    I think it should be I2 or C, yet I have missed his mtdna paper so is it U?

    His MtDNA was U5, but I don't think his Y haplogroup has ever been identified (or at least it has not been publicized).

    Ancient mtDNA is easier to obtain. It's much more difficult to get a good coverage autosomal sample from ancient remains.

    The Mesolithic Spanish Hunter - Gatherer LaBrana Man carried Y-DNA C6. Its very likely that Cheddar Man also carried this Haplogroup. Haplogroup C originated in South Asia. Their MTDNA was U5. MTDNA U is a Middle Eastern Haplogroup in origin.

    C6 is not an accurate way to describe Y-DNA. Chances are you are quoting very old ISOGG nomenclature. Use SNPs such as C-V20.

    You think a distance of 19 is a close match????

    Well, I did not say so. But the Big Thing for me is to know, that we share "the same" ancient parents

    MTA says: Genetic distance measures how close you are to a given sample.
    • 10 means this is your ancient ancestry
    • 20 means this is part of your ancestral link
    • 30 means possibly related to your ancestry
