Jewish group of branches: E1b-V22


The Jewish branches can be grouped according to their Y-DNA characteristics. These characteristics are often related to a period between 10000ybp-4000ybp. Some branches had a founding father effect in that period outside the Middle East which gives information on the location of their ancestor at the time of the founding father. For other branches it is more likely that the ancestors were in the Middle East, where, in most cases, no founding father effect took place and population growth was continuous. An overview of the Jewish groups of branches is present.


Two likely origins for the Jewish V22-groups exitst: from Egypt or from Mesopotamia. Both areas are known to have V22 populations and large Jewish communities.
