  • Help interpreting HVR2 Results

    I just received the results of my HVR2 test. As expected, no matches on FTDNA. On Mitosearch there is one person that appears to match me exactly at the HVR2 level, but does not at the HVR1 level. Mitosearch says that is a difference of -1. How relevant is this match to me? I'm guessing not at all.

    I'm listed as L2a. What do these results tell me about my maternal line beyond an origin in Africa? What does it mean that I have no matches??????

    Any help interpreting results would be greatly appreciated.

    The 16309 could place you in L2a1
    http://www.phylotree.org/tree/subtree_L.htm

    A -1 match means that you have an additional mutation relative to this person (I assume it's 16212). And yes, it doesn't mean much, it could be thousands of years away. If you had many near matches, you could try to infer something from their geographical origin, but that's not the case.

    Unfortunately, Africa hasn't been sampled much, so relatively little is known about the fine scale distribution of haplogroups. Besides, L2a is the most common subgroup especially in West Africa, so it is quite widespread and it is not possible to pinpoint to any place more specifically.

      Thanks for the feedback. I'm also waiting on the final results of my Deep Clade R test. So far it says that I've tested negative for U106 and negative also for L1 under U106. Again, don't know what that means but I'll wait till the final results.
