Thread: U7 in Native Northern Europeans

    U7 in Native Northern Europeans

    Does anyone else have maternal haplogroup U7 while still being 100% north Western European? My friend is British and scores 100 percent north Western European on 23andme his maternal haplogroup seems to be middle eastern or possibly south Asian does anyone else know of any more European subgroups of haplogroup U7? I'm getting him to take a test with livingDNA to hopefully narrow down his subgroup U7 seems rare in general is this assumption correct? I would love to find out more about it.

    my mother's mtdna (and mine) is U7a and according to ftdna U7 project we belong to the U7a* group 7 where the members are from Greece and Italy. According to the project's map there are a few U7 members from Finland, Holland, Germany, Luxembourg and one from Scotland.

    Could it be a legacy of the Alexander the Great's conquest of Persia?

    Not very likely. First off U7 has been found in ancient Central/Northern Europe. Iron Age individuals found in "princely burials" of the late Hallstatt Culture from Baden-Württemberg Germany, were found to possess U7. Haplogroup U7 was found in a woman (dated to around 834 CE) buried in a Viking Oseberg Ship in Norway; she was believed to have belonged to a royal clan. Human remains (dating to around 1000-1250 CE) in a christian cemetery located in Kongemarken Denmark, were also found to possess U7.

    My friend has recently had his maternal Haplogroup narrowed down to U7b which is apparently slightly more common among Europeans than other subclades but is still extremely rare.
