View Full Version : U5a2e + 16234T = U5a2e*?

09-26-2016, 09:51 PM
Hi all,

Just got my results today from 23andMe but I've been doing a ton of research into what I could dig out via the tools out there.

It's been interesting to look at my mtDNA, mthap output below. U5a2e was by far the best looking match to me.

I haven't been able to find much info for U5a2e at all, let alone an extra subgroup possibility with 16234T. My maternal line is very foggy and we don't really know much about anything past my grandmother, who was either from central Poland, or from somewhere nearish the current Poland-Ukraine border (I've heard conflicting stories). She certainly spoke Ukrainian, and her maiden name was Chilczuk.

I would be very interested to help out research and/or shed some light on the mystery of my maternal ancestry, so if anyone has any pointers or ideas or things I should read, I'd love to know.

Thanks very much,

We have 11 full sequence samples of U5a2e with 16234T. Most people in this group also have 1 or 2 extra coding region mutations, so testing the full mtDNA sequence could be useful. People in this group are from Italy, Germany, Poland, Austria, Slovenia, Czech, Belarus. The common maternal ancestor for this group probably lived about 6000 years ago.
