Jewish group of branches: Q

Introduction

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.

Characteristics

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). Three out of seven branches in that group are Jewish. The others are from Turkey, Italy, Swiss, and the Netherlands.
