You're welcome, Sharon. And thanks for your participation in the E-M35
Of all the declared countries of origin of our participants, Germany is one
of the countries with some the highest count of members. We know that
there's a definite auto-selection bias in our database as the majority of
testees reside in the US. However, there's a significant presence of E-M35
in Germany, particularly subclade E1b1b1a2 which is defined by the V13+
There is some evidence that the spread of V13+ throughout Europe occurred
along the Vardar-Morava-Danube-Rhine corridor from its likely place of
origin in the Balkan peninsula. There are other possibilities and proposals
too. Most probably there were several routes and distinct chronological
waves that contributed to the present day presence of this subclade in
Central and Eastern Europe.
In our project there are some members who are studying your uncle's subclade
in more detail, including the possible correlation of its geographical
distribution with historical events. I believe your comments and questions
would be welcome at our forum (http://community.haplozone.net)
