The percentages of M81=M183 are high in north-western Africa. In a Morocco study it reached frequencies of 65-98% among the Berber communities. High percentages are in the bordering countries of Algeria, Tunesia en Spain.
It seems most likely that the ancestor of these branches became Jewish in Iberia.
No known SNP timeestimates have been reported.
The ancestor (M81) was estimated before as 8.2kybp. On http://www.yfull.com/tree/E one can see the M183 tree as M81. It is a tree that had many branches in the Roman times, about 2100ybp. The branches are spread all around the regions of Mediterranean.
The branches that are V65 or probably V65 are not in the same tree, but it is most likely that the history of these lines are very similar as the M81-lines. V65 has also a founding father effect near 2100ybp in the area of Morocco, Algeria. They are also listed on this page.
