I'm new and I don't know if I'm posting in the right place but I've been wondering about R1b in Turkey. I know that Hittites were R1b but I took the National Geographic Genographic project and got R1b, m343 (Subclade R1b1a2, M269). We come from the Black sea in the province Kastamonu. My family has light skin and hair, unlike many other Turks. So I was wondering if you could tell me more of R1b1a2 in Turkey. The test said I'm most likely of Irish or Welsh decent. So could someone please explain how western Europeans got to northern Turkey or if i am part of a different, minority ethnic group.
Maybe you are a descendant of the Celtic Galatia in Anatolia?
just have in mind kastamonu comes from casta commeni,
and it was father land of comneni family
