    mtDNA H2a1

    Hello,

    My mitochondrial DNA haplogroup is H2a1. I am originally from the Northwest Caucasus, from the Circassian sub-branch of Kebertei (Cabardians) despite I have never lived in Russia.

    I would really appreciate if you could help me find out more about mtDNA H2a1 and its origin.

    Thank you

    There is already a thread about my mtDNA subclade H2a1, but it would be great to learn more.

    I my mother is Polish on the maternal side. National Geographic says our haplogroup is most common in Southern Norway and Sweden. Also in Russia. It appears at a high frequency in Saudi Arabia, maybe because of migrations from north to south.

    The haplogroup H evolved in West Asia (the Near East, on the Arabian Peninsula), so no it was not a "migration from north to south", rather a migration from South to North. But yes, this clade (H2a) is the most common of maternal haplogroup H in Saudi Arabia. It peaks in central Arabia with ~10+%.
