As nobody else seems to have replied I thought I would just say a few words.
Haplogroup H15 would appear to be characterised by mutations at 55, 57 and 6253
and no mutation at 3010 (which would suggest H1).
H15 seems to be just one of the many H subgroups; and it is not really possible to
say very much except that it found sparsely thoughout all the Mediterranean countries,
and, it would appear, 'across to India'.
I suggest the present distribution tends to follow that of the great Southern Empires,
viz. the Egyptians, the Greeks, the Persians and the Romans,
which would fit with all these peoples coming from Indoeuropean stock which
already had a high proportion of Haplogroup H.
I have, in response to the posting, updating my H15 webpage - but as there appears
to be only 3 full mtDNA sequences for Haplogroup H15 published so far, I cannot say
that the page is as informative as some others.
To have yourself tested for the full sequence would make it interesting for you and allow
other persons to match against you in the future.

I just received my latest mtDNA testing results and the results placed me in
the H15 group. I understand that it is a small group. Do you have any
other information on this group?
