This is a breakdown of Mom’s haplogroup J. This is the final haplogroup in her long chain of historical DNA. This group is very strongly represented in Iran, Turkey, Iraq, Syria, Pakistan and Afghanistan. It is also represented in Denmark, western British Isles, Russia and Kazakhstan.

Within the above subsections there are a large number of further subsections, similar to the way Moms breaks down. She belongs to the last group above.

Mom shares her DNA with Richard III of England (1452-1485) and his brother Edward IV of England (1442-1483). They would have gotten this part of their DNA from their mother, Cecily Neville(3 May 1415 – 31 May 1495), Duchess of York. Cecily Neville, Duchess of York was an English noblewoman and the wife of Richard Plantagenet, 3rd Duke of York. Cecily was a daughter of Ralph Neville, 1st Earl of Westmorland, and Joan Beaufort, Countess of Westmorland.
