    R1b1b1
    MtDNA haplogroup
    I

    Ethnic group
    Turko-Mongol
    Country: Pakistan



    Who were R1b1b1 people

    Mystery surrounds the origins of R1b1b1(M73) Y haplogroup.their modern descendants are mostly in Turko-Mongol populations.Their Tocharian or Yue Che origin is also debated though doubtful.Please comment.

    Y-DNA haplogroup
    R1b1b2a* (inferred)

    Country: Germany



    I personally think that the idea that R1b-M73 is somehow connected with Turkic-speaking peoples is actually quite plausible.

    Before there was a closer resolution of R1b subclades, it was speculated if R1b was connected with the Tocharians (ie, Indo-Europeans), especially given how the Tocharians also spoke a Centum Indo-European language (akin to Celtic, Italic, Germanic and Greek, but dissimilar from the Balto-Slavic and Indo-Iranic languages). HOWEVER, this has thoroughly been discarded because it is very clear that basically all Central Asian R1b is of the M73 subclade, and NOT the M269 subclade (which in turn is in Europe). In my opinion, if there is a subclade in Central Asia that is connected with the Tocharians, it is R1a1a.

    It's pretty shrouded in mystery, but this is a very good approximation of my own thoughts as well. Thanks Taranis!

    Of course, it raises the question of how, then, European R1b came to speak the language that apparently came from R1a peoples. That topic is a common one on this forum, and I don't think it has been resolved completely, but a sort of cultural transmission after living in close proximity at one point seems likely. When that point was is really hard to figure out...

    There is a kind of superstition in DNA fora wich contists in matching a single hg with a certain ethnolinguistic group, as if a monoparental mutation carried the language gen.

    In these days it's obvious that is wrong, but many people assume it was certain in the past, a few thousands of years past. We can imagine isolated populations, diseases and other epysodes, but humans mixed yesterday as today do.

    Saying that first IE speakers carried only one Y-DNA hg is highly speculative. Even if they carried mostly a single hg, we wouldn't know who were the true "intruders" of IE languages. In the same way, we could say that this/these hg's could be present in the ethnogenesis of other linguistic groups.

    If we take a sight at the Y-hg's tree we can observe that R is closer to Q than it is to I or J, but autosomal DNA says that most of R carriers match better with I and J ones than with Q's. It would be highly speculative to say that R's couldn't be IE's because most of Q's carriers speak a language that differs from R's carriers ones more that the latter do with I's or J's ones. You won't find too much people who buy this speculation, it seems that some "cheap" ideas are more healthy than others.

    I certainly won't discount the idea that the populations back then were admixed, probably to a large degree, especially where IE originated and there were a lot of peoples of different origins crossing paths. One phenomenon we do see is that genetic drift seems to have occurred, for whatever reason, faster on Y-DNA than on mtDNA historically. Another is that culture and language seems to generally stick with Y-DNA closer than with mtDNA. The result is that Y-DNA seems to more commonly have a one-to-one correspondence with language groups than mtDNA, and so we often speak of a haplogroup as having a language or vice-versa, even when that is obviously not the case.

    Say a language family is observed nowadays as being spoken by people with unrelated haplogroups A and Z. We may postulate that the original haplogroup was A, and consider ourselves to be right if the original population was admixed with A, B, and C, or wrong if it was in fact X, Y, and Z. If the original populations was admixed with A and Z, then we would be wrong in postulating that EITHER was the original. Same for if the original population was D and E... although then we could still try to find whether A or Z was the first to join the population.

    In the case of IE, I think that assuming that neither was the original and it originated with both of them to be a bad assumption... the spread of R1b doesn't seem to partner well enough with R1a, and there are non-IE R1 subclades that make me hesitant to assume that R1a and R1b stayed together as a population. All said, I could be very wrong.

    Obviously, Y-DNA haplogroup - autosomal DNA correspondence tends to be poor. Also, I get your point, but R/Q is a bad example because their split is, I think, older than what we would expect the age of a language family to be.
