Haplogroup H14 is a branch on the maternal tree of human kind. The woman who founded this line lived between 9,500 and 12,900 years ago (Behar et al., 2012b).

National Geographic Geno 2.0 Text

Haplogroup: H14
Age: 14,500 ± 5,350 Years Ago
Origin: Central Asia
Blurb: This branch was born in the Caucasus region around 14,500 years ago. It has spread south to West Asia and on to Europe. From its homeland in Central Asia, this line has also traveled to South Asia, where it is present at trace frequencies of less than 1 percent.

Today, this line’s low frequency of 1 to 2 percent across Europe is echoed by similar frequencies in India and in West Asia, such as the Marsh Arab population of Iraq.

Interest Point: One subtype of this line is over 12 percent of the Iranian Jewish population.

mtDNA Haplogroup H14 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 results over to build 17.
