    I admit as well...mtDNA I women are gorgeous from those I've seen. I'm sure it's entirely coincidental though.
    My theory is entirely different. I believe mtDNA I to be Indo-European, or at least from the Russian steppes, and since the gene flow was male mediated during the Copper Age westwards, there was positive selection for local women who inhabited west-central Europe already.

    I think it depends on which branch of I mt-dna. Certainly some branches came to Europe via the Russian Steppes, some via Southern Europe in my opinion.

    Good afternoon. I found your message interesting. I was graced with these two rare haplogroups. On the part of my father, his MTDNA is the "I1" and his oldest ancestor was born in 1613 in Huercal Overa, province of Andalusia, Spain. Already, on the part of my mother, her MTDNA is even rarer. It is the "W8", and its oldest ancestor was born in Mértola, Alentejo region, Portugal. Coincidentally, in addition to rare, the place of origin of these my ancestors report very few (if not, no case) the preseça of these mitochondrial haplogroups. Greetings.Good afternoon.

    Hi! This is my first time posting.I'm W4a1. From what little research I have been able to find, it seems that my specific hg is relatively new as well as rare. Also, my mother had 3 daughters and I have 4 daughters so, I assure you we do have daughters :)

    I belong to mtDNA haplogroup I2 ("Iris"). I would love any additional information.
