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?

Thanks...Kuanyin

Regarding Haplogroup K:

Let's see if I copied this OK.

http://www.mitosearch.org/haplosearch_view.asp?haplo=K&viewuid=arfhh&p=0

I hope this works. If not, look at the Genographic section on FTDNA forum, and look for the SNPs topic.

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.

Any mtDNA K can join our Project. Go to your FTDNA page and click on the blue Join button.

Here's an interesting piece:

...even if it is not about haplogroup U5.
