Frankly, it takes a lot of chutzpah to put forward the country with the
lowest incidence of R1b in Europe (Ukraine) as the source of R1b.
My two cents:
I always say that genealogic genetics must be tied to some principles of documental genealogy: a surname was born at the beginning of the XI century in place A, then in the XI, XIII and XIV centuries it remained in place A, but in the XV century some bearers of that surname migrated to place B. In the XVI century, from place B some bearers migrated in places C and D, and, in the mean time, in place A it remains only one family with that surname. In the XVII century place A hasn't got any bearer of that surname, but place B, C and D has. Also, place C has the greatest number of bearers.
This is the journey of my surname.
According to your view, then I must say that place C must be the place of origin of my surname, because it has got the greatest number of bearers... well, thanks to a documental research I saw that was place A the origin.
