About a year ago I did the mid-level mitochondria test with FamilyTree DNA but that test only said that my maternal haplogroup was H and to explore that further I would need to go up to the next test. However with the test from 23 & Me I now have my maternal haplogroup as H2a2b1.
According to 23 and Me, my DNA Ancestry composition is broken down as follows:
- European 99.4%
- Northwest European 91.4%
- British & Irish 44.3%
- French & German 11.9%
- Scandinavian 4.6%
- Finnish 1.7%
- Southern European 5.2%
- Sardinian 1.6%
- Iberian 0.5%
- Italian 0.5%
- East Asia & Native American 0.4%
- Native American 0.4%
- Sub-Saharan Africa 0.2%
- West Africa 0.2%
With 23 and Me you also get all of kinds of reports for different things. I was surprised to find my Neanderthal Ancestry variants was so high, 291 to be exact! I am not entirely sure how I should proceed with these results because it is way above what I currently I understand about DNA. However, I am continuing my reading on DNA and hopefully I can put these results in perspective soon. I guess I am as old or older than dirt!
I was also surprised to learn that I have one variant for the CFTR gene (Cystic Fibrosis). This would have been nice to know before I had children! Thankfully, I can only presume to think that my children's father was not a carrier otherwise at least one of children could have had Cystic Fibrosis.
