  • mtDNA Haplogroups

    This is a master project, to collect information about the specific mtDNA haplogroup projects on Geni. All modern humans descend in the female line from a particular woman, nicknamed "Mitochondrial Eve," who lived about 150,000 years ago. Each of us has inherited her mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), along with the mutations that have accumulated in our individual family lines. Mitochondrial DNA (...

  • H1 (Mitochondrial DNA)

    H1 is a mitochondrial DNA haplogroup that is very diverse and fairly widespread. It is strongly represented in Europe today although it extends into North Africa and Asia. Members of the H1 haplogroup share a common matrilineal (direct maternal) ancestor, who lived around 9,900 years ago or possibly earlier, most likely in southwest Europe. Introduction to Mitochondrial DNA and Haplogroups ...

  • DNA Testing: Choosing a test

    Genetic genealogy is a hot topic, but many people are put off by the learning curve. This is a place to get answers to your questions. MH/Geni DNA Tests This project is sponsored by Geni's curators to provide help in choosing a DNA test and understanding what questions the different types of tests might answer. How to participate If you want to see the discussions from thi...

  • R-U106 (Y-DNA)

    This project is for people who have tested and been assigned the paternal haplogroup R-U106 (Y-DNA) and also for people who are believed to have been this paternal haplogroup based on tests done on descendants. The current naming convention is to use the terminal SNP, so R1b, U106* Also known as R1b1b2a1a (S21+), previously known as R1b1b2a From The R1b1b2a1 (S21+) is a prominent R1b subcla...

  • Y-DNA haplogroups

    A Y-DNA haplogroup defines a group of men by the shared features of their Y-chromosome. Members of the same Y-haplogroup have a patrilineal (direct paternal) ancestor in common. Y-DNA haplogroup assignments can help to identify recent and distant genetic ancestry, and provide insight into ancient human societies and their migrations. This project offers a thorough presentation on Y-DNA haplogro...
