:

"Your result is quite unique. You are nearly a 'pure' W1... Your lineage is unchanged from the original W1 around 15,000 years ago except for one mutation... The 16223t mutation (that most W's have) changed back to 16223c in your line. Other nearly-pure W1s (W1 with only one mutation) are known from the Baltic - North Sea area (Lithuania, Norway, England, Netherlands). What seems to have happened is that there as a small band of Siberian hunters that maintained the original W1 lineage (small population size = less likelihood of mutations over time). They migrated (among the ancestors of the Balts or Finns) to the Baltic coast near Lithuania around 4000 years ago, and then spread via sea routes to Scandinavia, the British Isles, and the Dutch coast.

Your result is unique so far. So no help there on origins. But most likely your ancestors came from England, given the North Carolina origin and result."

Below are my results. Would love to have more information on this if any of you have any! Thanks!
