hi I have created this thread to discus about r1b df19, it is geographically very germanic and within the germanic area of influence historically yet it is near to gallo-roman haplogroups genealogically so I am confused about its belonging and origin.Please discus this and reply to it! Thanks
Well theres no discussion from anyone so I researched myself a bit about R-DF19 it seems that its a Germanic lineage and spread from southern Scandinavia togather with R-S21, I1, R-L238.I got his information from FTDNA website.
I am glad there is a thread. I am an R-DF88. Here are two things that I learned recently.
This looked like an interesting article: The Dutch Y-Chromosomal Landscape. If I am reading this correctly. They did a sample/study of Dutch DNA and found no DF19 lines. Some do make a Frisian connection, so I thought DF19 might show up. This may or may not be meaningful.
Second, I was chatting with someone about my Y lineage from Eschelbronn, Germany. He seemed knowledgeable about the distribution of DF19. He said that there was little knowledge about Eschelbronn; however, there was a lot of DF19 in the surrounding area (Heidelberg is close by). Given my own DNA and what we already think we know, this might be evidence of a migration of some sort. Though I do not think there is a DNA map of Germany.
I am quite far downstream of DF-19, currently FTDNA has me at R-Z17121 although this is currently under review and so likely to move even further down stream.
My direct line paternal ancestry is English, as am I, and my path is:
