R30b is a branch of R30. It is defined by 24 coding and control region mutations according to Chaubey et. al. 2008. The same paper reports samples with this haplogroup in Punjab.
My 23andme analysis shows this as mtDNA ancestory. Would love to know other members with similar results. Please post any insight into the prevalence of this haplogroup and defining mutations info.

"Using birth, marriage and death records, he said researchers traced two of Eliza's living direct descendants, who are both third cousins of Princess Diana's mother, Frances Shand Kydd, and tested samples of their saliva.
Using other genetic tests to corroborate the findings, they also discovered that the two direct descendants were around 0.3% and 0.8% South Asian. The rest of their DNA was of European origin."

"Getting back to Prince William, it seems that he has not personally provided a DNA sample, but instead we are able to infer his mitochondrial DNA result with reasonable certainty from the results of two of his maternal relatives. Through a process of triangulation, these samples can be used to determine the type of mitochondrial DNA carried by Eliza Kewark. The results of these tests appear unequivocal: the two people tested both carry a rare type of mitochondrial DNA called R30b, which has previously only been found in India and Nepal. The Times story states that other genetic markers found in the genomes of the DNA donors also provide evidence for south Asian ancestry. Thus it seems that Eliza Kewark was likely to have Indian maternal ancestry, even if her paternal lineage was Armenian."

I read she lived in Surat, Gujrat. So far I have read R30b reported in Punjab, Nepal, Afghanistan and Gujrat. Vedda people of SriLanka also have this haplogroup.

Compiled list of ancient samples positive for R30b mitochondrial haplogroup available on the online data visualizer from David Reich's lab: https://public.tableau.com/profile/vagheesh#!/vizhome/TheFormationofHumanPopulationsinSouthandCentralAsi a/AncientDNA

https://anthrogenica.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=42992&d=1612141100

Some other samples have been listed to compare autosomal admixture estimates, they do not necessarily represent actual ancestry. Earliest R30b appears in Shahr-i-Sokhta-BA1 cluster. Earliest R30a appears in SPGT samples from Swat Valley, Pakistan. R7 appears in Shahr-i-Sokhta-BA2 cluster. H1a and L1a are the Y chromosomal Haplogroup present in these samples. As always please point out any mistakes that may have occurred.

The following paper characterizes, "Complete Mitochondrial DNA Diversity in Iranians."
https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0080673#pone.0080673.s005

"The sample consisted of 352 unrelated individuals from 25 Iranian provinces and belonging to 13 different ethnic groups (in parentheses): 2 from Ardabil (Azeris), 13 from Isfahan (9 Persians, 4 Armenians), 8 from Khuzestan (6 Persians, 1 Bakhtiari, 1 Armenian), 6 from Mazandaran (3 Mazandaranis, 2 Persians, 1 Gilak), 1 from Alborz (Persian), 2 from Bushehr (Persians), 15 from East Azarbaijan (14 Azeris, 1 Armenian), 1 from West Azerbaijan (Azeri), 119 from Fars (9 Persians, 110 Qashqais), 7 from Gilan (5 Persians, 1 Azeri, 1 Gilak), 5 from Golestan (3 Persians, 2 Turkmens), 1 from Hamadan (Khalaj), 1 from Ilam (Lur), 101 from Kerman (Persians),4 from Kermanshah (3 Persians, 1 Kurd), 2 from Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad (Lurs), 1 from Kurdistan (Kurd), 4 from Luristan (2 Lurs, 1 Persian, 1 Bakhtiari), 9 from Markazi (7 Persians, 1 Armenian, 1 Khalaj), 2 from North Khorasan (1 Persian, 1 Khorosani), 3 from Qazvin (Persians), 15 from Razavi Khorasan (3 Khorosani, 1 Kurd, 11 Persians), 1 from Sistan and Baluchestan (Persian), 27 from Tehran (1 Mazandarani, 3 Armenians, 3 Azeris, 1 Indian, 19 Persians), 1 from Yazd (Persian), and 1 from Zanjan (Azeri).

"The South Asian influence mainly represented by haplogroups M2, M3, M4, M5, M18, M42, R5, R8, R30, and the two sister clades U2c and U2d are more pronounced in Persians (9.9%) than in Qashqais (1.8%). As expected, all Indian-specific mtDNAs in Iran originate from the southern provinces of the country (Table S1). The same observation is true for the African-specific lineages, represented by haplogroups L2a, L3d, L3e, L3f and L5c, found in Persians and Qashqais with similar frequencies of 2.2% and 2.7%, respectively."

Table S1 lists 2 of the Persians from Bam, Kerman have mt Haplogroup R30a.

Earliest R30 as reported earlier seems to be from Siestan, Iran in Shahr-i-Sokhta-BA1 cluster. Earliest R30a in Iron Age, Swat Valley. As stated by Chubey and colleagues in "Phylogeography of mtDNA haplogroup R7 in the Indian peninsula,"
"Coalescent estimates suggest an ancient branching pattern in hgs R30 and R31, dating back almost to the earliest diversification of the superhaplogroup R itself. This most probably occurred soon after the out of Africa dispersals into the Indian subcontinent."

This study by Rakha et al highlights the mitochondrial Haplogroup diversity among Kashmiris of AKJ among them R30b.
https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/27591488/
Abstract

The mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) control region (nucleotide position 16024-576) sequences were generated through Sanger sequencing method for 317 self-identified Kashmiris from all districts of Azad Jammu & Kashmir Pakistan. The population sample set showed a total of 251 haplotypes, with a relatively high haplotype diversity (0.9977) and a low random match probability (0.54%). The containing matrilineal lineages belonging to three different phylogeographic origins of Western Eurasian (48.9%), South Asian (47.0%) and East Asian (4.1%). The present study was compared to previous data from Pakistan and other worldwide populations (Central Asia, Western Asia, and East & Southeast Asia). The dataset is made available through EMPOP under accession number EMP00679 and will serve as an mtDNA reference database in forensic casework in Pakistan.

"Blood samples were collected from 317 unrelated Kashmiri males and females residing in different parts of Azad Jammu & Kashmir, Pakistan (Fig. 1).
Only individuals with self-reported Kashmiri origin of at least two generations back on the maternal side were included. Written informed consent was obtained from all the volunteer donors. In order to have full representation, samples were collected from different towns and cities of Azad Jammu & Kashmir. Personal information was treated anonymously. In addition, sample collection was conducted in accordance with the Institutional Review Board of University of Health Sciences, Lahore."

19 of the 317 samples were identified to be carrying SNPs for R Haplogroup among them
R = 4
R30a1b =1
R30b1 =7
R30b2 =3
R6 =3
R6b= 1
