    PF7263 From Iraq

    So I completed my FTDNA Y-111 markers test and after plugging it into nevgen got a predicted haplogroup of J-PF7263. My question is what exactly is the history of PF7263 and is it native to Iraq? Also what should I do now in regards to testing?

    Yes, it is native to northern Iraq and the surrounding area. It is very old. You can see it on a tree at https://www.yfull.com/tree/J-ZS4416/ where PF7263 is the same as J-ZS4416.

    Sorry but I can't advise on further testing. FTDNA's BigY is very expensive, takes a long time, and is hard to interpret. Many people buy BigY and send the results to www.yfull.com for a better interpretation. It take a long time too.

    There is also some Balkanites who are J1-PF7263, and some haplotypes are far from each other. Furthermore, on YFull there is two samples from Italy on parallel clades. Curious to hear if you have a theory on how it came to the Balkans/Europe...

    The branches of J1-PF7263 have a TMRCA of 3400 years, so I would assume dispersal during the Bronze or Iron Ages.

    J-PF7263 is confirmed to be the predominant J1 lineage of feyli tribes in ilam. Literally every J1 match that ive seen so far has belonged exclusively to J-PF7263. Elsewhere its found in europe, amongst ashkenazi jews, central asians. Its really hard to say where it orginated without more archaeogenetic findings related to Y-DNA in the zagros. If i had to speculate I would assume its branch off chalocolithic-iranian expansions, which spread J1 around west-asia. PF7263 would remain however isolated in the zagros mountains, until it would be spread west-wards into the levant by kassites and related peoples. Which then would spread into europe, via ashkenazi jews, after the exile of hebrews by the romans.
