Defining Mutations

G2706A and T7028C

Origin

Haplogroup H has an estimated age of about 25,000 to 30,000 years. In his popular book The Seven Daughters of Eve, Bryan Sykes named the originator of this mtDNA haplogroup Helena. It is the most common haplogroup in Europe; about half of all people with European origin belong to this group.

Distribution

FromNatGEO: "Mitochondrial haplogroup H is a predominantly European haplogroup that originated outside of Europe before the last glacial maximum (LGM). It first expanded in the northern Near East and southern Caucasus between 33,000 and 26,000 years ago, and later migrations from Iberia suggest it reached Europe before the LGM. It has also spread to Siberia and Inner Asia. Today, about 40% of all mitochondrial lineages in Europe are classified as haplogroup H."

Subclades of H

There are currently 100s of defined subclades of H. For the defining SNPs see mtDNAcommunity or Phylotree.org. People with haplogroup H will normally need a Full Sequence test (FMS) to find their subgroup of H.
