    Post Y-chromosomal analysis of common Jewish patronyms

    Using surname projects at FamilyTreeDNA, I have listed the dominant Y-DNA haplogroup for a series of common Jewish family names. Common alternative spellings are mentioned in brackets. Haplogroups that make up at least 50% of the total surnames in the project are in bold.

    Biblical lineages

    - Cohen (Kohen, Katz) : J1c3d (P58) [± 50%]

    - Helon : E-V13 [> 50%]

    - Levine (Levin, Levi, Levy, Halevi, Levitan) : R1a-CTS6 [> 90%]

    Ashkenazi surnames

    - Bacharach (Bachrach) : J2a1-L560 [> 90%]

    - Bernstein : E1b1b [± 27%], J1 [± 22%], R1a [± 22%]

    - Epstein : R1b-U152 [± 50%]

    - Friedman : J1 [± 25%], J2a1 [± 15%], R1b-M269 [± 12%], Q1b [± 10%], R1a [± 10%]

    - Goldberg : J2a1 [± 30%]

    - Goldstein : E1b1b [± 20%], J2 [± 20%] R1b [± 20%]

    - Greenberg : J2a1 (L397) [± 35%], J1 [± 22%]

    - Greenspan : E1b1b [± 25%], J1 [± 20%], R1a [± 11%]

    - Horowitz (Horwitz) : R1a-CTS6 [> 70%]

    - Oppenheimer : Q1b1a [± 30%], R1b-M269 [± 23%]

    - Rothschild : J2a1 [> 50%], R1b-SRY10831 [± 20%]

    - Rubin : J2a1 [± 30%], E1b1b [± 25%]

    - Shapiro (Spier) : R1b-M269 [± 50%]
