    J-L70 Presence in the Middle East-North Africa

    I have decided to create a thread to post my findings on where J-L70 is found in the MENA region and how many individuals I was able find.

    A couple months back I decided to draw up a spreadsheet of J-L70 individuals from manually searching through loads of FamilyTreeDNA projects. From the data, it was most common in Jews, then Italians, then English people - which somewhat matched up with FamilyTreeDNA's Haplotree (minus Jews). Ultimately, I decided against doing anything with this spreadsheet, as I realised the Haplotree should have the exact information - but here we are (I'm only discussing MENA groups - but if anyone wants me to post the whole spreadsheet, just ask). In this spreadsheet, I explicitly acknowledged Jewish descent (Ashkenazi, Sephardi etc...).

    I'm not going to post any kit numbers, but I do have them all on the spreadsheet. I explicitly checked that I had no duplicate kit numbers. Unfortunately there were some projects I could not access - oh well...
    I'll disclose ethnicity/tribe etc... where possible

    DISCLAIMER: If there are any errors, please let me know - and remember - I'm only human
    Most are subclades under J-L70, where there is uncertainty/doubt, I disclose it.

    *Important to note: mostly name/surname based. Many "Sephardic" surnames were googled for confirmation (if that means anything). If they were on a JewishDNA project (I'll specify), I assumed they were of Jewish origin (whether that's right or wrong). Assume Ashkenazi unless told otherwise.
