View Full Version : Mtdna L3e2b

07-12-18, 22:06
I’m new here. I’ve been working on several branches of our family tree.
I hit a brick wall on my maternal and paternal sides at about 1800. So I decided to have my dna tested.
My dna results from two different companies show that I’m 69.3%.
I’m trying to figure how to used my mtdna results to trace maternal Ancestory and migration. I also have my paternal haplo group from my brothers test. R-U152
I’m confused on how to read all the letters and numbers.
What do the numbers in L3e2b haplo group stand for.
I understand that there are 3 different branches of L group. L1 L2 and L3. Then it looks like L3 splits, and you have 2 new branches, M and N. Is that a mutation?
After that I can’t find e.
Is (e) a mutation? What’s the difference between mutations, claves, and subclaves?
I would appreciate any help.

Thank you 😊
