Jewish group of branches: J1-YSC76


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.


The J1-phylogenetic tree can best be viewed on by V. Mas. It is the most complete set as a result of Next Generation Sequence measurements. The tree can also be viewed on yfull. The time estimate is on both sites reported near 4500ybp, with an accuracy of about 10% more or 10% less. Two of the branches below are in the FGC8224 branch and the other branches are probably four branches below FGC15940. It is likely that the ancestors of L823 (and possible F450) came from the Middle East in the early period of Judaism. Part of them passed Iberia.

The descendants of YSC76 are among most populations in the Levant and Mesopotamia. Lots measured people can found on the ftdna project page of J-M267.
