I had this new (at least) 3rd cousin match. He is a somali benadiri from the shashi clan like me and we are autosomally almost identical. However is Mt (and Y G2a) haplogroup suprised me.

What is H14a current know distribution? orgin etc.

Thank you.

edit: Just found out that we are possibly maternally related, so I might be H14a aswell.

H14a: found mostly in the Levant, Kurdistan, Iran, but also in Bulgaria, Greece, Italy, the Czech Republic, Scotland and Ireland / found in Sumerian Syria

And since this is likely the G2a chap

The G2a branch expanded to Anatolia, the Caucasus and Europe, while G2b diffused from Iran across the Fertile Crescent and east to Pakistan. It is now found mostly among Lebanese and Jewish people, but also at low frequency in the Arabian peninsula, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
