Title: J2a1a1b
Post by: LaurieD on September 07, 2013, 09:04:16 PM
seems to be only a few of us...I have tested on three different tests - Ancestry, FTDNA and 23 and Me. I have no idea of ethnic origin for this mtDNA of my tree. My maternal line brickwalls me at my GG Grandmother....

Anyone else in the same haplogroup?

Mt hgs are very old (several thousand years) and very  scattered often

According to wikipedia, the frequency peak is in:

J1a  = Austria-Switzerland — 3%

My J2a1a1b maternal haplogroup is from my Pennsylvania Dutch line- originating in the Alsace Lorraine area of Germany. Here's what 23andMe has to say,

Haplogroup J originated about 45,000 years ago on the Arabian Peninsula, just as modern humans were first expanding out of Africa and onto the Eurasian continent. Two subsequent migrations carried daughter lineages of J, including J2, into Europe. Those migrations coincided with the spread of farming into Europe about 7,000 years ago.

J2a1a1b is a subgroup of J2 which is a subgroup of J found primarily in Eastern Europe and the Near East. This population is predominantly found today among Dutch, German, Spanish and Italian people. J2 may have arrived in the British Isles with the invading Anglo-Saxons.

I am J2a1a1b (mtDNA).  The oldest known maternal ancestors that I have is Sarah Gardener/Gardner who was b. about 1700 in Baltimore Co., Md and married Richard Hendon in 1723.  Her daughter was Jemima Hendon b.  Baltimore Co., d. Huntingdon Co. PA, married John Wright; her daughter was Elizabeth "Betsy" Wright who married Robinson L. Chilcote in PA, d. in either Ohio or Indiana; Betsy had several daughters almost all of whom ended up living in Vinton County, Ohio, United States: Mary Chilcote m. Thomas Elijah Tilton ; Permelia/Milly Chilcote married Frederick Corrick (Vinton Co, OH); Jemima Chilcote married George Corrick; Cynthia or Rachel Chilcote m. William Stevens; Nancy Chilcote married Aaron Ankrom - there was also a daughter Susannah Chilcote who I don't know whether married - they had brothers Samuel Robinson Chilcote, Benjamin Chilcote and Washington Chilcote. I have other information on others in this line, but have not been able to get back further than Sarah Gardener.

I am J2a1a1b. I just took the test. It seems to be somewhat of a rare Haplogroup. I am also new to this site. I am willing to swap info with anyone interested.

I got my 23 and me reports back and I am in the Maternal Haplogroup J2a1a1b.  I also had my father do the test.  My mother died in 1997 and she had no sisters. Her mother died in 86 and all of her sisters are now dead too.  That's as far back as I can go really; I know my great-grandmother's name but not her maiden name, she died in the early 80's.  I have some pictures of my great-grandmother.  She's fair complected, blue eyes as I remember even though the photos are black and white.  From what I remember, that side of the family is from northern Europe/Scandinavia.  Maternal lines are so hard to trace with maiden names and so on.  It doesn't help that the line ends with me, I have no daughters, I was an only child, my mom had a brother but no sisters, my grandmother's sisters all had boys!

My mothers dna side was J2a1a1b.  According to her her grandparents from the mothers side were from Holland.  I believe the last name was either Schultz or DeJung, but getting straight answers is like pulling teeth. 

Reading up on the origins of the J2 line, they came from Clan Jasmine which originated in the Arabic Peninsula.  while J2 is very rare. However, J2 is found amongst 9% of the Kalash minority of north-west Pakistan.[7]   Where west meets east: the complex mtDNA landscape of the southwest and Central Asian corridor, American Journal of Human Genetics, vol. 74 (2004), pp. 827–845.

What my take away is this: This particular line we belong to originated in Arabia.. while many stuck around in that area & are found there today, many of this particular mutation also moved throughout all of Europe in smaller quantities. 

Anyone else find info on this? All I'm seeing is the European side, it'd be interesting to see another racial origins that can shed light on this.

Hi everyone just found this site while searching as I have just got my results back from 23&me and found out this is my maternal line. I'm from the uk and was trying to find out more about this haplogroup as it seems to be a bit rarer in the uk. I was always curious of my mothers roots as she has darker skin. what you expect isn't always obvious as my father was very fair skinned and burnt as soon as he looked at the sun. The biggest shock is that his  haplogroup is North African/Balkan based and that his relatives most probably came the uk as a Roman legionnaire. Totally fascinating so I'd like to find out how my mums side came to the uk.
