    Understanding Haplogroup L subclade L2A



    received DNA geneology kit for Christmas. Done tracing my Parternal line. Based on the information it is telling me that I belong to the Haplogroup L sublcade line L2a. According to research it says that Haplogroup L traces to India. I don't understand how this is possible since my fathers grandfather came from Radekow Germany.

    Any one have advise or suggestions. ?

    A couple more L2a's (which I believe is now called L1b1) posted here. It's generally thought of as being a "merchant from the East" haplogroup in the context of Europe, and I believe it reaches a peak in South Tyrol. I haven't seen a good diversity analysis of it, though, so these suppositions could be wrong.

    Haplogroup L originated in South-Central Asia or West Asia. Somewhere between Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and Uzbekistan/Tajikistan and Iran.

    Haplogroup L1b is the most frequent type found in West Asia, South and Central Europe.

    How could someone who is of german descent have a haplogroup which is found in India. Have you seen any data which suggest's there are german's with Haplogroup L subclade L2a.

    L1a, L1c, and L1b other than L1b1 are the main L subclades in India IIRC, not L1b1 (the new name for L2a, as I've mentioned). I'm not that familiar with how L1b1 got to Europe... it could have been during the Classical Age or earlier... but regardless, it appears to be most prominent among those on the southern periphery of Western Germanic language speakers, as well as some Romance speakers and others. The L Project has some Germans, but more Swiss and Italians. You may want to join that project if you tested with FTDNA.

    L2a for a person of German speaking background is perfectly probable. L2a does not appear in the Indian subcontinent - it almost exclusively appears in the German speakers of South Tyrol. Chances are your ancestors originated from the Tyrol and migrated northwards (Which part of Germany are you from?). I also took a YDNA test (my father is of Turkish origin) but amazingly my Haplogroup was the same as yours. Turns out I desend from South Tyrolese Anabaptists who were enslaved by the turks who eventually ended up in Cyprus!

    Ancient origins of L2A are from the Ladin people of South Tyrol (See Ladin Language in Wikipedia) from the 12th Century many of them had Germanized. L1's are of Persian/Indian origin.

    L2 is believed to be the bronze age Raetic tribes who neighboured the Venetic tribes - both the indigenous peoples of the region

    Yes I am with FTDNA and a member of that group! I am FTDNA kit no. 2700 and Chris know me well - what is your kit no? My ancestors were Ladin Hutterites who fled South Tyrol for Moravia and then were enslaved by the turks. they were eventually settled in Cyprus and then to the UK.
