Hey Everybody I am from Turkey.I have just found my mtDNA haplogroup is J.
What is the meaning of it?
My HVR1---Difference from rCRS
16069T 16126C 16193T 16519C
My HVR2---Difference from rCRS
73G 150T 152C 263G
295T 309.1C 315.1C 489C
HVR1 and HVR2 results show me that i may be from Ireland or England.But i am from Turkey.
My mum side has white skin,green or blue eyes and dark blonde hair.
Also i am adding here my photo.

Could you clasify me and lets talk about J haplogroup!!
Around 45,000 years before present, a mutation took place in the DNA of a woman who lived in the Near East or Caucasus. Further mutations took place in the J line which can be identified as J1a1 (27,000 yrs ago), J2a (19,000 yrs ago), J2b2 (16,000 years ago), J2b3 (5,800 yrs ago), etc. Haplogroup J (along with ‘T’) is associated with the peoples who migrated to Europe and developed farming and herding during the Neolithic Era (8,000-10,000 yrs ago).
Average frequency of J Haplogroup as a whole is highest in the Near East (12%) followed by Europe (11%), Caucasus (8%) and North Africa (6%). Of the two main sub-groups, J1 takes up four-fifths of the total and is spread on the continent while J2 is more localised around the Mediterranean, Greece, Italy/Sardinia and Spain. In Pakistan, where West Eurasian lineages occur at frequencies of up to 50% in some ethno-linguistic groups, J1 averages around 5%, while J2 occurrence is very rare. Intriguingly, however, it is found amongst 9% of Kalash, a small ethnic community dwelling in the Hindu Kush mountains of Pakistan.
Within Europe, >2% frequency distribution of mtDNA J is as follows:
J* = Ireland — 12%, England-Wales — 11%, Scotland — 9%, Orkney — 8%, Germany — 7%, Russia (European) — 7%, Iceland — 7%, Austria-Switzerland — 5%, Finland-Estonia — 5%, Spain-Portugal — 4%, France-Italy — 3%
J1a = Austria-Switzerland — 3%
J1b1 = Scotland — 4%
J2 = France-Italy — 2%
J2a = Homogenously spread in Europe. Absent in the nations around the Caucasus. Not known to be found elsewhere.
J2b1 = Virtually absent in Europe. Found in diverse forms in the Near East.
You appear to be some variety of J2b. You would need a full sequence of your mtDNA for better resolution.
As far as I know, mtDNA haplogroups do not have any influence on someone's appearance (it's too small to change anything).
BTW, your eyes are unusual (guzel gozler):-)
You remind me a teeny bit of Oksana Baiul:
