Haplogroup X2m’n is a branch on the maternal tree of humanity.


Though the age for this branch has not been calculated in research,it is possible to estimate its age by the age of its parent and the age of its children. Based on these, it was born around 19 thousand years ago at the end of the paleolithic.


Like it parent, mtDNA haplogroup X2m’n has a likely origin just outside of Africa in Western Eurasia.

Modern Distribution

Members are found in the greater Middle East and in Europe. In Europe, a southern origin is more common.

mtDNA Haplogroup X2m’n 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.
