exogenous Roman era York 3DRIF-26 is J2b1-M205 and likely Middle Easterner

The years 2014 and 2015 did provide useful ancient genomes NGS data in an increasing manner (see ancient J2-M172 genomes). For J2 the year 2016 could not begin more exciting: Martiniano et al published a paper about nine ancient genomes from northern Britain: Genomic signals of migration and continuity in Britain before the Anglo-Saxons. As introduction to the sample of interest […]

J2a-Z6064(xZ6063) confirmed and new split of PH4959,PH4856 (upstream) and PH4099,PH890 (downstream).

See earlier post: J2a-L26* SNP found: Z6064? New seldom clade J2a-PH890 I have done analysis on the new BigY result of 410707 Qatar. He splits the haplogroup so far shared only of 14919/YF03482 Fryer and Pal-5257 Palestinian into PH4959,PH4856 (shared) and PH4099,PH890 (unshared). So the current path from J2a ancestor down to 14919 now is: J2a PF4610>L26>Z6064>PH4959>PH890 See Research tree link […]

Z39600, Z39603: third split under J2a-M319, so far Iberian

Analysis of two BigY SNP reports of FTDNA allowed to refine the M319 subtree. Kit N96398 Pastrana Advincula shares 48 SNPs with an anonymous 1000 Genomes sample from Spain: HG01781. Kit 280709 shares 44 of those SNPs and additionally two more with HG01781 only. I pre-registered the SNPs and defined haplogroups Z39600,Z39603 and Z39632,Z39622. The latter needs confirmation trough more […]
