Brothers Pt. 3 – Y-DNA Haplogroup Trees

03 Sep

AFRICA L2R copy 2

Welcome to the third part of this little spree of posts on Y-DNA and the worldwide lines of descent, wherein you’ll find haplogroup trees of the world’s men. Those men have been the agents and embodiments of its (Y-DNA’s) dispersal. Here are links to Part 1 & Part 2.

In this post I’m sharing more detailed charts I’ve made showing these descents, first of which is a slight revision of the first one I posted showing the African “trunk” of what I’m calling the world’s brothers. The main difference is simply that it’s oriented left to right instead of top down; I’ve also added some brief explanatory notes on it. Again, all the charts I post should be clicked on and then opened again at their max size.

And next is the branch that came from “CT Little Brother” in the chart above. CT is the working designation of the Y-DNA haplogroup of the men who first left the garden-like cradle of Africa about 72,000 years ago, and from whom 90% of the world’s men descend.

Next we have “The Rest” of us, the Brothers. It’s worth noting that almost all of the migrations demonstrated in these charts were back in the Old Stone Age (Paleolithic period).

And last for today is this amazingly elegant & simplified version of the big picture from a great site called The Genetic Atlas:

Thanks for visiting! And as always, if you share any of these Y-DNA haplogroup trees, just link back here or attribute them otherwise.

    Where do Australian Aborigines fit on these trees? I watched a documentary about them last nite on Netflix or Amazon that claimed the Aborigines to be the oldest (50,000-some years) of African emigrees who traveled the coastline from Africa. The show may have been kind of old (couldn’t tell if it was from the 1990s) but it was fascinating. I think it was called “First Steps.”

      Click on the 2nd chart (the CT one) and click it again so it’s nice and big. Just left of center-ish find the one labelled “C1b Dan Unduh ASIAN BIG BROTHER”. That’s the strain the doc was talking about. And if you say this one’s name out loud you just did excellently at practicing an Australian accent, mate! But also, Aboriginal men belong to another group, which is on “The Rest” (3rd) chart as “Aussie LITTLE BROTHER”, just below-left of the center (and to the right of me on that chart).
