Hi, I just received my results from national geographic and discovered my Y (which is Russian) is J-L210 (which I believe is j2a4b3 ?) does this mean I have Jewish heritage ? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

P.S. I am a little shocked as there is no known Jewish heritage on my fathers side.

From the categories I see in the yDNA J Project (http://www.familytreedna.com/public/Y-DNA_J/default.aspx?vgroup=Y-DNA_J&section=yresults), L210 contains a large Jewish cluster but is not exclusively Jewish.

I suppose you did a Geno 2.0 test. It includes autosomal results, which could be more indicative of your recent ancestry.
Also your raw data file may include results for Y-SNPs downstream of L210, for example Z482.

Yes Z482 is present as is Z492 , does that indicate anything ?


Oh, the autosomal just says Mediterranean, Northern Europe, West Asian. For the J-L210 it says it's origin is west Asian but that little is known about it, and that it follows Jewish diaspora patterns.

What is the origin of your Y-DNA line, Erik? Is that your Jewish side?

Yes, it is my Jewish side. They're from Bialystok, Poland.
