    This is because any downstream mutations that you do happen to have are not considered for purposes of a basic haplogroup test. For example, at one point R1b was an "endpoint" in terms of testing....

    Male pattern baldness is inherited on the X chromosome.

    US General Norman Schwartzkopf (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norman_Schwarzkopf_Jr.) must be some guy with a black head who is from the North. At least, that's what his name means in German. Also,...

    What language(s) do you think those early male J spoke? Would it have been related to a hypothesized pre-Indo-European haplogroup I language, or was it something else entirely?

    I got Doggerland too:

    Latitude: 52.94445984199999,
    Longitude: 1.9909744139999965

    This isn't too shocking - I have a lot of British Isles ancestry (including Glasgow, Campbeltown, and County...

    I've noticed a recent upswing in the use of "Britishisms" in US speech. Specifically, the term "sit an exam" (as opposed to "take an exam") seems to be becoming much more common in the US than it...

    I'd say it sounds closest to Indo-Iranian languages, specifically Farsi. It does not sound Slavic at all (not enough sibilants), and I did not detect sufficient cognates to perceive it as a Germanic...

    There's nothing in your result that says that you are not Lombard. If you like Lombard culture or language there is no reason that you cannot celebrate it. The chances are near 1 that you have...

    What about Italy and especially central and southern Italy where there has been a lot of mixing of R1b and J clades? People from there don't look anything like the photos at the top.

    You're welcome. What I mean by being culturally aligned with Europe isn't easy to explain concisely, but it involves many or most of the following:

    1) Emphasizing the importance of democracy.

    I have been to Newark, Camden (NJ), Baltimore, Southeast DC, and the South Side of Chicago (the "baddest part of town"). These are all diverse places in the USA that happen to be mostly black. They...

    It's important to consider that the author's concept of who was a "foreigner" and our own perception were not necessarily the same. Nowadays, we usually think in terms of nation-states where a person...

    To be clear, I think the major issue wasn't religion (or even Christianity) per se, but organized, state-sponsored religion in which dissident thought was discouraged. There have been plenty of great...

    With the amount of mixing and migration that has happened over the past few thousand years, I would say that the likelihood that a random European has absolutely zero Semitic ancestors anywhere in...

    CHG is Caucasus Hunter-Gatherers.

    Your WHG is around 9%, which is pretty low but still within a plausible range for a European, but we still aren't at that point in terms of the science to be able...

    You're very welcome!

    I mentioned Celts, Romans, and Visigoths because they were groups that had a major impact on Spain and also carried significant amounts of R1b. As for Visigoths being under...

    Another thing that these calculators do is help you interpret traditional genealogical data. A small amount of my ancestry (as traditionally documented) comes from Germany via Pennsylvania. Admixture...

    Welcome to Eupedia! It is certainly possible that you have European ancestry, but I don't think it can be established at this point. What seems more likely is that you have Indo-European ("Steppe",...

    Your y-DNA is R-P312*, which means that you do not belong to any of the primary downstream mutations of R-P312, including DF27, L21, or U152. This makes it a little harder to match your line. Your...

    That's right. As much as I want to imagine myself as a descendant of tree-hugging Mists of Avalon type Celts, I know that it is a gross simplification and even a distortion of reality. Celts were...
