Dear Project Members,

You can now view the project Y-DNA results in IE7:

Please use FireFox to view Y-DNA results at FTDNA.

Members were having problems viewing the data. I spent a bit of time
constructing pages so that members can view Y-DNA results in IE7.


Best Regards,

Ingenious to Europe

I have an exact match to the Atlantic modal haplotype.

I'm an R1b1c - This Haplogroup R1b1c is the most common haplogroup in European populations. It is believed to have expanded throughout Europe as humans re-colonized after the last glacial maximum 10-12 thousand years ago. This lineage is also the haplogroup containing the Atlantic modal haplotype.

I'm a U5 — which arose in Europe less than 20,000 years ago, and is mainly found in northwest and north-central Europe.

I can clearly say that I am ingenious to Europe on both my YDNA and mtDNA.

R1b1c10 (S28+)

R1b1c10 (S28+) is the apparent SW
German-Swiss-Northern Italian connection. Makes me curious about the
Amesbury Archer, whose tooth enamel showed he was born and raised somewhere
in the Alpine region, and the Hochdorf Chieftain, whose body was found
inside a huge, intact burial mound in SW Germany, near Stuttgart.

R1b1c (SNP-tested: M173+, M207+, M269+, M343+, P25+)

Kit N12956 R1b1c (SNP-tested: M173+, M207+, M269+, M343+, P25+)
The R1b1c10 (S28) Although sample sizes are relatively small, it appears to reach a maximum in Alpine Germany and Switzerland.

3) Genetics, Archaeology, Isotope Analysis, Linguistic and Historical Data and the Danes in England: In England to date one S28 - R1b1c10 has roots in Kent which may reflect Jutish ancestry from Anglo - Saxon times. All the other customers of Ethnoancestry whose genetic marker on the Y-chromosome are S28+ can trace their ancestry to the Danelaw of Eastern England. The haplotypes are highlly variable. The only consistency is inconsistency (likely due to the great age of the marker). A research sample for a village in Norfolk has zero S28 - but there are no Scandinavian town names anywhere in the vicinity. There are no Scots or Irish with this marker yet located. Falke is from East Anglia, one of the three areas of concentration of the Danish Vikings. Another is the area of Lincolnshire near the Humber River (Scandinavian place names abound here) where as…

M343: Direct Descendants of Cro-Magnon

Fast Facts

Time of Emergence: Around 30,000 years ago

Place of Origin: Western Europe

Climate: Ice sheets continuing to creep down Northern Europe

Estimated Number of Homo sapiens:

Tools and Skills: Upper Paleolithic

Around 30,000 years ago, a descendant of the clan making its way into Europe gave rise to marker M343, the defining marker of your haplogroup. You are a direct descendent of the people who dominated the human expansion into Europe, the Cro-Magnon.

The Cro-Magnon are responsible for the famous cave paintings found in southern France. These spectacular paintings provide archaeological evidence that there was a sudden blossoming of artistic skills as your ancestors moved into Europe. Prior to this, artistic endeavors were mostly comprised of jewelry made of shell, bone, and ivory; primitive musical instruments; and stone carvings.

The cave paintings of the Cro-Magnon depict animals like bison…
THE WESTERN ATLANTIC MODAL HAPLOTYPE

The Western Atlantic Modal Haplotype is the most common Y-DNA signature of Europe’s most common Haplogroup, R1b. Simply put your ancestors have experienced a dramatic population explosion over the past 10,000 years, probably since the end of the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM-that’s Anthropology-speak for the last Ice Age) that covered most of Europe beginning 20,000 years ago and lasting for 10,000 long cold winters.

R1b, and its most common Haplotype (yours), exists in high or very high frequencies in all of Western Europe from Spain in the south to the British Isles and western Scandinavia in the north. It appears that approximately 2.5% in Western European males share this most common genetic 12 marker signature and because of its very high frequency we always suggest that for genealogy purposes people in this group should only use our 25 or 37 marker test for their genealogy.

Anthropologists have been describing for many years that only a select % o…

Caggegi-Raciti DNA

I just got my dna results back from The University of Arizona, Tucson Arizona:

I've find out that I have:

On my Y-DNA male side I have the most genetic cousins found in Ireland and in Spain (R1b1c*deep SNP tested) (First appeared 30,000 years ago in Europe).

M173+ M207+ M269+ M343+ P25+

M126- M153- M160- M18- M222- M37- M65- M73- P66- SRY2627-

R1b1c* reflects Paleolithic hunter - gatherer populations that overwintered in the Franco - Cantabrian Refugium during the last Ice Ages.

I am of Ibero-Finnic origin.

I am of Ibero-Finnic origin. Ibero - could have come from Normans/Lombards or Argonese groups that made it to Randazzo, CT, Sicily. Finnic - could have come from Normans/Lombards or other Germanic groups Goths/Visigoths... my combo is U5a1a and R1b1c6. I have two daughters - one with blonde hair (that's now darkened) with blue eyes, and the other with dark brown hair and dark brown eyes.

Etruscans…

A team of geneticists from different universities in Italy and Spain undertook the first genetic studies of the ancient Etruscans, based on mitochondrial DNA from 80 bone samples taken from tombs dating from the seventh century to the third century BC in Etruria. This study finds that they were more related to each other than to the general population of modern Italy. Recent studies suggested a Near East origin (U5a1a and R1b1c6).
