R-L1/S26 Y-DNA Haplogroup Project (formerly The Null439 DNA Project)
||Known Origins of R-L1/S26 (formerly known as null439s) are mainly in the south and central parts of England. However, there are a number of R-L1/S26's with origins in Germany, one in Norway, one in Finland, and one in northwest Spain. This tends to indicate the origin of the R-L1/S26's was somewhere in northwest Europe, and that R-L1/S26 came mainly to Britain with various Germanic migrations (pre-Roman, Anglo-Saxon, and Viking). All R-L1/S26's also have the S21 SNP which is found in about 25% of R1b males (the largest haplogroup in western Europe). S21 is found in high percentages in England, Holland, northern Germany, and Denmark.|
S21 is found in low percentages in Ireland, Wales, France, and Spain. Analysis of results based on key marker values shows there are two clusters within the R-L1/S26 group (as shown on the Results tab). The following phylogenetic tree shows possible connections between R-L1/S26 surnames within the two clusters.
