    Hello! Just learned I am W1, but fit no currently defined subgroup. My mother's family is from Norway, and likely Finland. Looking forward to hearing from more W1's. :)

    MtDNA haplogroup
    W1 +C195T

    Ethnic group
    Scottish/Irish/English
    Country: Canada



    I am also a W1, no specified subgroup. My family is mostly from Scotland, with a dash of Irish and English, at least as far back as I have been able to trace in records. A lot of them were from the outer Hebrides, going back a long way. Ancestry and other atDNA testing sites have estimated my ethnicity as almost entirely UK (Scottish and Irish), with traces of Scandinavian. Which makes sense as the north coast of Scotland and the Hebrides were under the control of Norse kings from time to time throughout history. I have some mutations which are apparently unusual enough to not get mentioned in any of the research I have seen so far: C195T, 309.1C, 315.1C, 522.1A, and 522.2C. However, it can't be that unusual, as I have 11 exact matches on FTDNA. Do we have any mutations in common? Did you find you have a lot of exact matches?

    As an aside, it just occurred to me how bizarre this conversation would seem to many people I know, as we sit here comparing our mutations...

    My daughter (and her mother) has W.

    This is the explanation of 23andMe;

    Haplogroup W has been found at sites from the Corded Ware Culture.


    The name of the Corded Ware culture comes from their characteristic pottery, which was decorated with cord-like designs. The people of the Corded Ware culture likely grew out of the steppe culture north of the Caspian Sea approximately 4,900 years ago, and were highly mobile and used horses and wagons extensively. They spread west to cover much of central and eastern Europe from the Volga to Germany and the coast of the Baltic Sea, spreading proto-Indo-European language with them. In fact, their language was the common prehistoric ancestor of Celtic, German, Baltic and Slavic languages.
    While the expansions of horseback warriors from the steppes are associated most strongly with the spread of paternal lineages, a number of maternal lineages also grew in frequency with the spread of the Corded Ware culture from the east. Researchers have found members of haplogroup W in remains from both the steppes and Corded Ware sites, suggesting that W may have been one of these maternal lineages.
