I am looking after my late step-dads DNA research for my mother, He was E-M35 but after one of the SNP packs L19 SNP pack, It comes out as E-CTS12227 , His male lone name is Pereira but is in this country as far back as we can go. Any good links ?

E-CTS12227 is part of E-M81 and one of its sub-clades is very frequent in Algeria, I would consider it to be the diagnostic zenatan marker. Show me the Y-STR results if there are any and I could tell you if he belongs to the zenatan cluster or some other lines.

Edit : I just came across the results in the E-M81 project, he does not belong with the algerian cluster

Thanks Squad. Does this place him in the Southern European branch, given his portugese name which migrated to UK via Jamaica in 1700s. We think there was originally an exodus from Iberia for Portugese Jews. Srphardic maybe?

hi Simon , CTS12227 is Berber subclade under Em81 which is holded by Zenata tribe especifically which existed in north africa since thousand years , Zenetes as they are called part of all conquests to spain from Morocco side in different era under different dynasties (amouites , merinides , movahid ,morabite ) which explain that many Spanich are holding same marker especially in south of Spain , the reason of leaving Spain i can assume it happened when took over their lands and started to kill all remaining Muslims and Jewish people except who converted as per the history , many of them ran away back to Morocco , for Spain all people who conquered were called Maure-Moors-moorish .

Possible E-M81 migration scenarios from Northern Africa to Ireland and Britain:
Sack of Baltimore (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sack_of_Baltimore)

Anglo-Spanish War (1654–1660) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anglo-Spanish_War_(1654%E2%80%931660))

Do you plan to upgrade your Y-DNA up to BigY700?

E-CTS12227 is Berber Amazigh and probably "Zenata tribe" and "Ait Faten".
