Haplogroup - H4a1a

I have 15 full sequence mtDNA matches at FTDNA. I and two others seem to have Norwegian origin DNA origins. However, most others seem to be English or Irish. I wonder if anybody has any ideas about it's geographical evolution?

The age of H4a1a, i.e. when it split from H4a1, was estimated as 7385 years, with a standard deviation of 1647.4, in the recent paper: Behar, et al. (2012), "A 'Copernican' Reassessment of the Human Mitochondrial DNA Tree from its Root" (available online for free at http://www.cell.com/AJHG/abstract/S0002-9297%2812%2900146-2). So it's much older than any independent identities of Norwegian, English, or Irish.

Thanks, that is goo0d information. I should show it to others who are concerned about the geographic origins of their mtDNA haplogroup.

Hi - According to first 23andMe and then Lick's analysis, I am a mt Haplogroup H4a1a4b. I can trace my female ancestry back to an Alice Chapel, born in 1685 in Wrawby, Lincolnshire. This is not too far from the Humber estuary. Nothing further back, alas.

The National Genographic Geno 2.0 test identified my Hg as H4a1a4b, as well. My paper trail stops at Kate Schuh, daughter of Marie, born 1876 in Darmstadt, Germany. Have any of you learned about interesting research into the H4a1a subclade?

As mentioned, I can trace my H4a1a4b to northern Lincolnshire in 1685. Two things - that area was largely Danegeld, so likely came from Frisian or Angle roots. Second, this is a very rare subgroup, which makes it even harder. I went through the existing literature looking for associations with archeological dna testing, and did not find any matches, as of six months ago.

When did H4a1 split off from H4a? I got a test at 23andme and it gave me H4a1.

Estimated at 8637 years ago (SD = 1559). The list of estimates for all known subclades is in the Supplemental Data of the paper I linked.
