ROSA CARABETTA

Rosa Carabetta was born around 1753 in Martone.  A descendant on the female line of Rosa Carabetta– her daughter’s daughter’s daughter’s daughter’s daughter– took an mtDNA test for the Calabria DNA Project, to find the origin of this female line.   This participants mtDNA, which was inherited from her mother’s mother’s mother’s line way back in time, virtually unchanged from 1000s of years ago, places her maternal line overall on branch H1e of the Human Female Family Tree.  To investigate the specific sub-branch of  Haplogroup H1e her maternal line is on, we would have to test more markers on her mtDNA.   This would allow us to pinpoint her origins more precisely and more recently.   However, at this time, just by knowing her maternal line is in Haplogroup  H1e,  we can still say that generally his maternal origins are in Western Europe.   To see this specific sub-branch, click on the link Human Female Family Tree and go to Branch  R0 at the bottom of the page.  Click on that link.  That will take you to the sub-divisions of Branch R0*, where you can further find sub-branch H1e.   You can read more about Haplogroup H and its sub-branches here on Wikipedia’s website.
