About us

This is a community page for members of R1a-S18681 branch which is found in Central, Northern and Eastern Europe. Our clade is dated around 2500 B.P. (common ancestor), lay under Southern Baltic R-CTS3402 branch of R1a haplogroup. See chart below: http://www.yfull.com/tree/R-S18681/

Our R1a-S18681 (or rather a bit older R-YP311 twig: https://www.yfull.com/tree/R-YP311/) and fraternal L1280 (mostly Central-Southern Europe) are located at the same twig with their own mutation Y3301.
Clade R1a-S18681 is not so huge against a background. It concentrate in particular in North-Eastern Germany and Western-Northern-Central Poland. A few samples are from Ukraine and Russia.

Distribution of R1a-S18681 (especially descendants of R-YP314 & R-YP1428 subclades) nice correlate to early germanized Polabians and West Pomeranians (Sukov-Dziedzice culture) who settled in present
 Germany in 6th century (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polabian_Slavs). So maybe we are a different part of migration of Polabian Slavs from their cradle till descination countries...
