Subject: [DNA] Haplogroup W
Date: Mon, 17 Nov 2003 01:04:44 EST
I recently received my mtDNA Haplogroup designation from Family Tree DNA.
The haplogroup was not readily identifiable, and had to be sent away for
additional testing. The results came back yesterday.
What is the origin of Haplogroup W?
Can a racial designation be assigned Haplogroup W?
My most recent maternal ancestor of this direct line was Rhoda, born ca.
1804, daughter of James S. Strain. I had assumed that she was Irish.
Thanks for any help!
