    Question How does one determine the Y-dna haplogroup for an individual?

    Here is the Y-SNP calls for Barcin 31 https://genetiker.wordpress.com/y-snp-calls-for-barcin-31/. According to the link, Barcin 31 is positive for A00-FGC27424/YP3511, A00-M8129, A0-T-YP1873, B-M8633-M182-M150-M6473, G-P287-P15-L1259-L30-CTS1180/PF3259/M3244, IJK-PF3500/M2696, J-PF4513...

    Question How does a new Y-dna haplogroup appeared?

    Newbie here. How does a new Y-dna haplogroup generated? For example like how does Y-dna A become Y-dna B and so on? Clarifications, please.

    I2a2b/L38 in Italy?

    I am trying to see if anyone knows anything about the occurrence of I2a2b/L38 in Italy. I belong to a subclade IS2488 which is predominately found in the British Isles. My paternal lineage is Italian, as is the surname. I have traced this back 200 years to Campania region. Does anyone have any...

    R1b-L754 aka R1b1 has split

    Over at FTDNA they announced that R1b-L754 has split because of a Tajik man from Sughd Province. If I am understanding them correctly the split must have happened in Central Asia. This clade is Pre-M269 and indirectly linked to the Yamnaya/Corded ware people...

    Famous members of Y-haplogroup J1

    William Jardine (1784–1843), a Scottish physician, opium merchant and trader who co-founded the Hong Kong based conglomerate Jardine, Matheson & Co., probably belonged to haplogroup J1. He was the son of Andrew Jardine (1740-1793), from Applegarth Town, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland, himself...

    Breakdown of R1b subclades by French region

    I have calculated the frequency of each of the main R1b clade in every region of France last year in order to update the R1b maps. I used Nevgen to determine the subclades of samples from FTDNA that were not confirmed by SNP testing. It seems that I forgot to post the table with the results, so...

    Mexican Y haplogroups

    https://www.nature.com/articles/jhg201267 There's an study in Mexico that analizes the Y chromosomes of "mestizos", thats is, the population that is the result of admixture between Spanish and Native American. The weird thing is that they consider them to be 93% of the population according to...

    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...

    Y-DNA haplogroups of Scottish clans

    In the last few days I have worked on finding the haplogroups of the clan chiefs of Scottish clans. Almost all of them have extensive surname DNA projects, so it was easy in most cases. The list includes most of the peerage of Scotland from Viscount to Duke. Highland clans belonging to R1b-L21...

    Wyatt Earp belonged to haplogroup R1b

    I researched Wyatt Earp's ancestry on Geni and found that he descends from Joshua Earp (1706-1771). The Earp DNA Project has a lineage descending from Josiah Jackson Earp (1761-1844) and his son Allen Milford Earp (1796-1862). It turns out that Josiah is also Joshua's grandson, so it is the same...

    Woodrow Wilson probably belonged to R1b-P312>Z30597

    Woodrow Wilson, 28th President of the United States, belonged to haplogroup R1b-P312 > Z30597 (a rare clade) based on the testing of a descendant of his grandfather, Judge James Wilson (1787-1850) at the Wilson DNA Project (Genetic Family ZZN). Wilson served as the president of Princeton...

    Y-DNA haplogroups of prominent leaders of the American Civil War

    The haplogroups of Lincoln and Grant have been known for several years. I found Robert E. Lee's lineage last year. In the last few days I endeavoured to trace back the Y-DNA of more famous generals of the US Civil War and summarised my findings here. I searched many others but was only...

    Y-DNA haplogroups of the Founding Fathers of the United States
