Goals


  • Resource to gain a clearer picture about the history and nature of the fascinating Y-DNA haplogroup J2, and especially, its sub-clade structure and the distribution of ethnic groups among the clades.
  • Discover where a lineage fits into the phylogenetic family tree of the J2 haplogroup and find new SNPs. An updated version of the haplogroup tree will be available trough research and possibily submitted for certification by ISOGG: Y-DNA Haplogroup J and its Subclades.
  • Increase participation especially in the following countries (and ancestry places): Turkey, Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Russia (North Caucasus, Murmansk), Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, UAE, Oman, Yemen, Egypt, Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Greece, Balkans, Austria, France, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, China (Tibet), Vietnam, Indonesia, Madagascar.

We cannot carry out research on relations in individual family lineages (genealogical time, private haplogroups) in this large project which includes the entire J2 haplogroup and over 1,500 members.
