These groups probably originate from the north of the Middle East. The ancestor of the L245 (or Y2220) groups lived before the start of Judaism (4500ybp according to yfull). The L245 group has mainly branches in the north of the Middle East. A few lines left this region, e.g. Hoff (Netherlands), Swiss and some Italian and Turkey.
