L1b is found at low frequencies in the Middle East, Caucasus and rarely South Central Asia. It's subclade L-M349 is found at low frequencies in Levant region and Southern/Central Europe.

I found a map about subclades of L. You can see geographic distribution of L1b and other subclades.

Also, I've just studied on a phylogenetic tree about L1b. I've used 37 markers y-str results of L1b* (L-M317) and L1b1 (L-M349) samples from FTDNA database, and I've used McDonald's individual mutation rates for each str markers on Murka phylogeny software working with the parsimony methods. You can get more information about Murka in this topic. http://www.anthrogenica.com/showthread.php?1827-Manual-for-MURKA-(phylogeny-package-for-parsimony-methods)

I've used those McDonald's mutation rates one by one for each str markers.

All of L1b clusters have a common ancestor who lived 10200 +- 900 years ago.
L-M349 samples have a common ancestor who lived 6000 +- 800 years ago.

That is the result of my study, phylogenetic tree of L1b.
http://i.imgur.com/B2Nl14a.jpg

As a result, L1b-M317 (xM349) probably originated between Levant and Iranian plateau, and L1b1-M349 probably originated in the Levant according to phylogenetic tree.

What do you think about that western branch of haplogroup L?

Also, I belong to M317+ L656+ and I've clustered with three Chechen and a Bulgarian samples under the 3500 years old Pontic/Caucasian Cluster, and we have a common ancestor who lived circa 1600 years ago. I have got three Iraqi exact matches but they haven't got 37 markers. Therefore, I couldn't add them to the tree.

L1b1* seem to correlate with the Kurdish, Lur/Bakhtiari and Qashqai Areas. It also a strong presence along the Anti-Lebanon mountains, the Caspian coast and the Volga region.

Here is a Dendogram for L1b people in West Asia and Europe. A bottleneck is argued for West Asian L1b as far as ~6200 (8700-2500) year is lost to be linked to European and Levant L1b.

Its also discovered that 42% of Lazs, 40+ % of Hamshins and 30-40 % of Eastern Trabzon are L1b. L1b is also frequently found in Migrelians too.

You're right, L1b found at high frequencies in the Pontic region and Southwest Caucasus. It also found at high frequencies in Mountain Jews and Avars from Dagestan. We need more Caucasian samples from FTDNA.

There aren't some L1b samples on the Rozhansky's L1b tree. There are 142 samples on my tree, but his tree includes 130 samples. I think, also he used an average mutation rate for every str markers, but I've used variable mutation rates to slow and fast each str markers.

Interesting that L1b found at significant frequencies in peoples who speak a different language from their religion.

For example, Hayroums a.k.a Hayhurums are Armenian speaking people who believe in Greek Orthodox church from Kars and Ardahan have L1b at significant frequencies.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hayhurum
That map is about Hayroum villages in Eastern Anatolia.
http://i.imgur.com/3C4yEai.png

Hemshins are Armenian speaking people who believe in Islam from Black-Sea region also have L1b at significant frequencies.

Also, Greeks from Tsalka (Azeri speaking people who believe in Greek Orthodox church) from Georgia and Greeks from Crimea (Greco-Tatars) have it.

That is y-dna results of Greeks from Tsalka (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsalka), Georgia.

And Greeks from Crimea.
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Iv9nzcVwtgA/TzwQmmVXF9I/AAAAAAAAAvo/cQhj-uazNIQ/s1600/3.jpg

I'm sure that, some L1b samples from Black Sea were related Greek colonization and/or Kingdom of Pontus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingdom_of_Pontus).
Look at the map about Greek colonies of the Northern Black Sea in 450 BCE.
http://en.academic.ru/pictures/enwiki/65/Ancient_Greek_Colonies_of_N_Black_Sea.png

And some L1b samples was influenced by the struggle between Armenian Apostolic, Georgian Orthodox and Greek Orthodox Church in Eastern Anatolia and Southern Caucasus.

ABsolutely you are right Caspian. L1b in black sea probably were proto Lazs or Proto Colhis tribes independently lived in pontic highland. As a result of Roman, Armenian Kingdomm and Georgian influence they divided into pieces. May i learn where did you get that y-dna results of Greeks from Tsalka?

And the hay roums are the colonies of Trabzon Empire in Armenia during medevial times. Probably L1b people are the proto laz or proto colhis tribe members, like Tzanis or Macrons in ancient times.

Proto-Colchian tribes may have been L1b, it also found at high frequencies Mingrelian and Laz people, but I'm not sure, because Caucasian cluster of L1b was younger than Proto-Colchis accordig to Rozhansky. Rozhansky calculated 2500 years TMRCA of Caucasian L1b samples. Proto-Colchis were in western Caucasus 3500 years ago. They have been Macrones, Tiberani, Tzanni etc. but don't forget that subclade also found at 20% frequencies in Moutain Jews and at 10% frequencies in Avars from Dagestan.

You calculated it 3500 year. Isnt it right? And one more thing that, there arent any BIG Y test in pontic cluster yet. The age is not certain. What we know is its at least 2500 years old. For now.

Mr. Igor Rozhansky, a Russian geneticist answered me about L1b.

His thoughts about L1b in the Caucasus, Anatolia and Europe.


Dear Aras,

I'm writing directly to your e-mail address because attached files are somewhat big for handling with personal message in the forum. These are trees made for 37 marker haplotypes from your spreadsheets as well as from the L haplogroup FTDNA project.I have calculated them by using PHYLIP software, Fitch-Margoliash algorithm. MEGA 5 software was used for graphics editing. TMRCA have been calculated with the hand-made calculator in MS Excel format. You can publish these diagrams freely with the reference to my authorship. It took some time to prepare them because of my quite busy schedule.

As for your question about so-called Pontic cluster, it looks rather mysterious one. This cluster is unusually young for genealogical lineages from Anatolia, just 2400±280 ybp, compared with >4000 ybp for branches of E1b1b, J1, J2 and R1b haplogroups in the same region. It is very likely, that its ancestor came from some distant place. If we compare the L1b Pontic cluster with lineages from Georgia and North Caucasus, several branches of haplogroup G2a and show similar TMRCA and rather close geographical distribution. Both G2a and L1b are spread in Europe, albeit in low frequencies, and their TMRCA (between 8000 and 9000 ybp) are very close.

I suspect, both have been present in the first Neolithic settlers in Europe, but later they have been suppressed and, in part, displaced by the new wave of migrants, particularly bearers of the Corded Ware and Bell Beaker cultures. Those "Old Europeans" who have been pushed to Caucasus Ridge, had hard times, and their recovery started rather lately. Probably, they have brought Kartvelian languages to Caucasus from Europe (?), because these languages started to expand in the same time, that is the in middle of the 1st millennium BCE. Powerful Persian and Hellenistic kingdoms prevented from the southward spread of these new tribes, therefore Pontic cluster of L1b and Caucasian branches of G2a are rare in the Near East. This is only a proposition. We need more data, especially from ancient DNA.

Bear regards.
Igor Rozhanskii.

His thoughts about L1b in the Caucasus, Anatolia and Europe.


In my opinion he neglect the L1b in Levant. Moreover most of the L1b in Europe belong to M349 subsclade which is not found frequently in Eastern Black Sea and Caucasus. TMRCA calculation might be wrong for 2500 years. We need SNP calculation. A Tsalka pontic greek bought a BIG Y so far. We need some more from lazs, Hamshins and Trabzon and yours as well.

In my opinion pontic cluster should be investigated with Lubanese and Assyrian clusters rather then european ones. Because autosomal results usually shows 3-4 oracle as combination of Georgian + Lubanese Druzis (or Cypriots)+ Armenians

Caspian
04-26-2015, 12:12 PM
I also think that the L1b was originated in Levant or Mesopotamia. Oldest clusters are located between Levant and Iran in the some phylo trees.

He thinks European L1b samples (M349) have a similar TMRCA with Neolithic G2a in the Europe. Probably, they were related with Neolithic farmers in the Near East.
(Neolithic G2a was originated in Near East)

He is right about that TMRCA of Anatolian L1b samples are so younger than other haplogroups in the Anatolia. It went from some distant place. Also, he thinks that the Caucasian L1b samples have a similar TMRCA and geographic distribution with G2a's Caucasian branches (G2a1 and its down clades).I doubt it.

I also wonder that where did L1b come from to Caucasus.
My autosomals results also shows as combination of Georgia (or Abkhasia, Ossetia) + Northern Mesopotamia/Levant/Armenia/Iran + Central Asia (Influence of Turkic speakers)

Did it come from the south?

Anabasis
04-26-2015, 12:25 PM
What i see that L1b is found with G2a-M406 rather then Caucaisan branches like P303. In my opinion M406, L1b and some branches of J2 might moved togather. But i have not idea where those branches have intersected.

There is also 37 markers order of my new match this time. His 37 markers results probably will be uploaded after one month. I am excited about his 37 markers. If there are max. 2 or 3 mutations (on fast markers) in our 37 markers it means we have certain common ancestor last 500-1000 years.

A Tsalka pontic greek bought a BIG Y so far.

Hi all!

I registered to this forum for the only reason - to meet you in this topic about L1b-M317. I'm Pontic Greek from Tsalka and one of Admins of FTDNA Pontic Greek DNA project (https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/russiangreeks/about). By the end of the year we will have more than 60 Y12 test results for orthodox pontic greeks from Tsalka and pontiaka (romeyka) speaking muslims from Trabzon area. We also have another 80 Y17 test results made in laboratory in Moscow, Russia. More than 20% of all the results are L1b-M317. The frequency is very high and is the highest among all other nations (hemshins, lazs, megrels, etc.), and this gives us a lot of material to research.

Moreover we bought five BigY tests and four of them are ready, you can see also YFull results based on those BigY tests at their Ytree (http://yfull.com/tree/L/) - a new terminal SNP PH2079 under M317 was found with TMRCA calculated of 3000 ybp. We are also in contact with Mr. Rozhansky and Mr. Klyosov in order to make more detailed interpretation as soon as we get all the data (we are very enthusiastic to find out the roots for the L1b-M317 ancestors in Pontic region).

We would like to invite you into discussion about this interesting L1b-M317 haplogroup and to help us with making FTDNA Y-DNA and BigY tests for hemshins, lazs, megrels and other nations with L1b-M317 for comparison. It would be also interesting to compare results with M349 guys.

We will also appreciate sharing your thoughts and ideas on how should we move on with the testing having limited financing - making many cheap Y12 tests (going widespread) or several expensive BigY test from different nations (going deeper)?

Thanks.

Sincerely,

Laert

Best way is having BIG Y test. Hg L is not so common thats why i dont think that FTDNA will prepear SNP pack for HG L as far as there are not so many known SNPs and subscades for HG L.

You might also consider Geno 2.0 Next Gen in lieu of a SNP pack, it is on sale for $150 right now and tests a decent amount of L SNPs, plus you would get autosomal and mtDNA information as a bonus. BigY though would be best if you can afford it.

There are still a huge gap between pontic cluster(3000-3200 years old) and M317 (18000 years old) . More full sequence Y test is reiquired to solve the migration route of west asian - european M317 which is approximately 18k years old.
Levant L1b s from Maronites, Druzis or Syrians, Armenians, Assyrians would be nice to have FSY test. On the other hand there are not any M349 sample in Yfull too. There arent any L2 sample either which seems unique to Europe. There are stiill long way to solve puzzle. At least for now, we almost know many thing (although Migrelian's or Lazs' L1bs havent tested FSY) about L1b in Black Sea region of Turkey.

In my opinion L1b-M317 is neolethic clade of L in west asia. I m open to suprises :)

ISOGG Tree and Yfull tree of HG L is updated.
Unfortunately, YFull still doesn't have a single example of L-L595, the earliest known offshoot of L. A member of L-L595 is in my project but is not interested in spending any more money on DNA testing.

You would need two L-L595 samples to get a TMRCA within the subgroup. What the next upgrade will hopefully show is the split of the big chain of 264 SNPs (currently all listed as L) between L and L1, to give the TMRCA of L1 and L2. My prediction is about 30,000 ybp.

Thanks Mr. Gareth. I would like to learn your assumptions on the spread of L2 and L-M317 separately. L2 seems paleothic clade of L in Europe. But whats your idea about the M-317? Is it effect of Iranian Platue on West Asia during neolethic or it came West Asia in later migrations? Could L1b involved in Neolethic revolution? Or just later migrants of south Asia during middle or late neolethic? Any idea?

L-M317 has lots of branches and we don't know yet how they all fit together. I think the TMRCA of L-PH8 and L-M349 is around 13,000 years ago but their spread into the Pontic and Mediterranean areas could be neolithic or bronze age. Now that we know that L-M27 (old L1) and L-M357 (old L3) connect together as L1a (L-M2481, YFull's TMRCA is 17,400 ybp) I don't see any need to persist with a South Asian origin for the whole of L-M22. The origin could be almost anywhere in West Asia, the timescales allow for multiple migrations.

I've recently had my Y Hg tested L2* M317 by 23andme (ISOGG 2009 tree, making it L1b I believe). I am have a very English family tree. I trace my surname line to South Oxfordshire, England circa 1790.

I m here whenever you need a help. It would be nice to see your Y str results but in my opinion instead of having STR test it would be better to have full sequence test of Y chromosome like Ftdna-Big Y test or FGC- Y elite2. FGC would be better as far as FTDNA does not give BAM file anymore which may place you in a yfull tree (https://www.yfull.com/tree/L/)

In my opinion you are L-M317 > M349 but another subsclade under M317 is possible. If you clustered in pontic cluster (Ph8) your ancestry might went to england during Roman empire but L history in europe is much more older. M349 seems a neolethic clade in europe.

Welcome to the forum.

I'am happy when I see a new L-M317 person, because this is a rare y-dna haplogroup. L1b is western branch of haplogroup L and mostly found in West Asia and Central and South Europe. Your y-dna haplogroup may has been result of migrations of Early Neolithic Farmers from West Asia to Europe, like G2a, T and E1b in Europe in my opinion. This is only my guess. Because, we haven't got any ancient L1b sample yet. If an ancient L1b or L sample is found in the future, we may face a surprise.

I agree with Anabasis about your paternal ancestor having emigrated from the Anatolia to Europe during Roman Empire or emigrated from Northern Caucasus with Alans if you belong to L1b's specific Pontic Cluster. We have some German, Bulgarian, Romanian, Austrian and Slovenian L1b samples in Europe who belongs to L1b's pontic cluster.

Thank you for your welcome, and I'm pleased to be the far NW European representative on this incredibly helpful thread. I feel very privileged to have this marker, and quite bewildered. I'll consider a Big Y / Y elite test in the future. I want to see how prices go. For now, the Y111 will have to do. I trace my surname line (not that they always follow the Y) back on paper eight generations to Berkshire, England, during the 1740s. When I have my Y111 data on FTDNA, I hope that someone can give me a fresh prediction.

My Y111 results are in. Kit 491864 provenanced to my surname ancestor John Brooker, who lived at Long Wittenham, in the Thames Valley, England, during the 1740's. Predicted so far L M20. It has been allocated to the "29 L-M317 (ISOGG L1b* ) not clustered" group. It matches with a nearby result (only 32 miles away, and the only other predicted M317 in the L group for the UK), belonging to another surname, that has produced another two other matches on FTDNA outside of the group record, one at Y37. 92% confidence at 16 generations. All three matches (2 x Y12, 1 x Y37) belong to the same English surname (not Brooker).

This seems to be suggesting that all FTDNA recorded British L1b's are linked, perhaps within the past 400 - 600 years? I'm new at this, and it's late, and I need to go to bed. Any thoughts?

Copied from the FB Group:


I now have my results for my Y111. It confirmed the 23andMe test for M20. The 23andMe test terminated at M317. My FTDNA kit number is: 491864. FTDNA did actually provide some matches - the other unclustered predicted M317 in England is a match. I have talked to it's owner. It has lead me so far to two Y12 results that both originate with the Chandler surname in Hampshire, England. A seperate Y37 result from Australia has a genetic distance of 3, but also descends from Chandler of Hampshire.

There are three L M20 results from Y12 clustered on the Chandler Project that are at 12 markers, two perfect to mine. The record goes back to a Thomas Chandler, that during the 1740's, lived only 32 miles from my ancestor John Brooker. The Chandler Surname Project has grouped them as Group 10:

http://chandlerfamilyassociation.org/chandna.html#gp10

Therefore they appear to be connected to my Brooker line through a NPE. Looking at comparison charts with my inexperience, I'm guessing TMRCA between myself and them to be 300 to 600 years ago.

That L M317 is so very rare in the UK, to find this match, suggests to myself that a common ancestor may have moved to Southern England around that time period.

As a novice, I welcome any discussion or comments. A Big Y will follow.

Yes cousin, STR data is not a reliable indicator of TMRCA. None-the-less, your and Gareth's suggestions are incredibly interesting to me. This is exactly the kind of genetic genealogy that attracts me. Here I am, an East Anglian, and Englishman, with a pretty comprehensive recorded family tree - overwhelmingly East Anglian, 100% on the face of it, English.

Yet (with all reservations and uncertainty taken into account), if I was able to trace back on my paternal lineage, most likely based on the meagre evidence and results from unreliable calculators; most likely, my Y lineage, by somewhere between 1,500 years before present, and 3,000 years before present, lived somewhere between Anatolia, Afghanistan, the Caucasus, and Arabia. That sounds very uncertain, but I'm so pleased with it. It stirs my imagination. My Y ancestors may have lived in an incredibly interesting age and region.

I'd take that any day over a Viking or Celt Y ancestor. Thank you.

My Big Y results are in. You can now see what this NW European L M20 looks like both at Y111 and Big Y. A few surprises. At FTDNA on the Y Haplogroup L. Kit 491864.

I have a newly reported terminal SNP of SK1214. Gareth's initial analysis suggests that this is a line that split away from SK1212 and subsequently the Pontic greek L-PH8, 13,000 years before present.

To fill in some detail: of the 70-odd SNPs shared by all the 5 L-PH8 (Pontic) Big Y men but not the two L-M349 men, Norfolk L-M20 shares only a handful - SK1212, Y16370, Y16385, Y16390, Y16395 and a few that YFull haven't given names to.
So his line splits from the Pontic line almost as soon (within 1000 years or so) after it split from L-M349. Instead, Norfolk has 90 novel SNPs all to himself plus one named one, SK1214.
Approximate timings are: 14,000 ybp, L-SK1212 splits from L-M349, 13,000 ybp L-PH8 splits from L-SK1214.
With a TMRCA of 13,000 yrs L-SK1212 is the oldest 4th-tier subclade of L, much older than L-M349 (TMRCA approx 8,000 ybp) L-M357 (8,400 ybp) and L-M27 (6,800 ybp). What civilisations were flourishing in 11,000BC?

I'll revise that following a little research. The TMRCA (to my current knowledge) is too early for any known agricultural event. Instead, I'm going to propose the fluctuations in climate towards the end of the last glaciation period.

L-M27 (L1a1) and L-M357 (L1a2) are connected by M2481 (new L1a). T-M317 and T-M2481 were "formed" 18,400 years ago. At this level some of the TMRCA dates are several thousand years after the formed dates, in DNA terms this means long chains of equivalent SNPs.

This morning's news is that kit #361905 has joined the L Project and I have created a new L-SK1214 cluster.

Hi
What You think about L1b-Pontic cluster - Chaldes connection. The iron age presence of Chaldes is well attested in that region. Chaldes ( Khaldes/Halts ) survived until Middle Ages. They were neither IE, neither Kartvelian/Caucasian. It is possible that the elite of Urartu was Khaldic.

Its possible as far as Pontic cluster also found in neighbourhoods of ancient Chaldia (Todays North Erzurum - Gumushane line). But absent part is Bayburt where thought that Chaldies' center was there. There arent any L samples from there and even now, thier neighbours (pontic populations) call them as Halt!!!

After receiving the Big Y, and Gareth's initial analysis, I blogged Story of L - my Big Y results (https://paulbrooker.posthaven.com/story-of-l-my-big-y-test-results). Since then, Gareth has been an excellent mole. He found that the other SK1214 to match my terminal SNP "was found in a research sample collected from the Makrani population who live along the south-west coast of Pakistan, near the border with Iran. The sample has been included in a number of studies including a ground-breaking one by Qamar et al in 2002".

Gareth also found that my nearest 67/111 marker STR cousin, my nearest Y cousin outside of England, was of East Iranian ancestry, tracing his paternal line to Birjand, South Khorasan, Iran - close to the present day border with Afghanistan. This is on the old Silk Road. His family had been in Birjand several generations, but apparently "moved there" with two brothers before that. At 67 markers we are genetic distance 14. At 111 markers we are genetic distance 28. I'm not sure what that correlates to TMRCA based on STR evidence alone, but it looks much closer than TMRCA with my Pontic cousins of 13,000 years before present. It would be great if he also had SK1214, and I understand that he is considering a future Big Y. I've talked to the tester on Facebook, and he is equally excited and intrigued by the new evidence and our connection.

Gareth has also pointed to a 67 marker test from a Portuguese tester. At 67 markers, he sits at a genetic distance of 22 from myself. "he has a distinctive value of 10 at DYS393. In the Qamar paper this value is found in the Parsi population".

On so little evidence there could be thousands of possible routes for my SK1214, but one that I'm presently imagining is: ancestral homeland Western Asia. Possibly carried by Parsi/traders to South Asia. Picked up by Portuguese seafarers / adventurers. Carried to England by the medieval Anglo-Portuguese Alliance. Don't take that too seriously a proposal, but one possible route?

We can find some similarities between our J1-FGC6064 branch and your L-SK1214, they have more or less the same age and we can find them in some common places like England, Portugal and around some Northern Middle Eastern areas, Caspian Sea/Northern Iran. It can be just a coincidence but let's pay attention to the facts.

I've done some more digging on the background to SK1214 (and other SK SNPs).
Back in the early 2000s the Human Genome Diversity Project collected samples from a range of "minority" populations around the world including 20 men from the Makrani population in SW Pakistan. 4 of these men (20%!) belonged to hg L, two were L-M27 and two were L-M317. One of the two L-M317 (MAK002 or HGDP00131) was included in the earliest Y-SNP discovery tests at Stanford University and was the sample in which M274 was discovered. Despite numerous tests, we still haven't found a M274+ person in the L Project and M274 was removed from FTDNA's tree a few versions ago. It's still on the ISOGG tree though. The other L-M317 sample (MAK004 or HGDP00134) was only used to look for new Y-SNPs much later, and SK1214 was the only one found in just that sample (it couldn't have been a next generation search like Big Y). Two new SNPs (SK1215 and SK1216) were found in the L-M274 sample. I'm waiting for confirmation whether L-M274 is also a branch of L-SK1212 (I strongly suspect it is). I predict that one or more of Norfolk L-M20's 90 unnamed novel SNPs will connect L-SK1214 and L-M274 below SK1212 (if we ever find a L-M274 person to test!)

They're basically Balochis that live on the coast(They speak Balochi, they cluster with Baloch, consider themselves Baloch). L-M317 is not found anywhere else in South Asia(Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka), I wouldn't be surprised of the Makrani L-M317 had recent west Asian ancestry. It's also absent in the Baloch from Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Apologies, folks - in my first rushed e-mail to Norfolk L-M20 when his Big Y results came out I mistyped the number of his critical SNP, and replicated the error in all my subsequent e-mails and postings. All the SK SNPs relevant to Hg L start with SK14, and the ones for L-M317 are:
SK1413 (17554098C) - equivalent to M317
SK1412 (16478565T) - between M317 and PH8, parallel to M349
SK1414 (16438509C) - below SK1412, parallel to PH8
SK1415 (21871168A) - below SK1412, parallel to PH8 and SK1414, equivalent to M274?
SK1416 (6909993C) - below SK1412, equivalent to M274 and SK1416?
I will arrange for the ISOGG tree to be updated shortly.

Closest matches of Mountain Jews belong to Pontic Cluster. I've listed their closest matches on the Ysearch as below:

His all matches belong to Pontic Cluster. I think Mountain Jewish haplotype is a kind of Pontic Cluster or related with Pontic Cluster.
Interesting that L1b only found among Mountain Jews from Dagestan, but not among Mountain Jews from Azerbaijan. L1b's subclades aren't common among Jewish communities therefore I think this Mountain Jewish L1b is a Judaized native lineage in Caucasus.

What do you think about 292179, Kurdish Alevi? He is my closest match on 37 markers. My closest matches on 12 markers still didn't upgrade to 37 markers, they might be my new closest matchs on 37 markers if they upgrade to 37 markers. 292179 is my closest match on 37 markers for now. He has also a Mingrelian from west Georgia, a Pontic Greek from Erzurum and a Svan from mountainous part of north Georgia closest matches. We are (Azerbaijani, Kurdish, Pontic Greek, Svan, Mingrelian) clustered together in phylogenetic trees according to our 37 markers (I generally do not trust the clustering of str markers.

Haplogroup L (generally L1b) is found mostly in West Georgia according to this results. Haplogroup L frequencies of West Georgia and Northeast Anatolia are closer. Haplogroup L is found at close and regular frequencies between Abkhazia and Erzurum (Abkhazia, Svanetia, Mingrelia, Batum, Artvin, Rize, Trabzon, Bayburt, Gümüşhane, Kars and Erzurum etc.) i guess. It has high frequencies with G2a and J2 in these regions.

FT-DNA have "upgraded" my haplotype to include SNP SK1412, and have now declared my Y-DNA to be L-SK1412, making my Y-DNA L1b2. Previously it was stuck at L-M22, even following Y111 and Big Y. I see that they've presumed me to be positive for M317.

Meanwhile at YFull, I'm still designated L-M317*

Gareth of the Y Haplogroup L project kindly found me a match with SK1414 in SW Pakistan, on an old survey. On ISOGG 2016 current, that takes me (under investigation) to L-SK1414, or L1b2c.

If only we had more testers from Iran, Pakistan, and Afghanistan!

10-21-2016, 07:27 PM
Yes, I've just been looking at their updated Haplotree (which I haven't been consulted on....). Below SK1412 is PH8 and then some of its branches. FTDNA have also started naming SNPs found in Big Y tests, using a BY prefix. I've asked if there is a list of these available with their locations. Next step is to get a SNP Panel developed, the aim will be around 150 SNPs for around $120.

And now I see that FT-DNA have updated my haplogroup to:

L-SK1414.

That's because I asked them to include SK1414 in the L SNP Panel under development. Their initial proposals were good but included too many deep level SNPs (equivalent to M20, M27, M357) but the revised version should have a bigger range of informative ones. As well as SK1414 there is FGC51036 which is the first on your list of "novel" SNPs.
Overall there will be around 161 SNPs, coverage as follows:
L-PH8 22
L-M349 10
rest of L-M317 16
L-SK1418 (joins L-M27 and L-M357) 4
L-M27/M76 50

I'm a little surprised that they have only two M349.

There are no academic L-M349 samples with test results in a format that YFull can use. As far as I can tell there have been 5 L-M349 kits tested with Big Y, two of whom are now on YFull with at least one (possibly two) Druze kit(s) to be added. At least one set of results has gone to Full Genomes as most of the M349 equivalent SNPs have FGC numbers (which YFull have adopted), but FGC doesn't have a public tree so I don't know for certain whose results they have.

That is great news, and I have looked at the new L-SK1414 groups. Such expansion since I took that Big Y last year, and you spotted the SNP on the survey in Pakistan. Well done, and thank you to the other testers. On STR, I still think that the Birjand, Iran sample appears to be closest to mine, and the other English samples.

The news on B374 is indeed tantalising. I'm such a novice, but it would be tempting to imagine a Steppe origin for some of the European M349's.

If you look at yfull L tree ( https://yfull.com/tree/L/ ) you can see that there are 2 PH2079 sample who are Pontic greek originally from same village in Erzurum Pasinler. There are 3000 of years TMRCA between them. One is clustered with hemshin people but the other one is not according to thier STR values. In my opinion it may point that hemshin cluster split from this lineage but not represent all PH2079s. I guess that this lineage spread all of eastern blacksea region. I m not in this lineage. My SNP is PH1099 which is sister to PH2079. Both your grandfather and my paterline lineage comes from same area. Thus it may means that both PH1099 and PH2079 have lived togather for thousands of years but some PH2079s moved south and east and settled in Erzurum and Rize or, your paterline lineage moved to Trabzon more later and meet with thier PH1099 cousins.

I have two super match from this area. They are a Pontic Greek from Horasan/Erzurum and a Turkish(?) from Ispir/Erzurum. I have also a super match from Athens/Greece at the YHRD.org and his ancestor was probably Pontic Greek from the same area.

We have one kit in group 31 from the right part of Russia - kit 243777. He only has 37 markers but he is close enough to the rest of the Rhine-Danube folk that I suspect both he and the anonymous L-B374 could be descendants of the "Volga Germans"

Dear Gareth and everybody,

We (admins of Pontic & Anatolian Greeks DNA Project at FTDNA - https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/russiangreeks/dna-results) have Y17 STR results of 38 Pontic Greeks made in Moscow-based DNA lab, and we transferred saliva samples of these 38 kits to FTDNA. Now we are planning to order Y12 STR tests for them at FTDNA in order later to be able to make deeper analysis. You may see the Y17 STR results attached - there are 17 of them, which are L1b-M317 (and with quite high probability PH8).

We are also planning to order Y12 STR test for another pack of 67 Pontic Greeks (the kits are already delivered to FTDNA). We think that about 15-20% of them (10-13 kits) will be L1b-M317 too. This should happen, probably, next week.

It's quite big order for us, and for the moment we have only our own money to pay for it, so we would appreciate it if you could donate to our Project to help us.

Thanks in advance!

Sincerely,

Laert

Laz haplotypes shared by thier neighbourhods. But on the toher hand dendogram shows that Central Asian and Siberian Haplotypes have distance with Laz ones. Most probably Siberian and Central asian Haplotypes likely M317>M349, M317>SK1414 or a new branch under M317 while Laz Branches are M317>PH8. All of those haplotypes have common ancestor lived 12000-13000 years ago.

I've noticed that there are a lot of new Pontic Greek samples on the FTDNA. I have new Pontic Greek matches from Erzurum and Gümüşhane. My matches are mostly ethnically Pontic Greek and they are mostly from Erzurum.

Gareth, I have a question to you.

What do you think about DYS448=20 in Pontic Cluster? It seems very rare mutation for L1b.
There are only 6 samples with this value among 72 samples of Pontic Cluster. Modal haplotype of DYS448 is 19 and there are 65 samples with DYS448=19. There is only 1 sample with DYS448=18 (A Megrelian from Georgia). This str marker seems very slow for L1b.

DYS448=20 samples are here.

There are 3 Chechen, 1 Svan and 1 Bulgarian samples. I am also is one of them. I saw this haplotype among Avars and Abkhazians outside of FTDNA project. This haplotype is only found in Caucasus, I didn't see any sample with this haplotype in out of Caucasus. Note: This Bulgarian sample has clear North Caucasian deep ancestor in last 1000 year according to his ancestral story. He is already clustered with Chechen samples on all phylotrees. I talked to him. Is DYS448=20 can be sign of a special cluster in Pontic Cluster? Are this samples descendants of one ancestor?

We would like to order several FTDNA BigY tests for the L1b kits from our Pontic & Anatolian Greeks Project as long as the discount works (the price is $395 now). I would like to ask everybody to share your thoughts (on which kits should be tested as the first priority) and funds (if possible).

Dear Gareth, what is your opinion?

it would be nice to do BigY to my Laz match on FTDNA.

Some new L-M317 samples were found in ethnic Russians, Cossacks and Turkic groups from central Asia and Siberia.

Which study is this from?

Edit: Think I found it: Genetic differentiation between upland and lowland populations shapes the Y-chromosomal landscape of West Asia by Balanovsky et al

Congrats we finally have an ancient sample from tepe hissar, Iran. They were mostly Iran Neolithic with 9% EHG. He was mtDNA W3b.

Isnt it L2? But not L1b?

Few L1’s(other ancient samples) and one L2(which should be L1b AKA L-M317)

I can't find a note of which tree version they are using, but as they have labelled L-M27 as L1a1 (e.g. HG03686) and L-M357 as L1a2 (e.g. HG03672), I think L2 must be L-L595 not L-M317.

The article is mainly concerned with autosomal DNA but there are Y-DNA and mtDNA calls in the supplementary info. Unfortunately the Y-DNA haplogroups are given in the SNP-less form (L1a, L1b etc) which is ambiguous without a reference to a tree and version/date.

I've signed important (more than 5%) L1b-Pontic Cluster frequencies on the map.

http://i.imgur.com/xIh9J7d.png
(X is known oldest location of my paternal ancestors)
.........................

Mountain Jews (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mountain_Jews): 20% (Yunusbayev et al. 2011)

*Mountain Jews have a specific haploptype. Haplotype of Mountain Jews isn't called as "Pontic Cluster" on FTDNA Haplogroup L project, but Mountain Jewish samples are clustered with Pontic Cluster on all phylogenetic trees. Closest matches of Mountain Jews belong to Pontic Cluster. I've listed their closest matches on the Ysearch as below:

Interesting that L1b only found among Mountain Jews from Dagestan, but not among Mountain Jews from Azerbaijan. L1b's subclades aren't common among Jewish communities therefore I think this Mountain Jewish L1b is a Judaized native lineage in Caucasus.

Note that the Yunusbayev et al. 2011 study is not representative when it comes to the Mountain Jewish yDNA due to the low sample size (N=10). My estimate would put Hg L at 5-10% of the total Mountain Jewish population.
Its origin and introduction to the MJ community is still a mystery to me. Its carriers seem to lack the PH8 mutation that is prevalent in Pontic Greeks, which would put the point of divergence at least 7,700 ybp.

The Lebanese samples were subjected to control and also exclusion from studies, especially the output of the L according to the old samples and depending on the site Yfull

Thanks, so what I understood is that L1b in Lebanon dates back to approx. 5200 BC? And it came from the Western Euphrates region in Syria? Sounds plausible and awesome. It would be interesting if there is a reason they put it on the mountain because L1b is concentrated in the Mountains. By the way how can I access the map in YFULL?
