Bangladesh is officially the People’s Republic of Bangladesh. It is located in South Asia.

History

Beginning around the 16th century there were a number of significant industrial growths in the agricultural sector. The period brought about a lot of reforms, economic prosperity, and thriving external trade especially in silk textiles and muslin.

However, the empire was brought down and run over by British colonial power in 1757, ushering in a new regime. The new power pushed agrarian reforms. The British tenure established a plantation economy that focused mainly on tea production and jute trade. That continued up until the 20th century.

The People’s Republic of Bangladesh went through a number of revolutions before becoming a sovereign state in 1971 following a break-away Bangladesh liberation war with Pakistan.

Around 16th December 1971, a Bangladesh liberation war broke out between the Pakistani and Bengali, and the end of that saw Bangladesh being declared as a sovereign state, becoming a secular republic and a member of the Commonwealth.

Genographic ProjectGeno 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 results over to build 17.
