    mtDNA R1b

    I have mtDNA R1b (full sequence from FTDNA, checked with dna.jameslick.com). Any information about mtDNA R1b? There appears to be even less information than R1a... My maternal ancestor is from Finland and there is a cluster of R1b in the southern half of Finland. Thanks! :cool-v:

    The Atlantic Megalith cultures were R1b.

    The Atlantic Megalith cultures were R1b. (Revised) I've read before on this website of how the Atlantic Megalithic cultures of Europe were of the Caucasian Y-haplogroup G2a. This is ridiculous. This haplogroup has a minor presence in Iberia and a tiny presence in Britannia in modern day. The...

    R1b and Language

    I have read thoroughly the essay that Maciamo has written on R1b and I'm trying to match what is known philologically. He states that L21 equates with the Q-celtic (Gaelic) languages whilst U152 equates with the Italic and P-celtic (Welsh) languages. The population of the British Isles by L21...

    R-L48 in Portugal?

    Hello, I finally got around to getting my 23andMe test done and have some questions. My Paternal Haplogroup is R-L48. My father is Portuguese, but googling R-L48 people are talking about Germanic origins. Looking at the ancestry data from 23andMe it says I most likely have a French/German...

    Mycenaeans R1a or R1b?

    By the latest genetic studies, which haplogroup do you think the early Mycenaen Greeks represent, R1a or R1b? Greek being a centum language suggests R1b but Greek shares some features with R1a Indo-Iranian as well.

    Was R1b-V88 the culprit for the outdated "all R1b's are Basque" theory?

    So I only recently, about 3 months ago, decided to start reading up on ancient European genetics because the last time I had researched it (probably in 2010), the prevailing theory was: -There was a refugia in the Basque region and one in Ukraine somewhere. The Basque one was all R1b's made of...

    To what degree is it possible that G2a's are well adapted to high altitudes?

    So we know that Neolithic farmers, largely y-haplogroup G2a, occupied most of Europe before the PIE invasions. The current school of thought is that these G2a's were violently displaced and fled into the mountains where they took refuge. What if we were to approach this from a different angle...

    J2b as an IE lineages of the ancient Illyrians & Mycenaeans

    The new paper on the Genomic History of Southeastern Europe by Mathieson et al. identified the first ancient J2b2 sample in Europe. This sample was found in Middle Bronze Age southern Croatia, at Veliki Vanik and dates from 1700-1500 BCE. It has been proposed by archeologists that the...

    Hello! I'm a new member here. Ice might We

    My MtDNA is H65. And our FTDNA Y67 marker test is being done now on their Worldfamilies.net kit# 561193. There's a possibility a third great grandfather has had 111 test. We will know soon if we match to him. If so R1b P312 might be our group, futher broken down hopefully by our 67 marker test...

    Revisiting the subclades of Iron Age & Roman Age British R1b samples

    I noticed on Jean Manco's site that new SNPs were available for the Romano-British samples tested by Martiniano 2016 and the Celtic Hinxton genomes tested by Schiffels 2016. The six R1b samples from Roman Britain belonged to: - R1b-L21>DF63 - R1b-L21 (not just L11 as previously reported) -...

    R-SRY2627: I would more informations about it, plz.

    Hello everyone! I'm new in the Europedia Forum, and sorry for my bad english. I'm Braziliam with Portuguese roots, recently I had received as results for tests of my SNP Y-DNA, the Haplogroup R-SRY2627 by the FamilytreeDNA. I don't know much about my paternal lineage, that it must be Iberic...

    New phylogenetic tree of R1b-U106 (and Z381)

    I thought you might like to know that I have updated the phylogenetic tree of R1bU106/S21. Here is a preview, but it will look better in full screen by opening the window on the R1b page.

    New phylogenetic tree of R1b-U152 (and L2)

    I have been working for three days on a new updated version of the R1b-U152 tree. I had to split it in two trees as the L2 branch was taking too much space. I recommend that you viw the tree in full screen by clicking on them on the R1b page. I had already suggested three years ago that Z56 was...

    Southern Neolithic route brought Megaliths from the Levant to Western Europe

    I have hypothesised for several years that the wave of Neolithic farmers who came from the southern Levant through North Africa brought a quite different set of haplogroups and autosomal admixture than the Anatolian farmers that colonised the Balkans and Central Europe. There is ample...

    An ignoramus asks... Britain before R1B

    Hi all, I'm presently writing a book (which may or may not get published) about my local area. While I don't want to dwell on it too much in the text, the genetic origins of those who lived here during the Mesolithic and Neolithic - and Bronze Age, too - is hugely important. And it's giving me...

    Dodecad & Eurogenes admixture of Late Copper & Early Bronze Age genomes

    The Copper Age was a period of transition between Neolithic societies and the Indo-European migrations. Although the Chalcolithic started in Neolithic Southeast Europe and Anatolia, it quickly spread to the Pontic-Caspian Steppe, from where PIE Steppe people expanded cross most of Europe and...

    Beaker folk features in modern day Europe!?

    From earlier findings of Gerhard (1965) and Louwe Kooijmans (1974) until the state of the art research about the Bell Beakers, the description of their phenotype is very clear: 'tall, robust and most of all broadheadend (brachycephalic) and with a flat occiput.' My features are exact these but...

    Sub-type R1b-S7826

    I'm from Scotland and had my chromo2 done by Scotland's DNA. I am Y- R1b-S145 Pretani but subtype is S7826 which they say is relatively recently discovered so no information. Anybody know about it? My mothers line is H2a2a2 Pioneer. Any info on that is also welcome. Thanks

    Demographics, Caution, and the Orthodoxy: The Posth Study on Euro mtDNA

    If someone had posted here that mtDNA Haplogroup M had been present in Europe, they would have likely experienced the Internet Age equivalent of being shouted down. Why? Challenging the orthodoxy is never fun, for the person posting the new idea -- or for the people being challenged...
