Jewish group of branches: H


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.


Only a few Jewish branchws are reported in the haplogroup H.
The haplogroup H has two old subbranches: M2826 and P96. This first (H1) is a larger haplogroup that has a significant population in India and nearby countries. In Europe the Roma group has a shared ancestor in H1. This is a nice example of a large male line population growth in recent times.

The P96 (H2) group is very small, but mainly in Middle East and Europe. No significant population growth or founding father effect is known. It is most likely that increased somewhat in population in the Middle East and along the Mediterrenean.

One of the two branches is H2. The second is probably H1. Both have not yet nearby matches within the last 3000 ybp.
