Background

Haplogroup R1a1a2 is a branch on the maternal tree of humanity. The age of this branch is unclear. We can say that it is younger than its parent that is between 1,700 and 6,200 years old (Behar et al., 2012b). Like its parent, it was likely born in the Caucasus region.

Published studies include six samples from citizen science. Five of these do not have demographic information (Behar et al., 2012b). The sixth is a Canadian with origins in the British Isles (Greenspan et al., 2006 – 2016). A medical study (Raule et al., 2014) tested two people from this lineage. They are from Denmark.

Geno 2 data includes members of this lineage from Germany, Poland, and the United Kingdom. There are also many Americans with European origins.

Based on the branch's young age and the modern distribution, it is possible that women from this line were part of the migrations into Europe during the Bronze age.

Phylotree History

Phylotree.org is the maternal (mtDNA) tree of humanity. It is maintained by Dr. Mannis Van Oven. Each build is a major update to the tree. The current build is #17.

GenBank Samples

GenBank is a database of genetic sequence data. It is run by the United States National Institute of Health. It serves as the main repository for mtDNA full sequence profiles. Samples come both from published academic literature and donations from genetic genealogy community members. In addition to GenBank samples, listings below may include other samples published but not submitted to GenBank such as those from the HapMap project.

Note: GenBank results currently use Phylotree build 16. I am working on changing resuts over to build 17.

Geno 2.0 Data

Data from Geno 2.0 is derived from the The National Geographic Society’s Genographic Project — the DAR. The Hg ID is specific to this site and is used to protect the identities of those who take part in Genographic research. Birth Country, Mother's Birth Country, and Maternal Grandmother's Birth Country have been normalized from DAR database fields. The Maternal Origin is determined based on the three previous fields.

Note: Geno 2.0 results currently use Phylotree build 16. I am working on changing resuts over to build 17.
