Origin and Migrations of Haplogroup J1c8
Your maternal line stems from a branch of J called J1c8. Haplogroup J1c8 is a relatively young haplogroup that traces back to a woman who lived approximately 6,000 years ago. Her ancestors migrated into Europe from the Middle East as the Ice Age receded between 14,000 and 11,000 years ago. While J1c8 already existed in the west before the spread of agriculture, it likely expanded along with the farming populations as they moved west across the continent.

Today, members of J1c8 are found almost exclusively within Europe, and researchers speculate that the traces of J1c8 in the Middle East are due to eastward migrations of people much later in human history.

Does anyone know the frequency of this branch in the Balkans?
