BRANCH: L2

AGE: TO BE DETERMINED

LOCATION OF ORIGIN: WEST ASIA


Sparkling Paree is a fitting place for our group to blend into the woodwork. You have to admit we had quite a journey from central Africa, the Red Sea, Russia, eastern then western Europe. And finally Canada and the United States where we are today.

______________________________

From West Asia, members of this lineage have spread into Europe and back into Africa.

Today, geneticists have found it in Europe, Central Asia, West Asia, and North Africa. Its highest frequencies are in Algeria, where it is between 2 and 3 percent of the male population. It is 1 to 2 percent of male lineages in Kazakhstan. It is about 1 percent of the male population in Iraq. It is also present in Jewish Diaspora populations. It is 1 to 2 percent of the male populations of Italy, Germany, and the Netherlands.

Note: This branch is not accompanied by a major movement on the map, and research on this branch is continuing.
