Jewish group of branches: R1a-Z283


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 ancestors of these two lines were probably in Europe when they adopted the Jewish religion. The R1a-Z283 ancestor was among the pastoralist that brought the Indo-European languages to Europe, about 5000ybp.
