The mtDNA haplogroup U4 project is hosted by Family Tree DNA. Haplogroup U4 (Ulrike) is a small Indo-European haplogroup that is particularly prevalent in Finland and Russia. It is found at low frequencies throughout Europe, North America and Asia. The project has over 800 members with project members living in the following countries: Australia, Bahamas, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Macedonia, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Romania, Russia, Scotland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Virgin Islands, West Indies, USA.


The haplogroup U4 project was established on 14th June 2006 by Tom Dew. He was succeeded on 25th August 2009 by William Allen. William was assisted by Ron Scott, who was responsible for grouping the participants in the relevant subclades and the phylogenetic work, and Debbie Kennett, who took on the responsibility of welcoming new project members and helping them to understand their results. From January 2012 onwards the project has been managed by Debbie Kennett.


Membership of the project is restricted to those who have tested with Family Tree DNA, the Genographic Project or one of the FTDNA affiliates such as iGENEA.
