    Confirmed R-U106

    Hi all,

    I just received my 23andme results and I am R-U106. I've read around for some of the origins of this group, and I was wondering if it is indeed Germanic?

    U106 is believed to have been "born" roughly 4500 years ago (circa 2500 BC). According to the Wikipedia article on the "Germanic peoples" the earliest date I could see for the creation of "Germanic" was almost two millennia later (circa 750 BC).

    It is also wrong to equate a specific haplogroup with a specific ethnicity as tribes/clans/etc. were not strictly lineage-based. The various Germanic tribes certainly had men who belonged to other haplogroups besides U106 and it is fairly certain that other contemporary ethnic groups (like the Celts) likely had some U106+ men living among them.

    The above being said, it is safe to say U106 is clearly found much more often in the areas where the Germanic tribes settled than in Celtic areas and P312 was the reverse (found more often in Celtic areas than Germanic).

    YFull's current haplotree estimates U106 to be 5000 years old. Your patrilineal ancestors may have spoken several different languages and dialects since then, probably starting with Proto-Indo-European.

    If you want to delve more deeply into your patrilineal history, you might ask Yseq to compose a SNP test suite for U106.
