About us

This group consists of people who all match significantly on 37, 67 or 111 markers and who are in a subclade of J2a-L26, primarily L24 and downstream. This group has a large contingent of Jews with a cohanim tradition, but we have Arabs, Turks, Europeans, Southwest Asians and the more far--flung matches are super valuable as we work towards our goal of identifying our greater clan's origins, migrations and divergences over the last 2500 years or so. As a bonus, we're having some success with finding actual named common ancestors. We're also incorporating all late-breaking news about our J2a* haplogroup so we can know our clan's likely travels over the last 10-15,000 years. If you love history and finding your place in it...and are a genetic match with any of us---or want to take the DNA test to find out...please join!
