    Hi Apriljb1,

    Are you interested in the most common mtDNA haplogroup, the most common Y-DNA haplogroup, or both??

        The most common mtDNA haplogroup in Iceland would be haplogroup H

        The haplogroup percentages* in Iceland are:
        (average european % in brackets)

        Haplogroup H 47% (50)
        Haplogroup J 14% (11)
        Haplogroup T 10% (8)
        Haplogroup U5 9% (7)
        Haplogroup K 8% (7)
        Haplogroup I 5% (2)

        (*the six most common haplogroups, rounded.)

        These figures are from the paper
        mtDNA and the Islands of the North Atlantic: Estimating the Proportions of Norse and Gaelic Ancestry
