    My mt haplogroup is not especially common - eight J1c1b2 sequences on Genbank out of ~33,000, and only two of those with my extra mutation. I submitted my sequence data to Genbank hoping that in future it leads to further definition of a subclade downstream from J1c1b2 as well as refine the age estimate.
    Hey, deadly77.
    A very thoughtful contribution.
    It is certainly the work on these sub-clades that will edge the times for groups towards the time since surnames became common in western Europe.
    (Yes, I know that might not be much use when they change every generation, but some surnames link to locations and that can help.)
    Y-DNA has benefited greatly from sub-clade analysis.
    It is very recent in mtDNA, but results in the last few years have moved my mtDNA results from being connected with about a third of Europe, to the Celtic British Isles, and now down to two counties.
    All as more results come in and sub-clades of more specificity can be defined.

    I am also curious to hear more like which counties and how many samples total this is based on? My origins are still spread over a big chunk of central/east Europe.

    I would guess Viking slave traders from your distribution, and from the number of Constantinople silver pieces found in Gotland, and the Arab writings about the Scandinavians. After all the English word for slave comes from Slavic, the lands were the source of many women in the markets.
    Out of 64 pre 1800 births 53% Cheshire, 1-2% Worcestershire, 1-2% Scottish (or Irish), 25% south Derbyshire, 12% Burton on Trent area (where 4 counties within 10 miles), 6% Shropshire. One local (?) unknown
