I see from the map that "K" group is all over Asia...and even in the middle of the Pacific Ocean where it doesn't even look like there are islands. Since I have been id'd recently as coming from the K group on my Mother's side, I am curious if there are other "K's" out there, and what do you know about K. I was looking to prove that my Mother was Native American, and I didn't realize the testing company I used was going to go back to 16,000 B.C. :-) I would like to hear from others about the theory of the Paleoindian crossing of the Atlantic has been written about...didn't Thor Heyerdhal prove this at one time?
Sorry to be so late in replying to this message. I wouldn't normally look on the U5 Forum for K questions. I don't know what map you are looking at, maybe one for Y-DNA haplogroup K, which is not related to mtDNA haplogroup K. Check the map below the chart under the mtDNA Results tab on our website: http://www.familytreedna.com/public/mtDNA%5FK/
There is only one pin in Asia. Most of us have a European origin.
