Jewish group of branches: G


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.


One of the questions is: what was the origin of the Jewish G-branches?

Characteristics: the percentage of the G-branches is large in comparison with most countries. Because of the number of branches, it is unlikely that this is a small statistical artifact. This means we should look for an area that has the following characteristics:

The only areas that follow these (or close to these) characteristics are: Caucasus region. Some areas of Turkey or Iran have weak characteristics of the two requirements as given above. The G1 groups are indicated by G-M342. The other groups are G2a.
