The Afghan-Pakistani project welcomes all those who come from or trace their ancestry to the communities of present-day Afghanistan or Pakistan. People from neighboring regions of Iran, Central Asia, and South Asia are also welcome provided that their Y-DNA results overlap with communities within the geography of modern Afghanistan and Pakistan.
The haplogroups of the people of Afghanistan and Pakistan are diverse and show significant regional, ethnic, and tribal differences. Various migrations, invasions, founder effects and civilizations shaped the genetic profile of this region. As a transitional zone between the Indian subcontinent, Central Asia and Iran the region was from earliest times a meeting point of ancient trade and people.
If you have yet to be tested and wish to join this group, or if you have any queries, please feel free to contact the Project Administrators.
We look forward to having you with us!
