    Major Jewish Y-lineages

    I agree with the concern in the Big Thread that we've spent too much time interpreting autosomal DNA-based models, and not enough making judgments based on clear phylogeny (which has gotten much more precise over the last few years). Drawing on a number of sources (JewishDNA.net, YTree, FTDNA's Haplotree, and FTDNA projects), I decided to put together brief, "just the facts" summaries on each of the 10 apparently largest Ashkenazi lineages, all with YFull-estimated TMRCAs between 400 CE and 900 CE. By Wim Penninx's original estimate from a few years ago, these make up about 55% of all Ashkenazi patrilineages.

    For the most part I'll leave out my interpretations; I'm interested in yours (and in any blanks you'd be able to fill in). Suffice it to say, some branches have interesting internal structure and some don't; some have a clear link to non-Ashkenazi Jews, and some don't; some have a sibling branch within the historical timescale, and some don't; some appear Levantine, some European, and some unclear in origin.

    Might be best to break this up, and post one by one, in descending order of size. Starting with a notorious one:

    R1a-Z93-Y2619

    Frequency (Penninx): 8.6%
    TMRCA (YFull): 700 CE
    TMRCA (Behar 2017): 250 CE

    Main branches:
    R-BY29826 (TMRCA: Not reported)
    R-FGC18222 (TMRCA: 850 CE)
    - Includes Iraqi Jew (in a downstream clade with Belarusian and Polish Jews with TMRCA: 1725 CE) and Algerian Jew (also in downstream clade)
    R-Y2630 (Main branch; TMRCA: 950 CE)
    - Includes Turkish Jews (in multiple downstream clades)

    Parent branch:
    R-CTS6 (TMRCA: 900 BCE)
    - Basal individual: Persian from Kerman
    - Haplotree identifies possible basal Egyptian, Colombian
    - Found in a Scythian from ca. 1050 CE
    Sibling branches:
    R-Y37891 (TMRCA: 650 CE)
    - Includes Persian from Kerman, Iranian Azerbaijani, Iraqi Yazidi
    R-CTS7297 (TMRCA: 900 BCE)
    - Includes Armenian, Iranian Azerbaijani, Brazilian, and Spaniards

    Grandparent branch:
    R-F1345 (TMRCA: 1900 BCE)
    Uncle branches:
    R-YP5484 (TMRCA: 1050 CE)
    - Includes Galilee Palestinians (Mamluk tradition?)
    R-F2935 (TMRCA: 1700 BCE)
    - Includes Black Sea Turk, Balkars, Englishman, Scot, Spaniard, and Ukrainian

    I like this one because it strongly hints at intra-Ashkenazi structure:

    E1b-M84-Y14891

    Frequency (Penninx): 4%

    Main branches:

    - Includes several German Jews (Bavarian, Rhineland, Baden-Wurttemberg), Alsatian Jews, Dutch Jew
    E-Y16781 (TMRCA: 800 CE)
    - Larger branch; includes much smaller proportion of German Jews, plus Venetian Jew Bassan downstream (Ashkenazi origin likely)

    Parent branch:
    E-Y14899 (TMRCA: 5500 BCE)
    - Appears to include Syrian Jew, somewhere in structure
    Sibling branches:
    E-F1539 (TMRCA: 300 CE)
    - Includes Kuwaiti, Emirati
    E-Y14899* (BY63615?)
    - Includes Palestinian Christian from Birzeit, Greek Cypriot with possible Pontic origin
