From their homeland, members of this lineage have traveled to Europe and North Africa.
Today, this line has its highest frequencies in Belgium (11 percent), Liechtenstein (33 percent), and Switzerland (11 percent). It is 6 to 7 percent of male lineages in France and about 6 percent of male lineages in Germany. Geneticists have found it at trace frequencies of less than 1 percent across West Asia, including in Iraq and Lebanon. Multiple lineages in Jewish Diaspora populations descend from this line.
Note: This branch is not accompanied by a major movement on the map, and research on this branch is continuing.
