HV
Hi,
I am new to the population genetics business and got tested by LivingDNA. My mtDNA group is HV which I understand is a precursor to the common H group for Europeans. I am French but only a few percent of French seem to belong to HV. They only found 6 mutations from the rCRS reference, which may not be surprising as this reference belongs to H2. So from there how can I know more about by matrilineal history?
Thanks
 
Hi pfouque.
What company did you have your dna test with?
HV is a general branch from which H and V split, however, it is posible that you are a subbranch of HV ( ex: HV1, HV 2... etc.) Those branches are sister branches to H and V branches, but since they have few descendants, they keep the "HV" in the name.
