How far back do I have to go to find a common ancestor for a 3-steps match (full sequence mtDNA test)?

There is no easy answer - it depends on which haplogroup and subclade you are in, how many extra mutations you have, the types of mutations that are considered "steps". You need to look at the specific details of each case to get an answer.

Thank you very much! This is a T2b4-T152C!, and the 1- and 2-steps matches (only a few) are in the same country, but the rest (3-steps, 8 of numbers) are found in quite different countries than the (0-), 1- and 2-steps matches. I just wondered how long since the HG came to this country...

If the haplogroup T project has an active manager, that might be able to give you a more specific answer. Behar estimate T2b4 to be about 6000 years old. If you and your near matches share extra mutations, in addition to those that define T2b4, your subgroup will have a young age estimate.

Where can I find a list of mutations for T2b? My wife is T2b.

I had my son Geno 2.0 tested and when I transfered his results the Y SNPs were posted but not the MT SNPs.It just says on his page that he is T2b. I looked at his file and he has 11242G and 12171T.
