Background

Haplogroup J is a branch on the maternal tree of human kind. It is a child of haplogroup JT. It was likely born in the West Asia around 34,000 years ago. (Behar et al., 2012b)

West Asia

Origin

Most researchers consider the birthplace of J to have been born in West Asia.

Age

Behar et al., 2012b placed the birth of the J lineage between 29,400 and 39,100 years ago. This means the line was born in the Upper Paleolithic. People were using stone tools.

National Geographic Geno 2.0 Text

Haplogroup: J
Age: 32,600 ± 10,400 Years Ago
Origin: West Asia
Blurb: This point in your direct maternal ancestors’ journey began in West Asia during the early Upper Paleolithic period. However, population geneticists often use it as a marker of the Neolithic expansions that introduced farming to Eurasia.
This lineage has a wide distribution and is present as far east as the Indus Valley bordering India and Pakistan, and as far south as the Arabian Peninsula. It is also common in East and North Europe.This line reaches its highest frequency in Arabia, comprising 25 percent of Bedouin and Yemeni lineages. Geneticists explain this as a recent founder event or population bottleneck event.

Interest Point: Francesco Petrarca, the father of Humanism, was a member of this lineage.

mtDNA Haplogroup J 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.
