Jewish group of branches: E1a


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.


This group has only one branch. The E1a-M44 ancestor (3800ybp) has several descending branches near the late bronze age collapse. One branch has descending branches in Libanon and this one Jewish branch.
