According to jameslick.com, my mtDNA is U8b1a2b.
WeGene says U8b1a2

Anyone have information about my Haplogroup?

I found this site that has some public matches, it listed Greece, Ashkenazi, Poland, and ancient Armenian.

Between U8b1a2 and U8b1a2b, it seems to found around east of the Mediterranean and Algeria. Could it have spread by the Phoenicians? Or possibly Romans or ancient Philistines?

My wife is U8b (old test, so she could have mutations downstream from U8b), she is Turkish..

Thanks. More East Med. What part of Turkey is she from?
Have you tried to upload her raw data to the mtDNA predictor below?

It's been a while since I ran it (gave her only U8b before), but funny enough, she comes out as U8b1a2b ;) She has ancestry from SW and central Turkey.. I suspect she has some Armenian and Greek/Italian roots, as well as some Sephardic roots further back..

I've tried to send a PM to the author, and I am not allowed to do that either. Need 8..7 more posts. F*k it, Anthrogenica policies have been changed.
If you like to know resouces I collected on u8b, contact me tvaryna at g/mail.

I decided to test full mtDNA full sequence with FTDNA and confirmed U8b1a2b

Got a match from Greece on FTDNA.
I uploaded to yfull and got a match from Greece, Poland, and Armenia

I think the origin is Levantine.
