I am K2a maternal haplogroup – HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY
Haplogroup K has an estimated age of about 12,000 years. In his popular book The Seven Daughters of Eve, Bryan Sykes named the originator of the K haplogroup Katrine.
Haplogroup K makes up a sizeable fraction of European and West Asian mtDNA lineages. It is now known it is actually a subclade of haplogroup U8b’K, and is believed to have first arisen in northeastern Italy.
