MTDNA confirms H17 but as I search for information about it precious little is available. It appears in Central Europe but our family history is a bit murky. Has anyone any advice on how to further search for H17?

Thank you in advance.

There is too little information about H17 at present to extrapolate about its origins.

Haplogroup H is the most common mtDNA family in Europe, but it has hundreds of subclades or sub-subclades. Too few people are taking deep clade tests and consequently we are left with a lot of unidentified H and little useful info about rarer subclades.
