Mitochondrial DNA Haplogroup V is most closely related to Haplogroup H.  Hg V appears to have originated about 16-17,000 years ago in Spain making it the youngest of the mtDNA haplogroups.  Hg H and Hg V may be the only ones to have evolved after humans reached Europe (i.e., after leaving the Middle East).  Hg H is the most common haplogroup in Europe, being represented in about half the population, while Hg V is the rarest, being represented in only about 4% of Europeans.  Hg V is found thinly throughout Europe, but is most common among the Basques of northern Spain and the Saami people of Finland.  Whit Athey has an excellent discussion of Haplogroup V on his web site. 

In the trivia department, a matrilineal descendant of Benjamin FRANKLIN's maternal grandmother has been mtDNA tested, and she is Haplogroup V.

So far, we have four Danish Demes project members who are Haplogroup V.

In the FTDNA database, this individual has hundreds of HVR1 matches, and about a dozen HVR1+HVR2 matches.
*Our subject was tested at a second laboratory (Genetic Ancestors), which came up with the same results as FTDNA, except for adding a second insertion of C at location 309.
