AB-480

Jewish Y-DNA branch AB-480

Introduction

This is a Cohen branch that originates in Jerba in Tunisia. In the article of Hammer et al. (2009) they had 13 samples of this group. The yfull time estimates shows that the branch migrated to Djerba in the time Carthage was still the capital of North West Africa.

The significant marker of this branch is M318.

The Cohen tradition remained stable in Djerba over a long period of time. It means that the migration of the ancestor took place near 0 CE or a little bit earlier. The oral tradition suggests an arriving date of 6th century BCE, see Djerba. History of the relation between Tyre and Israel and Tyre and Carthage makes this scenario plausible. More NGS tests might report more branches and an earlier date than the present oldest tmrca.

You can find additional information in this Cohen paper Hammer et al. 2009 .

This branch is in the J2a-group of Jewish Branches.
This branch is a member of the Sephardic branches
