In several Projects of Family Tree DNA I've gathered all samples from people born before WW2 in Silesia.

Most of these men lived in the 19th, 18th, early 20th, but some in the 17th, 15th, one even died in the 12th century.

In total I have found 100 Y-DNA samples from descendants of pre-war inhabitants of Silesia. Here we go:

Sample/kit # - place of origin of most distant ancestor, ancestor's SURNAME (last SNP tested):

(I list modern names of settlements, if you copy & paste a name in Google, German version will show up too):

Summary of Silesian (pre-1939) Y-DNA haplogroups:

Sample size = 100

R1a ---- 54
I1 ------ 13
R1b ---- 11 (surprisingly low)
J2 ------ 5
E1b ---- 4
G2a ---- 3
N1c ---- 3
J1 ------ 2
G2b ---- 2
I2a ----- 1 (surprisingly low)
T ------- 1
Q ------- 1

Total - 100

=================

These men lived in past centuries and are listed as "most distant ancestors" of FTDNA testeees.

One person in this sample of 100 men - Piotr Włostowic - even lived in the 11th & 12th centuries:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piotr_W%C5%82ostowic

Most of them, however, were born during the 19th and the early 20th centuries (all before WW2).

Of course Y-DNA samples were collected from modern paternal descendants of these 100 men.

It seems that this map validates that the sample of 100 posted above is representative:

The map is from Robert Gabel's website: http://www.robertgabel.de/

It also can be found here: https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/germany/about/results

Though my Silesian sample of 100 includes men from both German and Polish Projects.

Tomb of Piotr Wlostowic (destroyed by Lutherans in 1529):
http://s33.postimg.org/i2pzs9az3/Screen_Hunter_1397_May_23_15_13.jpg

Annales seu cronicae incliti Regni Poloniae about Piotr Wlostowic' funeral:

Pogrzeb miał wspaniały z udziałem wielkiej liczby Polaków, którzy uczciwszy go na uroczystościach żałobnych, okazali, jak bardzo kochali go za życia. Do dnia dzisiejszego imię komesa Piotra ze Skrzynna cieszy się u Polaków rozgłosem i sławą. Jego żona Maria, która zmarła później, została pochowana w tym samym grobowcu co Piotr, by zająć miejsce obok prochów małżonka.

Dwuwiersz wypisany na grobowcu świadczy, że pogrzebano tam oboje. Oto on:
„Tu Piotra z wierną żoną Marią w grób złożono Z woli ojca Wilhelma wspaniały marmur położono".

Do tej pory istnieje w Polsce wiele kościołów murowanych, które — jak podają — zostały przez niego wzniesione.

As for this sample:

KUBE (born 1832), M512+, Osina Mała (German: Wenig Nossen), #464408


Kube is most likely Y2902. I've found even more samples but to some of them I have no access at all.

By the way - FTDNA Silesian Project will be established in a few weeks:


I will be possibly included as an admin to the Silesian DNA project (which is to be opened in the next few weeks). We will gather as many "safe" samples as we can and many autochtonous Silesians are to be tested thanks to the Silius Radicum association.

I did some searching, and it is a very interesting association indeed:

By the way:

Here is where Rebala's "Paternal landscape" 2012 study German samples were from:

7 - Mecklenburg (only pre-WW2 inhabitants)
8 - western Bavaria (as above)
5 - Slavic Sorbs (as above)

7+8 = German samples (Krzysztof Rebala's study) / Y-DNA from Robert Gabel's map:

http://s33.postimg.org/4ntdd0xdr/Meck_Bav.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/0Plxrlm.png

So Rebala found "significant differentiation" because he sampled only these regions.

It seems that R1b was most frequent in north-western part of Silesia, around Grünberg:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zielona_Góra

====
Edit:

But what if we divide the region into its two historical parts?:

https://s32.postimg.org/6op30x89h/Lower_and_Upper.png

Historical border between Upper and Lower Silesia:

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-y0xiVjGh3mM/UQ2Rid2-q0I/AAAAAAAAANA/AtE3zQle544/s1600/historyczny+ślask.jpg

^ If we apply that line of divide, we can see lower % of R1a in Lower Silesia (as expected):

Upper Silesia - 48 samples of which 30 R1a = 62,5%
Lower Silesia - 48 samples of which 23 R1a = 47,9%

However:

Grünberg region - 11 samples of which 4 R1a = 36,4%
Rest of Lower Silesia - 37 samples of which 19 R1a = 51,4%

I suppose that there was a lot of YP254 in Silesia. YP254 is strangely concentrated in Poland, especially in southern and central part of it. Czechs do not have so much of R-YP254 (YP1337 appears to be quite popular in Czech Republic). It is interesting if high frequency of YP254 in Silesia has something to do with Piast dynasty (settlers associated with it).

It is interesting why so young haplogroup like YP254 is so popular in so large and populous country like Poland. I think that YP254 was formed somewhere in Ukraine or Belarus or western extremities of Russia - somewhere in the Dnieper basin, maybe near Kiev. In late antiquity most of what is today Poland was probably Germanic-speaking (with the exception of northeastern part of it, which was probably Baltic-speaking). It is amazing that R-YP254 is so numerous in Poland.
