Linking the Y-chromosomal haplotype from a high medieval (11601421) skeleton from a Podlazice excavation site with living descendants

"Abstract

DNA analysis of skeletal remains from a high medieval Podlazice burial site (11601421) yielded data for lineage markers (mtDNA, Y-chromosome). We linked one of the retrieved Y-haplotypes with a group of individuals bearing the surname Dusanek (Duschanek). One of the individuals even confirmed that his ancestors lived close to the Podlazice cloister, which they moved from after the Thirty Years' War (16181648) to another area of Bohemia. The differences in haplotypes (genetic distances) between the skeleton and the closest matches are 15 and 16 Y-STRs of 17 tested using the Y-filer kit (ThermoFisher Scientific). These findings are consistent with our theory that the skeletal remains belong to an individual belonging to the same family lineage as the tested individuals"
