    In which region of the world did your blood type originate?

    I have been looking into this for years but do need more data on it.
    So far I have the following:

    O Positive

    All indications show Africa as the source.

    A Positive

    Usually people say Europe, but Armenia and Assyria show up also high in A positive blood. Assyria is high for A2 which
    also Tutankhamun had. So the jury is out on this one, but I actually tend to look at the Fertile Crescent as a potential
    point of origin. And then the Andaman Islanders and Blackfoot Indians appear to be the highest in A positive blood.


    B Positive

    The Himalaya region seems very high. And likely is the point of origin. It is also interesting that most native
    American tribes are 100 percent O positive, yet the Inuits have significant B positive frequencies as well.
    And the Inuits replaced the original Proto-Eskimos around 1,000 years ago which were likely blood type O.
    B is likely the newest of the alleles creating the AB later than that. The fact that AB is the newest blood type
    shows a strong likelihood that in fact blood type B came after O and A.

    AB Positive

    This one is a puzzle as it came when the first B mixed with an A. What is interesting is a study of 55 ancient Hebrew
    remains where more than half turned out blood type AB. Positive or negative has not been indicated in the study:

    Blood types of the ancient Hebrews

    O Negative

    It seems that wherever rh negative blood is high, so is blood type O. Be it amongst the Celts, the Basques or the Rhone Valley Walsers. Looking back in time, Sumer might be the place of origin. But more studies are needed as we only have indications at this point.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8AvjOeApKcI

    A Negative

    Here we go again: Is it Armenia, Assyria or Europe. Or did O negative tribes with Sumerian ancestry simply make it to Europe and mix with
    A positive Europeans to produce A negative blood?

    B Negative

    Since the original blood type B people from the Nepal region were likely all B positive, there is not doubt that B negative blood
    first came up when a B positive person had a child with an O negative one.

    AB Negative

    Again, a blood type A and blood type B person mixing with both carrying the D negative at least recessively was when the first person with AB negative blood was created. Where? You tell me!



    I am interested in more data and thoughts on this. And I am also interested in where people here may think or can pinpoint origin of their
    individual blood type. And what is also of great interest to me are haplogroup frequencies of those sharing the same blood types.

    B positive here. Not any ancestry from the himalayas though, as far as I know (and it's very unlikely)

    Blood type B used to be absent from ancient Europe:

    Switzerland have the most AB- frecuency, with 2% so...

    In the other hand Zimbawe (0.01) Mongolia with 0.04 and asiatics in general have low frecuency.

    See, for you it's 'normal' to have that bloodgroup.

    Not mostly, but a lot. Around 1 in 3 Basques are and it is getting less. But a few thousand years ago, it was likely mostly.

    That would be very rare considering the ancestry mentioned in your profile. :)

    Yep! It's very interesting. I am just curious if haplogroup has anything to do with blood group.

    There are strong correlations. Men with y-DNA R1b for example tend to have higher percentages of rh negatives than the European average. And when you look at haplogroups exclusively in Southeast Asia, you will likely find very few rh negatives amongst them.

    idk tbh, I got my info from when I called the blood center, because they never sent my card. She said A+ over the phone, and they're re-sending it. She also said my blood saved the lives of 3 people :)

    Very cool. If you know your parents' blood types, it might give a clue to the phenotype. Like if one parent is O for example, you will carry that recessively. As you would the rh negative blood factor if either of your parents is rh negative.

    Just to clarify: Most B people in Europe are BO. Around 8 percent BO. "Pure" B is much tougher to find. Only around 0.36 percent in Europe are. So the gene frequency of the B allele is much rarer than the phenotype frequency.

    Looking at your y-DNA R1b, Indo-European ancestry comes to mind. Yamnaya expansions are likely responsible for high Rh(D) negative frequencies in much of Europe. That's ignoring the ancient ones turning into Proto-Basques way before that.
    According to Matthieson, around 65% of Mesolithic hunter-gatherers would have been type O, compared to around 40% in present-day Europeans, and around 40% of Steppe-ancestry individuals would have been Rh-.

    I am 0- as well, and I am an Albanian from North Macedonia.

    The only thing I know about 0- is that I can donate blood to anyone, but can only receive blood from fellow 0-.

    I personally doubt blood groups originated with a specific peoples or in a specific location.
