Would like views on this please. My Maternal side is Tuscan, and is traced En Situ in Tuscany to about the early 15th Century. 23andme told me my mtdna Haplogroup is J2a, and later Tools showed me to be J2a1. I've had it further analyzed from there. I'm absolutely J2a1 with none of the further Mutations that typically characterize other areas where J2a1 is found, like northern and central Europe. Thus its an extremely original and archaic J2a1 that I have, and the consensus is that J2a1 arose in Europe about 16,500 ybp. Now, interestingly, my closest mtdna lookalike by my Sequencing, although definitely not identical, is to another archaic-looking J2a1, but an Irish person tested in Ireland in 2012. Any thoughts much appreciated.
