    M13 MTDNA

    I belong to Assam in Northeast India. My MTDNA haplogroup has been identified as M13C. I am curious to know if there are others with the same MTDNA. My Y DNA haplotype is R-Z94 which is Indo-European while MTDNA is East Asian

    Are you an ethnic Ahom? I would have thought Ahom Y-DNA would show more relation northeastwards than northwestwards . Unless you're Brahmin from a gotra coming from that direction. Most Bengali Brahmins descend from 5 Brahmin families of Kannauj invited by the Sena dynasty of Bengal+Bihar region at the time to conduct Vedic rites 1000 ybp.
    Your mtdna does point to a more eastern origin beyond the Himalayas, thus indicating Ahom migrations.

    Anyway welcome here. There's a couple of Bengalis here. I forget his username right now but he's Sylheti. I'm from Kolkata and ancestral home is in the suburbs of it for centuries. You are probably the only Assamese we have had.

    Welcome jortita!

    As mentioned, not many Bengalis let alone Assamese here on the forum so pleasure to have you here. My family are from Sylhet originally.

    Redifflal, are there any specific y-dna subclades associated with those Bengali Brahmins? Which haplotypes do you think the original Ahom might have carried?

    I am mixed race as my Geno 2.0 ancestry affiliations show and am waiting for FTDNA results. My ancestry affiliations are shown as South Asia 42%, Central Asia - 26%, Southeast Asia - 20%, East Asia - 5%, Siberia and Finland -4%, North Africa - 2%. In my case Indo European men married Mongoloid women.

    This includes Ahom and Bodo Kachari. I analysed the Y DNA synapse and genetic markers and found significant traces of O1, O2 and O3 as well as other East and North Asian genetic markers, including Haplogroupd C, D, N, K, S, P, Q in addition to indo European markers.

    I am not Brahmin but Kalita which is not really a caste even though recently identify themselves as Kayasth. In fact my ancestors were officers in the Ahom army.

    Would urge you to read this they which shows that there is little difference between the various communities in Assam due to mixing,https://www.google.co.th/url?sa=t&so...q8Ds7i4yn2nG1Q

    This article by the famous Assamese historian Yasmin Saikia is also interesting that it shows that Ahom was a social order and not a race and most indigenous upper Assam dwellers have Dai admixture,https://www.google.co.th/url?sa=t&so...SJJbgHBtvyTLfw

    I would really appreciate if you could let me know whether there is much of a difference between R1a1a and R1a1 and it seems my Y DNA haplogroup is R1a1
