  • Haplogroup J

    I just got my Nat'l Geographic Genographic results back and belong to Haplogroup J. Nothing else. Just J. Arrgh, I was hoping for more details. How do I get more details? Haplogroup J covers so much territory!

    mtDNA or Y-DNA J? Same name, but they're different... mtDNA is the maternal line, Y-DNA is the paternal line. You should have more information than that. For mtDNA, you should have been given a list of mutations from CRS. For Y-DNA, you should have been given 12 numeric marker values.

    You should transfer your results to Family Tree DNA. At the very bottom of your GP results page, there's a link to Learn More about Family Tree DNA. Click that link and follow the instructions to create an account at FTDNA and upload your results here. Then you'll be able to see everyone else in FTDNA's database who match you.

    Also, after you have your FTDNA account, you'll find a link on your myFTDNA page to upload your results to Mitosearch (for mtDNA) or Ysearch (Y-DNA). These are public databases which also have results from people who tested with other companies, so they'll give you another place to look for matches.

      Thanks, it's mtDNA. I visited my low resolution group list and it's pretty much what I expected. I also did the upload of my results. I'll just have to keep checking as more people add their data.

      Thanks!

        mtDNA Haplogroup J

        Is there anywhere to look for things like percentage of mtDNA Haplogroup J in the general population of certain areas? For instance, I read somewhere that 10% of women in Europe have Haplogroup J, but I don't know where the person found that data.

        Thanks

          Okay, I'm reading more and getting more information on what to look for.

          I'm actually mtDNA haplogroup J* - HVR1 mutations - 069T,126C,222T

          This is SO cool.

            lsmc, here's a website for mtdna haplogroup J*. You can join the project and have your results updated to it by going going to your personal ftdna page and clicking "Join Project".

                Take a look at the last map in this document:

                  I've ordered the more extensive HVR2 tests to piece together more information on a common ancestor. Also, I've sent a kit to a male cousin to get more information on my mother's paternal line (Sterling) and then he can be part of the St*rling project.

                  Also, is there a way to change a thread title? I should have made this thread mtDNA Haplogroup J*.
