    Mexican E-M35*

    It's unusual because at first family tree showed it as a separate third branch even saying the descendents of E-M35 are E-V68, E-Z827, and 1 unnamed lineage. I thought that before including these in the discovery tree they would ensure a full big y analysis.

    Mexican E-M35*

    Strangely enough the sample does not show up anymore on familytreedna's discovery page. Does anyone know what the explanation for this is, was it an error?

    News New L618 positive CTS1975 negative samples (-V13)

    Given the many near eastern L618* samples I'd say a Levantine origin for E-L618 is more likely. Especially since that is where the Cardial culture is first found.

    News New L618 positive CTS1975 negative samples (-V13)

    Another update: There appears to be a new Italian L618* sample. It would be great to know about the regional origin of the sample

    New distribution map of Y-haplogroup E-M81

    Yes sadly all relevant regions here (practically all of North Africa and the Middle East) have very few ancient samples. It is still possible though that cousin branches expanded into North Africa and went extinct before E-M81.

    New distribution map of Y-haplogroup E-M81

    There have been big changes for E-M81, this may warrant a new thread even if people are interested. Several basal Levantine branches now exist here. With 3 Levantine branches I believe that this strongly suggest an eastern origin for E-M81. This has been suggested for a long time but this is a...

    Mexican E-M35*

    The FamilyTreeDNA discover tree shows a third new branch under E-M35 which I believe is a Mexican sample judging from the classic tree. I believe it is new since I did not notice it before. I am surprised there has not been a FTDNA blog post about this, since it is very unique. Could this be...

    News New L618 positive CTS1975 negative samples (-V13)

    Update: There is also a new Georgian sample which is CTS1975 positive and V13 negative on the E-M35 project. Combined with the previous Armenian and Azeri sample these become very interesting. If anyone is knowledge about previous studies that might have had E-M78* samples from the Caucasus...

    Neolithic Refuge and Continuity in Transylvania

    Most modern L618 xV13 is North African, mainly the Egyptian and Algerian clusters. There are a few Italian samples and a few other European samples. The Egyptian cluster is not linked to any ancient samples so far though the Varna sample is shown as ancestral to the Algerian cluster on FTDNA...

    Neolithic Refuge and Continuity in Transylvania

    But that's not what we see. L618 xV13 appears to be practically extinct in Europe and only exists North Africa and recently Iraq and the Caucuses. This is what makes these samples surprising

    Neolithic Refuge and Continuity in Transylvania

    There are recent samples however, it would mean whatever bottlenecked V13 did not eliminate L618. Most existing L618 is north african or middle eastern so you would not expect iron age L618 samples in a place where you would normally find V13. I would have expected that L618 was mostly...

    Neolithic Refuge and Continuity in Transylvania

    This is very unusual. How is it that L618 xV13 populations existed as late as 500 BC but have seemingly gone near extinct in the present? This isn't the only case of L618 xV13 ancient samples that existed past the first population explosion of E-V13 ~2000 BC.

    News New L618 positive CTS1975 negative samples (-V13)

    The E-M35 project on FamilyTreeDNA shows 3 new samples that are positive for L618 and negative for it's only descendent CTS1975. They are from Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Iraq and I believe they are all due to family finder's new SNP testing. Their markers don't indicate any very recent clustering...
