Background

Haplogroup W6 is a branch on the maternal tree of humanity.

National Geographic Geno 2.0 Text

Haplogroup: W6
Age: To Be Determined
Origin: West Asia
Blurb: This point in your ancestors' journey began in West Asia. Some from this group traveled west to Anatolia. Others from this lineage traveled first to Anatolia and then north or directly from West Asia to Eastern Europe.

Today, this lineage is present most often in Iraq. It is around 7 percent of maternal lineages there. In Turkey and Armenia, this lineage is about 3 percent of the population. It is around 1 percent of the population across Eastern Europe, including Belarus, Lithuania, and Slovakia.

Interest Point: Martha Stewart belongs to this lineage.

mtDNA Haplogroup W6 Data Sources

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.
