    I* (M170) is the Paleolithic lineage from which all subclades of I derive. I* is associated with Cro-Magnon and is very rare nowadays. Have you been tested for all subclades of I ?

    I saw your results and you almost 100 % belong to haplogroup I2b1. It is haplogroup typical for Lower Saxony, and as you said that your surname is Sorbian by origin, it is understandable that you belong to haplogroup I2b1 becuse the Sorbs lives today in region of Saxony.

    Look at map below,this is the position of I2b1 in Europe:
    http://yorkyingers.com/dna_files/image002.jpg

    And about haplogroup I2b1 from Eupedia:

    I2b (formerly I1c) is associated with the pre Celto-Germanic people of North-Western Europe, such as the megaliths builders (5000-1200 BCE). The wide variety of STR markers within I2b could make it as much as 13,000 years old.

    I2b is found in all Western Europe, but apparently survived better the Indo-European invasions (=> see R1b above) in northern Germany, and was reintroduced by the Germanic invasions during the late Roman period. Nowadays, I2b peaks in central and northern Germany (10-20%), the Benelux (10-15%) as well as in northern Sweden. It is also found in 3 to 10% of the inhabitants of Denmark, East England, and Northern France. It is rare in Norway, which concords with the fact that it hasn't been invaded by people from northern Germany.

    There are two major subclades : I2b1 (M223+) and I2b2 (L38/S154+), further subdivided in at least 4 subclades each, although little is known about them yet. The subclade I2b1a (M284+) occurs almost exclusively in Britain, where it seemingly developed about 3,000 years ago.

    You should have said so directly. The National Genographic Project is not a trustworthy DNA test as only top haplogroups are tested and not subclades. But based on your STR's you are I2b1.

    Sorry, but its a wrong information. Theres a big geographic difference between Lower Saxony (Niedersachsen), Saxony (Sachsen) and Saxony-Anhalt (Sachsen-Anhalt). Look on the maps of Wikipedia!

    I2b you find in the Netherlands and in Northgermany. But also on the British Isles and other typical celtic/germanic regions.

    The Sorbs (german: Sorben, Wenden) today live in the Lausitz and its a part of Brandenburg, Saxony (not Lower Saxony!) and a small part of poland.

    The Sorbs are Slavic, and the most of them have the haplogroup R1a.

    The Sorbs are Slavic, and the most of them have the haplogroup R1a.
    Everything you wrote is true, but Lower Saxony is not thousands of miles far away from Saxony where Sorbs today live. It is actually bordering region together with Saxony Anhalt. And I have posted a map of freqency of I2b with its peak in the region of Saxony-Anhalt.
    http://yorkyingers.com/dna_files/image002.jpg
    According to the same paper which states 64% of R1a for Sorbs, there is also 20% of I haplogroup among them, but it is not specifically said what subclade. I thought earlier that it could be I2a2 because they are Slavic, but now I am not so sure. It could very easily be I2b1.
    So if the peak of I2b1 in Europe is in Saxony (Saxony-Anhalt) it is very possible that someone of Sorbian descent has I2b1 haplogroup. Is he Slav or German by origin is totally different question. He said by his own that he is of Sorbian descent.

    yes I am sure that even though the Sorbs speak a Slavic language they are not necessarily fully slavic in that they migrated into what is now modern day Germany around the 9th and 10th century to suggest they did not interbreed with Germanic people in the last 1000 years is a bit far fetched.

    Ive read online that even Hitlers third reich with its Germanic superiority eyed stance on Slavs said the Sorbs were German people speaking a slavic language.

    No doubt i have Slavic and German blood in my dads side.

    BTW marriages between Germans and Sorbs were quite common all time through! However, the Sorbs managed to maintain their cultural heritage.

    Are you adopted? If not then your mother's mtDNA should be identical to yours.

    That's complete rubbish! Don't know who ever came up with that. I know that languages are not the best indicator for relation, but the sorbian language is definatly closest to the Czech language, in the lower sorbian language also with a lot of polish features.

    Numbers in Germany are just estimations, as no ethnic divisions are made nowadays. It is up to the individual to which culture he feels closest with. As I don't speak a word of Sorbian language and my last "real" Sorb ancestor lived around 200 years ago I can't feel very much as a Sorb. However my surname sometimes reminds me of it.

    I should like to know more about the origin of haplogroup I. It is a typical
    Germanic haplogroup. My grandmother 's family has this haplogroup
    although her family had not an origin in the north of the Netherlands, but
    in the centre of our country. I understand that the haplogroup I is the most ancient in northwest Europe (from the Mesolithicum). It has an origin in the Cro-Magnons in southwest France.

    I understand that it is possible discover the hair and eye colours by DNA-tests. Is there something know about the Cro-Magnon's hair colour?

    Is there a relation between the haplogroups I in northwest-Europe (Germanics) and the Guanchos on the Canarian Islands and Berbers?
    I see them as a kind of cousins of the original men in the northwest
    Europe.

    Mzungu mchagga, you are correct about Czech and Wendish, I grew up in a multi-lingual area (a lot of Czechs, Wends and Poles) who also spoke English. The Czechs and Wends could pretty much speak to each other without too much trouble and be understood, however Polish was a little harder to make out. A funny thing is that if you put a group of bilingual children together who speak different slavic languages, they will come up with some interesting hybrids.

    All slavic languages are linguistically very close, and even the south Slavs could communicate very easily with Czechs or Russians. It is supposed that all Slavs spoke one Proto Slavic language till 7th century AD.

    Cool i assume that you grew up in Texas? That is where the Wends migrated to in the States, as well as Canada and also the province of South Australia. Where im from.

    haplogroup I are Germanic tribes originating from area Kerman/Germania (sometimes named Aria) in Iran and Serbo-Croatian part of Sarmatian tribes also originating from Iran
    haplogroup I in Asia
    http://sites.google.com/site/thelineagesofasia/
    I would say this distribution shows passage of I from areas bellow Black sea and bellow Caspian sea to Europe through Caucasus. distribution indicates that the the passage is made next to the shores of Caspian sea which is logical route since east of it is mountain range...
    furthermore, based on shape of its current distribution, and assuming general direction of movement towards north, I would dare to guess that perhaps the spread towards north started from iranian province of Kerman from where its carriers moved towards north, north-east, north-west and south-east...

    Historical documents refer to Kerman as "Karmania", "Kermania", "Germania" and "Žermanya", which means bravery and combat. Geographers have recorded Kerman's ancient name as "Go'asheer" (Bardesheer).
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kerman_province
    the province of Kerman is more or less same as area related to term Aria, which explains Germans calling themselves Aryans

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Gr...KingdomMap.jpg
    The term Aryan derives from the Sanskrit word (ā́rya) आर्य (meaning:Noble), which derived from arya, the original Indo-Iranian autonym. Also, the word Iran is the Persian word for land/place of the Aryan[17] (see also Iranian peoples).
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aryanism#Aryanism
    haplogroup I1 has entered Europe via Caucasus
    distribution of haplogroup I seems to have arrived in two waves that correspond to German and Sarmatian tribes


    first wave was probably only I1
    while Sarmatian wave brought I2 mixed with second wave of R1a
    some Sarmatian tribes moved to live in Germany
    e.g. for Veneti/Veneds we know that
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vistula_Veneti
    similar story probably holds for Vandals who were probably I2a1 as attested by increased values of I2a1 in places of their last settlements (triangle Sevilla-Huelva-Cordoba in area of Andalusia in Spain and island of Sardinia)
    see http://www.eupedia.com/forum/showthread.php?t=25872 for details
    haplogroup I2 has upon arrival to Europe or even before mixed with R1a..in fact mixture with R1a can be explained with knowing that in iranian lands R1a was situated at most east in areas of east Iran, Sogdia and Bactria..
    comparing position of Pashtuns with small peak of I inside R1 area of Afganistan and Pakistan

    allows us to guess that I2, today dominant in south Slavs (Serbs and Croats), might be related to the small peak of I in that area...and that perhaps Pashtun tribe Sarbans is related to name Serbs..
    on following map Pashtun Sarbans are in green

    I would say it is perfect match
    common origin from haplogroup I also explains similarity of names Sardinia/Sarbans/Serbi/Suebi/Swede for culturally and linguistically different nations of today that origin from haplogroup I
    Peak of I haplogroup on northeast

    is related to Sogdiana

    In fact, there was also early settlement by I2 that came to Europe before other I haplogroups and probably before most R1b (except perhaps the Basque which were first wave of R1b)

    they probably arrived in Europe as a first wave of I2 (carrying both I2a1 and I2a2), in more or less same time as first R1b settlers (Basques).. and before other I haplogroups...

    their origin is however the same with Sarmatian I2a1 and I2a2 carriers that came much later carrying the same tribal names - Veneti/Venedi and Vandali that settled in Germany
    if you look map of haplogroup I
    you may notice that M26 (I2a1) in Britanny in France matches pretty well the position of Veneti


    Veneti in Britanny were probably celticized with spread of Hallstat La-Tenne culture...

    lack of R1a in west France indicates that the first Veneti came as I2 but without R1a
    while later Sarmatian Veneti might have been mixed with R1a already before entering Europe as attested by both R1a and I2 in both areas of Adriatic and Vistula Veneti... in area of Vistula Veneti besides I2a2 was also I2a1 of Vandals that eventually moved with sarmatian Alans and germanic Suebes to Iberian peninsula where they settled south most part known today as Andalusia..
