    Ragnar Lothbrok's dynasty may well have belonged to haplogroup R1a-Z284

    I have checked Ragnar Lothbrok's genealogy to find if he had male line descendants to this day. It would not be surprising considering that he had eight sons and they became powerful rulers of their own. The main issue is that the genealogy is disputed. If enough Y-DNA lines survived, it would...

    Family Origins

    Hello everyone! I was wondering where everyone on this site comes from? When I ask this question, I do not only mean your place of birth but the countries where your ancestors come from. I am from the U.S., and one branch of my family tree has been in what is now known as the U.S. since the...

    Most Likely Periods of Entry of R1b-U152 into the British Isles

    I am a part of the Z36 branch of the R1b-U152 Y-Haplogroup, and I'm 99% certain that my paternal ancestry is British in nature. As U152's prevalence in the British Isles is markedly lower than that of S21's or L21's, I've grown curious at how exactly my paternal family would have gotten to...

    Retracing Agnes of Antioch's mtDNA lineage (haplogroup H1)

    Olasz et al. (2018) tested the DNA of King Bela III of Hungary. They also tested the mtDNA lineage of his wife, Agnes of Antioch, which was identified as H1 (either H1j8 or H1bz). We can trace her mtDNA through her matrilineal ancestors, then go down again on the daughter lines. Agnes of...

    Why do people still care about (distant) genealogy?

    I guess that most of us have a family tree, and even if we did not make it ourselves, there is surely a relative in the family that spent considerable time (hundreds, if not thousands of hours) researching in archive rooms to go back as far as possible in time. There is often some kind of pride...

    Retracing the mtDNA genealogy of Louis XVI (haplogroup N1b)

    UPDATE : a new study by Larmuseau et al. (2013) disproved that the blood tested by Lalueza-Fox et al. belonged to Louis XVI of France. Louis XVI s mtDNA lineage was therefore NOT N1b as originally mentioned in this thread. The genealogy below is still valid but for another, still undisclosed...
