Understanding DNA results is very important to understanding who you are, your origins, and how you came to be. The results below do not tell the whole story but is the beginning.  H1b1 or H1b1A is not the complete picture. There are more numbers trailing these numbers and letter.

H1 & H3

Haplogroup H1 is by far the most common subclade in Europe, representing approximately than half of the H lineages in Western Europe. Roostalu et al. (2006) estimate that H1 arose around 22,500 years ago. H1 is divided in 65 basal subclades. The largest, H1c, has over 20 more basal subclades of its own, most with deeper ramifications. H1 is found throughout Europe, North Africa, the Levant, Anatolia, the Caucasus, and as far as Central Asia and Siberia. The highest frequencies of H1 are observed in the Iberian peninsula, south-west France, and Sardinia. H3 has a very similar distribution to H1, but more confined to Europe and the Maghreb, and is generally two to three times less common than H1.

Distribution of mtDNA haplogroups H1 & H3 in Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East. African is the home of humanoids.

Does anyone know where the origin of my MtDNA is found: H1b1-T16362C according to FamilyTreeDNA, but H1b1A, according to Genographic Project of 2013. Which would be the correct haplogroup, Family Tree or Genographic Project? How old is this mtDNA type? And in what country or geographic region is this my mtDNA found in the highest numbers? Thanks for any info.

Anne Hart Thanks. What are the website links to these sites?

Per Söderlund What mtDNA test did you take at FTDNA?




Anne Hart I took whatever they had at FTDNA in 2010. My grandson took the 23 and me test and he has inherited my mtDNA from his mom, my daughter.

Per Söderlund I have looked at Ian Logans page and can see that H1b1-T16362C is a out bracke of the old H1b1 and H!b1a is a other. I have not checked this but due to that H1b1-T16362C is a new name it is probebly the new brackout form the haplogroup.

GenBank by Haplogroup



Duke B Montgomery H1b1-T16362C: your haplogroup is H1b1 and the mutation is T16362C. This commonly found in Romania I think. There are a lot of DNA relatives with the same mutation. There should be more numbers associated with H1b1_ _ _ _ to further describe your origins.
