Y-DNA J Haplogroup Project
For Y-chromosome SNP M304 and all subclades (J1, J1c, J2, J2a, etc.) we like to achieve:
We cannot carry out detailed research on individual family lineages
- Resource to gain a clearer picture about the history and nature of this fascinating Y-DNA haplogroup, and especially, its sub-clade structure and the distribution of ethnic groups among the clades.
- Discover where a lineage fits into the phylogenetic family tree of the J haplogroup and finding new SNPs. An updated version of this tree, prepared by members of the ISOGG, based on the latest scientific papers, can be seen here: Y-DNA Haplogroup J and its Subclades.
- Increase participation especially in the following countries (and ancestry places): Turkey, Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Russia (North Caucasus, Murmansk), Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, UAE, Oman, Yemen, Egypt, Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Greece, Balkans, Austria, France, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, China (Tibet), Vietnam, Indonesia, Madagascar.
in this large project which includes the entire J haplogroup and around 2,000 members.
