AGE: TO BE DETERMINED
LOCATION OF ORIGIN: WEST ASIA
We're starting to approach home now. The Pyrenees, in northern Spain on the border with France, are where Larocques and possibly Rangers used to hang their hats.
Members of this lineage have traveled to Central Asia, Europe, and the Levant region. One descendant branch has the highest frequency of any male line in Western Europe. However, rather than a single movement across Europe, this lineage’s branches may represent many simultaneous and successive waves of migration.
Today, it is 48 to 52 percent of male lineages in Ireland. It is 45 percent of those in France. It is about 38 percent of the male population in Spain. It is about 8 percent of male lineages in Italy. It is about 5 percent of male lineages in Oman. It is 1 to 2 percent of the male population in Iraq and Lebanon. It is also 1 to 2 percent of the male population in Kazakhstan.
Note: This branch is not accompanied by a major movement on the map, and research on this branch is continuing.
