    there's also this, a very recent mtDNA wiki, for mtDNA enthusiasts:
    http://mtdnawiki.com/t2/ -- a couple of other pages in the wiki could be useful too.
    If you are indulgent toward typos and don't mind the sales pitch, it could be an additional source of information.

Has been proposed that it is essentially an early Neolithic haplogroup that took refuge in the Near East during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) when it coalesced into a European specific mutation with innumerous sub branches/mutations. I researched my own mtdna (T2b3b); seems to be mostly Western European in origin.



    Here is a scholarly article detailing the distribution of T2b*:

    Aldric,

    Where did you find that tree chart of mtDNA group T? Are those samples that tested positive for said mutations? I'm in the T2b2b area - my MDKA for my mtDNA is from Ireland and T2b2b seems to be mostly Irish, Isles, and Scandinavian.

    Cheers,
    Charlie

    Nicole,

    I'm T2b2b - so hello from a fellow T member ;-). I've found that my particular group T2b2b seems to be (based on current samples and reported most-distant-known-ancestors) is most common in Ireland (which matches up with where my maternal line is from - from the Western parts), but also has a decent presence in Scandinavia. Also an interesting ancient sample we both match because she is positive for T2b - is the female "Viking warrior" skeleton from Birka, Sweden https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birka_...Viking_warrior

    I haven't had full sequence done yet - I got my mtDNA assignment through National Genographic Geno 2.0 test. It seems to me that the maternal haplogroups are so old and widespread (and they don't mutate nearly as often as Y-DNA - making your matches just that much older) that it is hard to narrow down origins. I know that they have found T2b in many ancient remains... from Pompei to many of the Bronze Age remains...

    How far have you traced your particular maternal line back? I have made it back to my 3rd Great Grandmother Bridget Dana born in Ireland, but I have been unable to find her parents. I am hoping that eventually when I get full sequence done... it nets me a slightly "closer" match with another tester with an Irish MDKA...

    For fun you could try looking up papers with ancient remains with samples of T2 and T2b... I recently was in the ancient DNA from Poland coming soon thread in the Ancient DNA area... and one of the recent posts from perhaps Roman era Poland had some T2b...

    For me I already had a very strong connection to Ireland through both my Mother's father's and mother's (maternal line). Her paternal Grandfather was 100% Irish and married a lady of Gaelic Irish and Scots Highlander/Hebrides descent from Ontario, Canada. My father's side also has plenty of Scots and Irish (sometimes Scots-Irish - Scots who settled in Northern Ireland before coming to America!)... my Mom has 2nd cousins in Ireland and 3rd cousins in the Scottish Highlands/Hebrides and I am planning on testing her autosomal per the FTDNA family finder test here soon :-)! For the record here is my autosomal map - I think I saw yours in the other thread - you are very Greek right? charlie.png

    Cheers,

    Charlie

    Aren't we T2b* ? The T2b-asterisks? (did you upload to GenBank? please do if you haven't)
