Hello, everyone.

My maternal Haplogroup appears to be W. I feel a bit frustrated that there's so little information on my group compared to the more common H.

So, I'm confused. There seems to be a lot of conflicting opinion as to whether Haplogroup W is European, Middle Eastern, Indian, or Asian.

I've been able to extract vague hints that my subgroup of W is likely the Northern European/Finnish one, but I'm still confused as to why I would be so far away genetically from H and the other common European DNA groups (not counting the spike in Finland), and so close to random people from India and Pakistan.

I mean, what happened? Am I a direct matrilineal descendant of an ancient European or Middle Eastern tribe that was nearly wiped out by the modern inhabitants of Europe and Asia? That's the only thing I can think of that explains the weird geographical distribution of results.
