    Old Prussian (West Baltic) R1a clades

    Problems with Old Prussians are that they no longer exist as a separate ethnos or linguistic group, and that their genetic descendants for the most part no longer live in former areas of East Prussia. We also do not have any ancient DNA samples from the region, so we can't be sure whether West Baltic (including Old Prussian) Y-DNA was more similar to modern East Baltic or to modern Slavic. However, we do have FTDNA customers whose direct paternal ancestors originated from East Prussia. Of course not all of them were descended from Old Prussians, many were descended from various groups of immigrants who flooded into East Prussia throughout history.

    Nevertheless, here are 32 pre-1914 people with R1a from East Prussia (see the map of birthplaces in post #2):

    Many thanks to Artmar for great help in distinguishing Baltic from Slavic subclades:

    Typically East Baltic (modern distribution) and probably East Baltic (12 = 37.5%):

    Now question is - could West Baltic R1a be "intermediary" between East Baltic and Slavic?

    That is, could some of subclades today considered Slavic, be also West Baltic in the past?

    Do you have their surnames too?
    They are from ftdna?
    Say if Slavic clades had Slavic surnames and East Baltic had German/ Germanized Baltic surnames, then answer is probably no.
    Otherwise it looks like NE is blueer and SW gets more Slavic.

    They are from several projects. Not all of them are in "East Prussia Project".

    Many of them are for example in "Germany Project", but not in "East Prussia".

    Often there is German first name, but Non-German surname (for example Gottfried Golembiewski).

    This indicates that the person probably considered himself to be German (or his parents did).

    Reminds me of Polish politician Grzegorz Braun (Polish first name, Non-Polish surname).

    john doe (Germany as place of location, name surname not real)
    "John Doe" is from East Prussia originally (according to Artmar who works for FTDNA).

    But no exact place of birth was given - that's why this sample is not included in the map.

    "John Doe" is used when someone wants to remain anonymous - like e.g. in this case:

    Interesting, do you know how much Old Prussian dna did the West Prussians have; either from assimilated Pomesanians or East Prussian migrants? 4% of my ancestry came from West Prussia according to genealogy.

    I2a - 3 Polish, 1 not sure (Nath)
    N1c - 5 Polish, rest 14(?) Baltic/German
    R1a Baltic - I can see only 11. 5 Polish, 1 NN, 2 Baltic, 3 German
    R1a Pomerania - 1 Polish, 2 German
    R1a pan Slavic - 5 Polish, 3 Lau, Gutt, Pruhs German, but Pruhs potentially Prussian?
    R1a West Slavic - 2 Polish, 4 German
    R1a East Slavic - strange group, Skubinna, Czeranna, Grass. 2 Polish, 1 German? Skubinna any chance for Baltic?
    R1a unknown - 1 Polish, 4 German.

    OK, difficult to do conclusions :)
    No clear picture. As to Germanized Baltic surnames, they come from East Baltic clades except Pruhs. But is it because they are East Prussian Germanized or Lithuanians Germanized we do not know.
    Every clades have Polish and German surnames, hard to see pattern.

    What are possible options:
    German Surnames - interesting that only 3 N1c has German surnames, 3 R1a Baltic, 2 Pomeranian, 2 pan-Slavic, 4 West Slavic, 1 East Slavic, 4 unknown.
    German, Polish, Prussian, Letto-Lithuanian
    Polish Surnames - 5 N1c has Polish surnames, 5 R1a Baltic, 1 Pomeranian, 5 pan-Slavic, 2 West Slavic (only 2 of 6), 2 East Slavic, 1 unknown
    Polish, Prussian (could be also Letto-Lithuanian?)
    Germanized Baltic Surnames - 6 N1c, 2 R1a Baltic, 1 Pan-Slavic (Pruhs).
    Prussian, Letto-Lithuanian

    Interesting that Polish surnames here are more "East Baltic" (10 of 21 clades, ~ 50%) than German surnames (6 of 20, ~30%).
    Of course Germanized Baltic surnames are the most "East Baltic" (8 of 9 clades, ~ 80-90%).

    Probably we wont get anywhere close to solving all this - as usual - without ancient clades.

    That's okay. Still the results are 25/59 - 29/59 Baltic ydna with only 4/59 range, not too shabby if my eyes aren't deceiving me. Thank you :)

    I can totally see the genetic pattern getting jumbled up, since West Prussia was one of the first to get christianized and assimilated into the German-Polish community.

    I compared Y-DNA frequencies of modern Lithuanians to those in East Prussian sample:

    N1c - 40.53% (122) / 22.62% (19)
    R1a - 42.19% (127) / 45.23% (38)
    I2a - 2.33% (7) / 4.76% (4)
    R1b - 4.32% (13) / 15.48% (13)
    I1 - 4.65% (14) / 7.14% (6)
    E1b - 2.66% (8) / 1.19% (1)
    J - 1.33% (4) / 1.19% (1)
    G - 1.00% (3) / 1.19% (1)
    I2b - 0.33% (1) / 0.00% (0)
    other - 0.66% (2) / 1.19% (1)

    Total sample - 301 / 84

    So, compared to Lithuanians, in East Prussia there was:

    - 1.8 times less of N1c
    - 2.2 times less of E1b
    - 1.1 times less of J

    - 3.6 times more of R1b
    - 2.0 times more of I2a
    - 1.5 times more of I1
    - 1.1 times more of R1a


    ===========================
    And when it comes to share of M458 in R1a:

    Lithuanians (sample 127):

    R1a(xM458) - 100 (= 78.74% of R1a)
    R1a-M458 - 27 (= 21.26% of R1a)

    East Prussia (sample 33 + 5 unknown):

    R1a(xM458) - 27 (= 81.82% of R1a)
    R1a-M458 - 6 (= 18.18% of R1a)

    Unknown R1a - 5 (in total 33+5=38)

    Higher shares of R1b and of I1 represent German(ic) input in East Prussia, whereas lower share of N1c combined with higher share of I2a and a very similar or even a bit higher share of R1a, represent Slavic input in East Prussia.

    Pomesania (don't confuse with Pomerelia or Pomerania) was part of historical East Prussia, even if administrative divisions were different at some point. East Prussia = the original Prussia. The name "West Prussia" (or "Royal Prussia") started to be used much later, and it was originally West Slavic territory, not Old Prussian. There have never been much of Old Prussian DNA there.

    The regions of Kashubia (Kaszuby) and Kociewie were parts of the province of West Prussia.

    Here are Y-DNA samples of native Kashubs and Kociewiaks from Rebala and Wozniak:

    Y-DNA haplogroup - Kashubs / Kociewiaks:

    R1a ----- 170 (63.4%) ----- / ----- 89 (56.3%)
    I1 ------- 35 (13.1%) ----- / ------ 13 (8.2%)
    R1b ----- 24 (9.0%) ------- / ----- 28 (17.7%)
    I2a ------ 8 (3.0%) ------- / ------- 9 (5.7%)
    I2b ------ 3 (1.1%) ------- / ----- - 3 (1.9%)
    E1b ------ 9 (3.4%) ------ / ------- 6 (3.8%)
    J --------- 6 (2.2%) ------- / ------ 3 (1.9%)
    G -------- 4 (1.5%) ------ / ------- 1 (0.6%)
    N1c ------ 3 (1.1%) ------ / ------- 3 (1.9%)
    Q1a ------ 2 (0.7%) ------ / ------- 0 (0.0%)
    other ------ 4 (1.5%) ----- / ------- 3 (1.9%)

    Total --- 268 (100%) --- / --- 158 (100%)

    As you can see there are only 6 people with N1c in this sample of 426.

    This means that Old Prussian ancestry wasn't common to the west of the Vistula.

    These samples posted above, were collected from these two areas:

    That seems correct.
    A problem though is that we know there was Lithuanian migration into East Prussia. So, we dont even know if Old Prussians had N at all.
    Ok, we know from other data they had. There is an East Prussia specific N clade, so they must have had some N. But was it 40% like in LT? Maybe more? Maybe less?

    M458 share is interesting. Lower than in LT, much lower than Poland?

    Depends where in Poland. There are regional differences.

    I think that South-Western Poland has the most of R1a-M458.

    Wielkopolska (Greater Poland) and Upper Silesians have the highest % of M458.

    Kashubians have low % of M458 - most of their R1a is Z280.

    I'm not sure about Mazovians (to the south of East Prussia).

    A problem though is that we know there was Lithuanian migration into East Prussia.
    Yes, but Lithuanians settled mostly in what is now eastern half of Kaliningrad Oblast.

    More or less in this area:

    That's okay no biggie, . My #1 goal with this question is to figure out weather my 2% Finland/NW Russian Dna came from the Old Prussians or could I just safely write the Ancestral Component off as a "hyphenated remains" of Proto-Uralic Tribes getting absorbed by the Proto-Slavs; my 9% East European, 9%+2%=11%Wendish/Pomeranian. I'm afraid I didn't confuse the tPomeranians and Pomesanians unless the sources did that for me. Here is the sources to my guesses.
    According to the history of West Prussia, the Pomesanian and Pomeranians lived like cultural neighbors. Due to assimilation of the Teutonic Knights and christianization there is always a chance that the Pomesanian forgot about their ancestry and crossed the river west. This might be how you got the 6 Ydna N samples to the East of West Prussia ;).




    My Paternal Grandmother's maiden name is Krumrey and she can trace her direct ancestry to Johnann Krumrei and Dora Pahl whom lived in modern day Zlatlow, West Prussia. Apparently the Pahl surname came from East Prussia. This hints that at least some East Prussian probably were already making their migration Westward as early as the 18th century.


    But since the numbers are too little, I suppose I could write off that Uralic Component unless otherwise; if the possibility is true that Old Prussian were mostly R1a.

    Thanks for the clarification btw :).

    Zlotow (Flatow) is in the historical region known as Krajna:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krajna

    It was the borderland between Greater Poland and Pomerelia.

    Even the name of the region - Krajna - means literally "frontier":

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krajin...phical_regions
