  • mtDNA Haplogroup J* - Eastern Europe

    Hello,

    Something of interest for those of you researching mtDNA hap J.

    My mtDNA haplogroup is J* ( some of you already know this ).

    To date I have only one exact HVR1 & HVR2 match in FTDNA's database - a Russian.

    http://www.mitosearch.org/haplosearc...wuid=2VP2C&p=0

    I have a few more matches ( Russian,Romanian....),that can be found in scientific studies like the one below.
    261 Mitochondrial DNA variability in Poles and Russians
    B. A. MALYARCHUK", T. GRZYBOWSKI#, M. V. DERENKO", J.
    CZARNY#, M. WOZ;NIAK# and D. MIS;CICKA-S;LIWKA#

    My match is on page 278 - a Russian again.

    Please read the following to understand how my mtDNA
    lineage possibly arrived in north western Greece ( my
    mtDNA line was from this part of the country )

    1) http://www.farsarotul.org/nl11_1.htm

    2)http://www.rastko.org.yu/arheologija...-greece_e.html

    3) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cucuteni_culture (pointed out by my exact FTDNA match )

    Have a good day !

    Best regards,

    Hello,

    Also I should mention, that I have a mtDNA match in
    an unpublished Russian federation study ( Kornienko )

    http://tiny.cc/3SFgA to see where study was
    carried out.

    And that I have a match in the Tomsk area ,but I *
    need * to obtain confirmation of this:

    Researchers in mtDNA hap J are welcome to use my
    results in their work and can mention my name - but I do
    not wish to join any more projects at the moment.

    Regards,
    Costa Tsirigakis

      Please note that I only accept confirmed matches ( from published or unpublished studies ) - so the above will not be used in my research.

        Let me clarify a few things :

        1) I have * no * known Vlach,Slavic etc ancestors - my mtDNA line as
        many of my other ancestral lines can be traced back to 1500-1600s.
        I mentioned the Vlach,Slavic etc possibilities in order to be *objective*.(My mtDNA line is in fact from north western Greece )

        2)Looking at my mtDNA matches there is another scenario that of the
        ancient Greek colonization of the black sea area.

        I had hoped,that some FORUM member had mentioned this possibility.
