AB-034

Jewish Y-DNA branch AB-034

Introduction

In 2014 an article was written on the basis of STR mutations and the relation to the Iberian Z640 and the Middle-East Z640 group. It appeared that the variability of the Middle-East group was largest, the Iberian was middle size and the Ashkenazi group had a small variability. This resulted in a conclusion that the descendancy went from Middle East, passing Iberia to the Ashkenazi countries.

The timescale of the Ashkenazi group was determined as short, despite of the fairly large size of the group. At the moment only two next generation sequence tests are done in this group with an average of 4.5 unique markers. The tmrca is about 620 years, with an uncertainty of about 300 years. At the moment no person of the two Spanish groups of the article are measured by next generation sequencing.

The Sephardic page of ftdna has 133256, Jaffe (Turkey) in this group.

One person who has his oldest ancestor in Brandenburg, 1758, Germany has a Spanish surname (Pino).

In the most likely scenario (at the moment) a Jewish ancestor went with the Islamic control to Iberia and had several male line descendants. One branch left Iberia in the period 1300-1400 and descendants became part of the Ashkenazi population. A few other descendants left Iberia later as Sephardic Jews, e.g. the Sephardic person with his oldest ancestor in present Turkey, and possibly the person who went to Brandenburg. In that scenario the other branch (with the Spanish descendants) remained in Spain (and some later to Latin America) and changed at some point to the Catholic religion.

This branch is in the J1-other-group of Jewish Branches.
