    R-L21 fixed in the Isles since EBA

    Since the Early Bronze Age, haplogroup R1b-L21 seems to have been dominant in the British Isles(at least in Britain). 20/21 Y-haplogroups are R1b. 5/20 are some M269 subclades that are very small, or the sample doesn't have enough coverage(ended in '1a). But 15/21 are P312(a2), out of which...

    R-L21 in Ireland not from the Bronze Age?

    I've been watching maps from this sitehttps://indo-european.eu/maps/early-bronze-age/And I noticed that R1b-L21 is not dominant in the British Isles throughout most of the Bronze and Iron Ages.Only in the Late Iron Age comes back in prominence. Before that time, R1b-P312(the ancestor of DF-27 &...

    As a result of additional information now showing on the Ytree.net in the MC14 SNP area, more details are now showing - which have enabled me to make an initial BIG Y analysis - to help us sort out which Cameron "stall" on the Ytree.net is which Cameron sub-clan branch. I have put a...

    Hello from a L21>DF63>CTS6919, A92-

    My name is Randy Highsmith. I am trying to determine where the HIGHSMITH name came from. It seems to me to be a uniquely American name. Some say we came from Ireland, some say Scotland and others say England. My FTDNA kit is B33208. So far I have tested at : L21>DF63>CTS6919, A92

    Updated phylogenetic trees of R1b-L21, R1b-DF27 and R1b-U152

    Time for an annual update of the R1b phylogeny. I have made 3 separate trees for these ever-growing subclades of the Celtic and Italic branches of R1b. I hope it's clearer than the older version. You can see larger versions here.

    R1b-L21 (S145) in Slovenia and Sicily?

    Having had a look over the Haplogroup maps I thought it was strange to note the 1-5% occurance of R1b-L21 in what appears to be Slovenia. Anyone know why this could be? Also, what about the reasonable occurance in Sicily? http://www.eupedia.com/images/content/Haplogroup-R1b-L21.gif

    Deep Y-DNA subclades tested in Northern Spain & Gascony (including R1b subclades)

    Begoña Martínez-Cruz et al. (2012) studied the frequencies of Y-haplogroups in the Spanish and French Basque country, Gascony, Navarra, La Rioja, northern Aragon, Cantabria, and northern Castille & Leon. There are 835 samples, making it the biggest and most detailed study for the region so far...
