View Full Version : R-yp276

Hi all,

I've recently been confirmed as part of a small, undefined grouping under R-YP276 - however I can find very little information on R-YP276 so I'm not sure how to interpret this.

Some people tell me my line has been in Scotland for 3000 years, some tell me I'm a result of the Normans, others say pre-norman migration, others say Frisian, others say Slavic.

I'm hoping somebody here can shed some light and help put me on the right track.

Thanks in advance

Yours is downstream of L448, and is labeled as Viking Heritage, which I think is a very reasonable explanation, it occurs in Scotland (including the isles) Ireland (more east and north, including Dublin) and most importantly Scandinavia, with other R1a-Z284 subclades.

And no its not 3000 years in Scotland, most R-276 descend from its child lade R-275, with TMRCA of 1950 ybp, so a migration from Scandinavia into Scotland anytime in the last 2000 years, I'd put my money on Vikings.

I have some R-YP276 members with deep genealogies in my Williamson DNA project that I manage. If you are in FTDNA, I would like to invite you to join so we could look at the age of this haplogroup compared to their genealogies.
