    Philosopher David Hume belonged to Y-haplogroup R1a-L448

    Looking into the Home/Hume DNA Project I managed to identify the ancestral lineage of the great Scottish philosopher, historian and economist David Hume (1711-1776). His genealogy shows that he is descended from Thomas Home of Home (1355-1427), and ultimately from William Dominus de Home, Laird...

    Iranic words in European languages.

    Which European language is closest in relation to Iranic language? Perhaps this can help us to find missing tribes of Sarmatians and Scythians among modern populations.

    Corded Ware / Iranic-Aryan split of IE?

    Thanks to this paper: http://www.nature.com/ejhg/journal/v23/n1/full/ejhg201450a.html and nice R1a maps: Can we see Z282 as Corded Ware culture and Z93 as Indo-Iranian? It could indicate Kazakhstan as Center of Iranic tribes before expansion to the South? South to Iran, Afghanistan...

    Bell Beakers were a multicultural phenomenon & trade network, not an ethnic culture

    Bell Beakers were a multicultural phenomenon & trade network, not an ethnic culture I have noticed that Jean Manco mentioned in her new book Ancestral Journeys that the Bell Beaker culture represents the arrival of R1b people into Western Europe. I have explained before why it is extremely...

    Light skin allele of SLC24A5 gene was spread by the Indo-Europeans (R1a + R1b)

    A new paper published by V. Canfield and his colleagues looked into the allele distribution of the SLC24A5 gene, whose A111T (rs1426654) mutation is linked with light skin pigmentation in European, Middle Eastern and Central/South Asian populations. The paper comes just two months after a...

    Origins of the Indo-Europeans: the Uruk expansion and Cucuteni-Trypillian culture

    The history of the Indo-Europeans is relatively clear from the Maykop and Yamna periods onwards, as I have described in the R1b and R1a pages on this site. The biggest question marks in my head at the moment are: - When did the R1a and R1b lineages arrive in the Pontic Steppe and North Caucasus...

    The ancient Huns belonged to Y-haplogroups Q, N, C and R1a1

    The Huns, known as the Khün, Hunnu, or Xiongnu in East Asia, migrated from the Altai to the Volga region in the 1st century CE, then invaded eastern and central Europe in the 4th century, establishing the Hunnic Empire (c. 370-469 CE). There has been an impressive number of studies...

    The Indo-European migrations to Armenia

    Eastern Anatolia has played a major role in the development of the Neolithic, Chalcolithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age. It is also one of the most complex region for population geneticists to disentangle due to its high level of genetic diversity. In this thread I would like to propose an answer...

    New migration map of haplogroup R1a1a

    After my new R1b migration map, here is an illustration of the R1a history. The pattern of migration completes that of R1b. You will find all the explanations in the R1a history section. Just one new thing. The chiefly Germanic L664 subclade is the only subclade of R1a that migrated alongside...

    Lithuanian N1c1

    Hello, The table in the Eupedia say that there are 42% of N (the most of which are, as we know, N1c1) and 38% of R1a in Lithuania, but I know the only primary source, an article Y Chromosome and Mitochondrial DNA Variation in Lithuanians by D. Kasperavičiūtė, V. Kučinskas and M. Stoneking...

    Is there a Eastern Europe y-dna database in English?

    I had my brother do an 67 marker y-dna test & found that he is R1a1. I'm now waiting for the subclade test to be finished. Our surname is Francis which after joining the Francis Family Tree surname board found that most are R1b's & English. Our closest match is with Johns/Tschantz/Schantz who...
