    Post Dustin Hoffman may belong to Y-haplogroup J1

    Actor Dustin Hoffman had participated in the PBS TV series Finding Your Roots, in which we learned that he belonged to Y-haplogroup J. Browsing through the Jewish Y-DNA Project, I found two individuals with the surname Hoffman, one from Poland and one from Kiev, Ukraine. Dustin's genealogy confirms that his great-grand father came from Kiev, and it is therefore highly likely that this corresponds to this lineage. If that is the case he would belong to haplogroup J1-Z18271 (downstream of ZS227), which corresponds to the lineage of the Y-chromosomal Aaron.
