Hi, my mtDNA haplogroup is H2a2a. At one point it was H2a2 and then H2a2a1. Currently, my halplogroup has changed to H2a2a. What does this all mean? I’d like to know more about the background, lineage of this group and, in general, more about where this haplogroup is concentrated and what it means. All “matches” have 0 distances (I don’t quite understand what that means either). I’m in the US but my mothers side supposedly immigrated from Wales sometime in the late 1800s (at least that is what my grandmother had told me years ago) but her sister (my great-aunt) had also mentioned there’s Danish and/or other Scandinavian on the maternal side from way back as well but unsure if that’s true or not. Any help or information would be fantastic!

Have you tried YFull? I managed to move my group a step further through YFull.

H2a2 seems very common in Nortwest and Estern Europe. I am a lonesome H2a2 from Sicily.

"0" means that those persons have exactly the same mutation you have. If you look at your Matches map you can see where your matches has placed their oldest known maternal ancestor, if they have filled it in correctly. The "naming" of a mutation can change as more are discovered about all this. If your 0 matches are scattered it might mean that your mutation is an old one: women with this mutation have had a chance to move around with it in the world so to speak, if it is more concetrated to one specific area it was probably "founded" there or there where a clan of very successful women living there with lots of daughters :).

Any h2a2 from Italy?

Richard, I just received my mT results on 23 May, so am still trying to figure out what it all means. But the results say H2a. I’m assuming that means nothing downstream, so H2a is my final haplogroup??? My grandmother was Josephine Florence Terrasi. Her parents were Francesco (Frank) Terrasi and Concetta (Constance) Liberto. The info I have been able to glean so far is that Frank was from Parco (Altofonte), Sicily. Concetta was also from Sicily, but I don’t yet know where exactly. What part of Sicily are you from? And are you in the Sicily project or the Sicilian project? I’ve asked to join both, but it still says pending.

Debi, I was tested with Living DNA company and they assigned me H2a2. I am new to FTDNA and I just ordered a BIG Y regarding my paternal side. Perhaps next step will be taking another for my MtDNA.

My mom is from Palermo but her mother was from Casteltermini (Agrigento). Her grandmother was from Joppolo Giancaxio (Agrigento) and her great grandmother from Aragona (Agrigento). As I know the female line of my mom was all from Agrigento and nearby.

I don't know of any other person with H2 from Sicily, so you are the second person after me. I am trying to find more people. Most of H2a2 seems to be have Northwest and Eastern Europe ancestry.

Can someone explain why I, and some others, have the letters CRS in the HVR1 Mutations column and others have numbers, please? TYIA

Dear friends and cousins, thanks to your support and to your curiosity, my paper reached those who take decisions regarding research in anthropological, archaeological, historical and genetical fields in most advanced countries on that topic. It has changed the course of events, it has disrupted mainstream and dominent visions, sometimes forced to stop some hypocrit or out of date concensuses. It has surely demonstrated that History and Genetics are compatible and that they belong to all of us and in the same time to each of us, because each lineage has its own history to be told. Thanks you for your attention, I am grateful. Thank you, Marc. https://www.academia.edu/32284957/EDDA_Part_1_How_Women_from_Lesser_Caucasus_H2a1_MtDNA_have_recorded_and_transmitted_the_most_ancient_and_longest_lasting_Human_Testimony

Marc, I am from Iran and my mtDNA is H2a2. Read your article with great interest. Thank you for your work. Very interesting insight. Do you happen to know where I can get more info. on H2a2 subclad? Thanks.

Hi, if you have uploaded your mtDNA results recently they have been subgrouped today. Robert

Question: my haplogroup is H2a1, my father's is H1m1. I manage both. I tried to upload to Y-Full and it correctly assigned my Y results (same as Dad's of course, but I didn't run his) but assigned me his mtDNA results instead of my own. Does anyone know how I can change this?

Hello I am new to posing to this group. My haplo group I recently learned is H2a2b. I was wanting to know more information about this group. All my maternal family are from The Netherlands. Are any others here with the same haplo group?

Lora Robbins dotter and son surnames are very common in Sweden.

Dotter and son sen are scandinavian. The Icelanders are basicall the only vikings that stll use Dotter, sone faris islanders too. son is generally Swedish and sen is generally Danish and Norweigen.

In Sweden most names that ends with "son" has been like a usual surnames for a couple of generation, but there are some that has kept the family tradition too, like my friend named Stigsdotter, her fathers names are Stig Gunnarsson, so that family have honored the old way of naming. My family left that way of naming the next generation behind sometimes around 1870-1890 on both my mothers and my fathers side of the family.

Hello Doreen! I am also H2a2b! I am just starting on my maternal ancestry so I don't have a lot of information as of yet.

My H2a1a apparently got a new branch in the YFull mt-tree. The new one is H2a1a-a4. It is worth sending the data over to YFull as it is cheap and provides new algorithms. It is still a fairly old Hg, but progres appreciated. I have just two matches on the same branch at YFull. The FTDNA H2a1a has 25 matches.

Oma äitilinja YFullissa muuttui. H2a1 muuttui H2a1o:si, joka on jo vähän lähempänä nykyaikaa, ajoitettu 1200 vuotta sitten?

Hi all - on jameslick dna, they matched my haplogroup to both H and H2. On FTDNA I am an H only, therefore I'm a bit confused, why not putting me in H2 on here as the jameslick tool did, since H2 is a narrower cluster than H? Many thanks

After taking mtDNA test from FTDNA, I found out my mother's side of family is H2a2a1. However, I have no idea what that means. Nor do I understand how to interpret the 24+ pages of names that are connected to my H2a2a1. Is there a book I can buy to help me understand what's going on?

There is book about genetic genealogy "The Family Tree Guide to DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy" from Blaine T. Bettinger. It covers autosomal (FTDNA's Family Finder), Y-DNA and mtDNA, but I haven't read the part about mtDNA in details yet.

The exact match to your H2a2a1 maternal line is the most relevant. I suggest contacting those matches first to compare family trees.

I'm H2a2a1 with zero 0 distance matches. I have a few 1's and 2's and then pages of distant matches. Do any of you have 0 distance matches?
