H11 haplogroup

A couple of months later than I thought I would be reporting on H11 haplogroup.

There are now 119 members of this study with 71 giving their ancestral location.

Croatia                                 2
E Europe                              1
England                              10
Finland                               14
France                                  1
Germany                              4
Greece                                  1
Hungary                               2
Ireland                                  6
Israel                                    1
Italy                                      1
Norway                                3
NW Europe                         1
Poland                                 6
Prussia                                1
Russia                                 6
Scotland                              3
Serbia                                  1
Slovakia                              1
Sweden                               3
The Netherlands                 1
Ukraine                               1
United Kingdom                 1

Combining this into distinct areas in Europe + Israel one can see first of all this is a predominantly European haplogroup thus far.

Southern Europe + Israel                      4                   

Eastern Europe                                    17

Scandinavian Penninsula                     20

Western/Central Europe                      10

British Isles                                         20

Broken into haplogroup subclades

H11                                  5

H11a                              35

H11a-207A                      2

H11a1                            30

H11a2                              3

H11a2a                            4

H11a2a1                        11

H11a2a2                         5

H11a2a3                         2

H11a2-T16092C            3

H11a3                            3

H11a4                            3

H11a5                            0

H11a6                            1

H11a7                            1

H11b                              1

H11b1                          10

To date none of these could be declared to be location specific although H11a2a1 does appear to be most commonly found in the British Isles (only 5 out of 9 reporting but two of the members report likely British Isles surnames/colonial emigrants to America) and H11a2a2 appears to be an Eastern European grouping (out of 6 members 4 report Eastern Europe, 1 reports Western Europe and 1 reports Scandinavian Peninsula).

Back mutations of 16092C do appear in the H11a2 and H11a2a clade as well as in the subclades H11a2a1 and H11a2a2. FT DNA has started reporting a back mutation in 16140C as H11a2-T16092C.

H11a1  reports 10 from the Scandinavian Peninsula, 2 from the British Isles, 10 from Eastern Europe, 2 from Central/Western Europe and 2 from Southern Europe.
