Two T-P77 groups are close together (see also T-P77-1st-bb. They are 10 markers (out of 67) different.

In the Iberian dataset of Adams et al. we also find 5 persons (out of 1140) close to this group (genetic distance of max. 2 markers).

It is likely that the ancestors passed Iberia, or came from the middle east and went both to Iberia and the Ashkenazi countries. Among the closest Middle Eastern persons are e.g. 194746 (Jewish from Iraq), and several people from Spain and Portugal.

The larger Middle Eastern group is a fairly close group.

It is extremely likely this group originates in the Middle East in 3000 ybp.
