Bigger sample from Balanovsky 2 of 357 North Ossetians are R1a,underhill did not get enough samples
Agreed, the same case with Kurds 30 samples from Cilicia (South Anatolia).. thats far too low
I didn't use Underhill's data for the Kurds. Actually everytime I had R1a data with more samples for Asian population, I chose that one, since practically all Asian R1a is Z93.
Thesis of Underhill is generally full of mistakes. He also undersampled Europe. 1 data point in Sweden - Malmo (really?), one datapoint in Germany, one datapoint in Spain. He used wrong phylogeny, because Z282 was downstream of Z280 in his thesis.
But as I always like to find a good sides of any failure - he paid attention of those researchers who may have read the thesis, that other SNPs than M17 or M417 DO EXIST, FOR GODS SAKE.
L62 and Z282* is found in Kurdistan indeed, we have some Z282* people from that area in our project, as well as basal M420*. That would be great for at least one of them to order BigY or something equivalent.
Hello there, Vilnius welcome to Eupedia. What part of Tunisia did your earlier direct ancestor live in? I'm afraid R1a-Z93 doesn't have a strong hold in the country and is confused to the east of the country. However, R1a-Z93 does have a strong hold in Slovakia, and is uniformed by 1-5% around the country.Hello, I'm R-Z93, and I think that my paternal family came to Tunisia at the end of ottoman era in the country. My ancestor probably came from european country. I found a village bearing my name in Slovakia. Does R-Z93 present in Slovakia, in a meaningful way ? Is my theory possible to you ? Thank you !
