Jewish group of branches: E1b-V12


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.


V12 has two major subgroups: V32 in the south or Arabia and CTS693 in the area of Mesopotamia. All branches below are from the CTS693 area (Mesopotamia). It seems likely that this is the area they became Jewish.
