Haplotype Analysis of Bulgaria and Romania

For the first time a sizable number of samples from Romania and Bulgaria are in my database. I did extensive haplotype analysis on the data which unveiled many unclassified lineages. Romania and Bulgaria share more haplotypes with each other than with any other population and both share a decent number of unique haplotypes with other Eastern Europeans.
Here are some unique haplotypes which make a presence in both Bulgarian and Romanian mtDNA.

T1a(xT1a1’3)-16390: Bulgaria=3, Romania=6
T2f2: Bulgaria=2, Romania=1
T2b-16111T 16311C 16327T: Bulgaria=2, Romania=1
K1c1e: Bulgaria=2, Romania=7
U4-152 185 189: Bulgaria=1, Romania=2
HV0-16311: Bulgaria=6, Romania=7
N1b1-16244A 146C: Bulgaria=2, Romania=8
M-16129 16291 16298: Bulgaria=1, Romania=8
W-16172C 16231C 210: Bulgaria=6, Romania=4

Although the mtDNA composition of Bulgaria and Romania are of course not identical. Here are some significantly frequent haplotypes the two countries don’t share.

H1a3-16075 16172=6
U5b-16192! 16189! 16465=7
U2(f)-16092 16111 16179=2
J1c2e(xJ1c2e2, J1c2e1)=10

U3-16166 16311=3
T2-16172 16274=3

I also searched for haplotypes Romania and Bulgaria share with other populations. I organized what I found into this spreadsheet; Romania, Bulgaria Haplotypes. As you can see in the spreadsheet both countries share many haplotypes with other Eastern Europeans. But haplotypes centered in Western Europe and the Middle East also pop up.

Below is a list of what I think are the most interesting haplotypes in that spreadsheet…

Eastern Europe
M-16129 16298 16291: Bulgaria=1, Romania=8, Greece=3, Poland=1, Volga=1, Burusho=1

U4a2a: Romania=1, Poland=7, Russia=6, Ukraine=4, Belo=2, Slovak=2, Austria=2, Volga=1, Algeria=1, South Italy=1
J1c7: Bulgaria=2, Russia=1, Poland=1, Ukraine=1, Czech=1, Austria=1, BeloRussia=2, Balt=1, Andalusia=1, Valencia=1
H11a2a2: Bulgaria=2, Romania=2, Poland=13, Russia=1, Ukraine=1, Belo=1, Volga=1, Balkan=4, Greece=1, Slovenia=1, SW Turkey=1

Middle East

HV2-16243: Romania=2, Bosnia=1, South IndiaTamil=1, Persian=1, Makrani=1, Uzbeck=1.

Western Europe
U4a1-16240: Romania=1, NW France=2, Andalusia=3, Y Leon=1, South Italy=1, Balt=3
U5b2b3: Romania=1, Andalusia=3, Y Leon=2, Madrid=1, Portugal=2, Ireland=1, Britain=2, Algeria=1, Neo France=2, Neo Spain=4, Unetice=1
