mtDNA Haplogroups H and HV are Eurasian Haplogroups which likely arose in between West Asia and Central Asia. Branches of H and HV migrated into Europe where H became the dominant maternal lineage while HV remained a much smaller population. H is believed to make up 40-50% of the mtDNA lineages in Western Europe. Much of the research of Human mtDNA only compares mutations in the HVR1 and HVR2 control regions, a smaller but more rapidly changing portion of the mtDNA molecule, which provides a false feeling of sameness to the members of the many subgroups, or clades.
The primary goal of this project is to explore the individual identity of each subclade. We are working to:
- Educate members of this highly successful mtDNA Clade about their shared heritage.
- Build a sense of community.
- Recognize population clusters in the Clade and Subclades.
Altogether, the project has more than 5,000 participants, making it the largest public mtDNA Haplogroup project. We are working together to understand the dynamics of a lineage that has its oldest branches in Central Asia, the Indian subcontinent, and across Northern Africa yet has a large population from the Iberian peninsula up to Scandinavia.

The main project is meant to be the home of all who have tested as Hs, HVs, or any subclade. Here we sort project members by their branch/sub branch polymorphism sub branch motifs. This places your results beside those project members who are most likely to share ancestry with you in the genealogical time frame. There are also special sub project areas
for those who have taken the full Mitochondrial DNA sequence test (commonly called FMS). These are dedicated to the discovering of new subclades and mapping geographic migration patterns. When you receive your FMS results you are added to the appropriate subgroup by a member of the project team. Please do maintain your membership in the main project
, H&HV Project, as this allows us to track your membership.

The Project is open to all who have tested at Family Tree DNA or one of their affiliates.
The coding region results can be used to identify your lowest level subclade and any close matches in the H & HV Projects, to estimate the age and origins of each subclade, and to identify new subclades
in the H & HV Phylogeny tree
If you make your coding region data visible to administrators your privacy is protected at all times. The coding region results are not shown on the project webpage and will not be made public, and by default
they are also hidden from the project administrators.
To share your coding region results with the project administrators, you can:
log into your FTDNA account, click on the tab "My Account" and select "Results Display Settings".
Check the circle next to “Yes” for " Show My mtDNA Coding Region Mutations to Administrators of these Projects.
You can just select the one to the H & HV project or to all the other projects you maybe in.
Then, on the right hand side of the “Results Display Settings” choose “ Project Administrators Settings” –select “limited” .
Add the information for your maternal ancestor --this is always a woman, if known.
Add the geographic coordinates for your maternal ancestor.
