In a message dated 12/19/2005 11:17:21 A.M. Eastern Standard Time,
you look to Valery's posting just last month, she
lists frequencies of C3 among various groups, and
notes C3 is found among Russians & Poles. Given their
closer proximity to Asia, their higher frequency of C3
makes sense. Some of this C3 could easily have
trickled westward into Germany.
Ellen I don't doubt that Russians and Poles would have some C3 as they
intermingled closely most likely from what I read with the Asian peoples early.
what I am seeing is the online articles siting Germany and the areas in Germany
named Huns________. not Russia_________ or Polish_________. I know either of
those could have wound up in Germany also. I think the point is to look at
the agreed and FTDNA web site definition of C3 as it only refers to Asian as
its source and not Russians or Poles. Now Russians and Poles probably have some
Asian via some sort of events. As I read the definition it does not seem to
indicate that Russians and Poles originated C3 and then spread it to Asians.
At present I can only go by what I see.. The definition of C3, the heavy
references in Germany to Huns_______ variations of Hun names with the written
explanation that some of this naming in Germany comes from the Huns invading
Germany. Also my encyclopedia in two articles indicates that Huns invaded
Germany. Take a look at Charles Kerchner's article on his web site for PA Dutch
also on Huns to see still another source indicating the Huns into Germany..
