Jewish group of branches: R1b-old


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.


In R1b-old are R1b-branches outside the R1b-Europe and R1b-Z2103 groups. They are branches that remained fairly small in the middle east, which is consistent with a lack of founding father effects in the region after the start of agriculture.

A view on the present old branches of R1b-M269 (outside the European branches) can be seen on NGS results of Atanas Kumbarov's Website. On his site you can see both the Z2103 branch and the PF7562 branch (including the AB-071 branch).
