V19

Interesting, I have 35 mutations in my coding region. I am designated as V19.

I have two (2) step matches & four (3) step matches at this point in time, and some good family trees to work with, so not too bad.

I have been told that the V19 mutations occurred in the British Isles.

Best regards, Douglas W. Fisher, Kit #122883

Paternal: U106+Z18+Z14+Z372+
Maternal: V19

Grouping

In the V Haplogroup project spreadsheet, I have been grouped with my two 2 step matches, who are perfect matches to each other. Researching to find our common ancestor.

V19a1

I am V19a1 haplogroup. My closest two matches at this point in time are two 2 step matches, because I have two heteroplasmies.

Since hereroplasmies are mutations that are still mutating, not fully matured, they are not considered a mismatch like a fully matured mutation mismatch; therefore my two closest V19 matches are most likely still within a 500 year timeframe for sharing common ancestor. My heteroplasmies will most likely benefit me someday, when someone who is also V19 has the same heteroplasmies as me; kind of like a fingerprint.

Can you inherit heteroplasmy ? I did not think so.

Yes

Can you inherit heteroplasmy ? I did not think so.

I inherited the heteroplasmies from my birth mother, and she inherited them from her birth mother. The heteroplasmies can take many generations to mature. I know that my birth mother had other children, so if one of her children were to do a full sequence mtdna test someday, then we would match.

DWFlineage, thank you! Thanks to you, I have learned that it is possible to inherit heteroplasmy.

The closest I had found on explaining the mechanism was the abstract from Mitochondrial DNA and the mammalian oocyte (2007).

I read that abstract too, and I did further research which did state that heteroplasmies are inherited. One research study that I read was encouraging, because they researched a group of centurians, and found that they also had inherited heteroplasmies.
