J2a1-PF5172(xPF5169): third NGS available and new subclade Z40014,Z40015

J2a1-PF5172,PF5190 seems a very old haplogroup: YFull YTree v4.3 J-PF5172 estimates the TMRCA to 14,300 years. In May 2015 the first upload of a J2a1-PF5172(xPF5169) NGS result to YFull (BigY 217812/YF03340 Armenia) allowed to compare the novel YFS SNPs with the tur-7 Turkey (Hallast et al 2014) sample as well as get the above stated time estimate. The comparison resulted in […]

J2a1-S15439,L198: M419 NGS available and new subclade Z40067,Z40068 1

Since almost a year ago (see FGC16096 unites L198,L433 and L1064 under PF5169) it was known that FGC16096>L433>M419 and that S15439 and other equivalent SNPs were shared by 192731/YF03103 and two Dutch men (GoNL project). During the Christmas sale it was possible to fund one NGS BigY testing for the M419 sample (271420 Lieb Germany) thanks to the donors in […]

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 […]

More terminal position of former J2a-L26* Cluster F*

Position found trough a Y-STR67 match not in the J2 project being J-Y7708: J2a-L26>PF5087>PF5116>Z2227>Z6065>Y7708>Z39478?(xM47,P81) One of the last bigger haplotype clusters existing at the begin of 2013 (before Geno 2.0) has found an informative place. See one of my earliest studies Thanks to the early J2 haplotype cluster researchers Bonnie Schrack​, Angela Cone​, wo did the founding grouping. Surnames […]

J2a-Z6065: still much to discover for M47, P81, Z7532, etc.

Z6065 was first discovered in the 1000 Genomes Project data by Magoon et al 2013 in three Punjabi samples, one of them M47. In May 2014 the FGC Y-Elite result of KVRKP S.Italy allowed to discover a further split defined by the SNPs Z7532, FGC15782/Y13893, etc. and of the subclade Z7553, Z7503 shared only by two of the Punjabi samples.

Substantial new subgroups for Z467: S25258 and Z447,Z458(xL210)

As posted in the previous posts substream of the J2a-M67 haplogroup other new findings were possible lately. The most substantial refinement of the M67 tree was possible in the Z467 subclade using 8 BigY results, one of them (B1300/YF02101 Ireland) with additional YFull analysis, gre-77 Greek Hallast et al 2014, Sardinian #845 Francalacci et al 2015, 4 Genome of the […]

New M67 subclade Z28551,Z6268 so far Sardinian-Mediterranean

Like already posted in J2a-M67 haplogroup split by Z1847 aka PF5126 higher coverage Francalacci et al 2015 data made a re-analysis possible. One M67* paragroup FTDNA BigY result (kit 143924, possibly with Mediterranean surname origin) not positive for the known M67 subclades Z467, Z500 and Z7671) builds a new M67 sub-haplogroup together with two Sardinians # 846 and 847 (in […]

J2a-M67 haplogroup split by Z1847 aka PF5126

Since some time three Francalacci et al 2013 samples and in J2-M172 Project@FTDNA two BigY tested kits were in the M67* paragroup which means found not positive for the known M67 subclades Z467, Z500 and Z7671. The release of the higher coverage Francalacci et al 2015 data including a recently discovered more detailed substructure of Z467 (Z458 and S25258) and Z7671>S12459 […]

FGC16096 unites L198,L433 and L1064 under PF5169

(UPDATE 2015-05-04: three FGC Wael Y-sequences) Since the first Geno 2.0 results were known for the old J2a4i (L198,L433) and the yet uncertified L1064 clusters, we did know they were PF5169(xPF5174) which means positive for PF5169 and negative for PF5174. Since not many J2 subclades have more then two parallel “brother” subclades I suspected that J2a-L198,L433 and L1064 shared some […]

Three J2 found at Merovingian buriel site (Roman-Frankish transitional period)

Thanks to the find of Irakli Akhvlediani with post to the J2 Fb group and the translation of Robert Sanders we gathered this fascinating information. Het Merovingisch grafveld, in: R.C.G.M. Lauwerier & J.W. De Kort 2014: Merovingers in een villa 2. Romeinse villa en Merovingisch grafveld Borgharen – Pasestraat. Onderzoek 2012.
