What is your Maternal Haplogroup

    So I wanted to dedicate a thread to Maternal Haplogroups and information on what they say about our mitochondrial health. I just did he 23and me and see that I am the below, V7.

    ....How do I translate this to what latitude my mitochondria might thrive in o any other information with my health? Any thoughts....what was your haplogroup and how did you use this information to improve your health?

    Maternal Haplogroup is V7:

    Origin and Migrations of Haplogroup V
    Recent evidence suggests that the members of haplogroup V descend from a woman who lived in Europe approximately 10,000 years ago. When her ancestors arrived in Europe is more of a mystery. They may have migrated to the west from the Middle East before the last great peak of the Ice Age, which occurred around 20,000 years ago. This wave of cold covered the continental interior in icy tundra and pushed Europe's human population south into a few temperate enclaves in the south along the Mediterranean. Haplogroup V likely arose in one of these refuges in the Iberian Peninsula, or perhaps in southeastern Europe.

    23 and Me says my MtDNA haplogroup is H. FTDNA (uploaded raw 23 and Me file) and a professor who analyzes DNA have called it H85. My son also got this result through direct swab testing from FTDNA.

    H is about as broad European as you can get. H85 is virtually unknown--little info about it.

    So other than being European it's not helpful for me.

    OTOH MtDNA has helped identify the birth mother of an adopted friend--but that's a another story.

    H with your SNP's and SAP's are important

    I'm an H too!

    What SNP is the most important to understand for that haplotype @Jack Kruse

    I just received my results too. My haplotype is a T.

    Jack said in Vermont 2017 that if we put our maternal haplogroup with the following SNPs we'd find out in which locations we can live: VDR, 1298, 677, CBS. Here goes.

    Maternal Haplogroup = H5

    VDR Bsm = +/+
    VDR Taq = -/-
    MTHFR C677T = +/-
    MTHFR A1298C = +/-
    CBS C699T = -/-
    CBS A360A = +/-
    CBS N212N = No Call

    And for an added bonus, here's my COMT just because he later mentioned that the above tie to the COMT gene.
    COMT V158M = +/-
    COMT H62H = +/-
    COMT P199P = -/-

    Is this the proper thread for this or should I start a new one and delete this?

    COMT H62H rs4633 TT + +

    VDR Bsm rs1544410 TT +/+

    MTHFR C677T rs1801133 AG +/-

    MTHFR A1298C rs1801131 GT +/-

    MTRR A66G rs1801394 AG +/ -

    My maternal haplogroup is I2d. Where on 23andMe can we find the other info? (VDR, 1298, 677, and CBS?)

    go to geneticgenie.org then share your 23 and me with them

    My maternal haplogroup = J13ca

    VDR Bsm. +/-
    VDR taq. +/-

    MTHFR 1298C +/+
    MTHFR C677T -/-

    CBS C699T. +/-
    CBS A360A. -/-

    I would love more info on where would be a good place to live.

    U4a- most people now carrying that haplogroup have settled in western Russia, which is where my mother was born. My paternal grandfather was from Italy and my paternal grandmother was French/German/Irish. They both lived to 94 despite wide differences in recent ancestral place of origin. The family home was built by my great grandfather on top of a natural spring, so that probably helped. and they were part-time farmers.
  12. My maternal haplogroup group is H1A1.

    I look at maternal haplogroup as a means to figure out ones ideal latitude by finding latitude of grandmother that lived about 5000 years ago.

    I was given mine in my 23and me report.
    Not sure how it works for other haplogroups.

    Possibly there are helpful places on internet.
    Post links to them.

    I read about my maternal haplogroup U5 that it is the most ancient in europe, like goes back 30 000 years ago, and evolved from the mediterranean. Hunter gatherers. No wonder I feel like in heaven and at home when I hunt my oysters at the ocean floor :). Also anything wild that I can find or hunt is pure joy, like picking blueberries or mushrooms etc. Always loved that. Must be the connection to my ancestors speaking.....

    Hello, could help to give me some information about what to check to find out where my grandmother was 10,000 years ago? The laboratory here asks me to give them exactly which one I want them to check. Can you tell me the the name of ones that we need to check? I would really appreciate it!
  17. Mine is H3b and I'm heterozygous for MTHFR C677T and MTHFR A1298C

    I would like to mirror Valusun's query

    ....How do I translate this to what latitude would improve my health?

    Mother, currently 73, rife with gut / thyroid issues.

    I seem to have an excess of bad SNP's here. Oy!

    My maternal haplotype is J2a2. Haplogroup L
    23andme says that it is rare to them.

    My paternal haplotype is J-M67 Haplogroup A
