Subject: [DNA] RES: Very unusual J2,even at 37 markers + New paper with impt. news on J*
Date: Mon, 17 Nov 2008 23:21:13 -0200
I remember one Portuguese J* (xJ1,J2) in the old article of Rita Gonçalves:
Y-chromosome Lineages from Portugal, Madeira and Açores. Record Elements of
Sephardim and Berber Ancestry
It's from Madeira
The FTDNA J Project does not have any J* (xJ1,J2) so they are very rare.
The new article about Socotorá (Soqotra) is very interesting. Not only the
impressive proportion of J* (71.4%) but also the new R0a1a1 mtDNA subclade
found there. J1 came from the North with some kind of technological edge
(metals?, agriculture?) and wiped out the J*'s and occupied the Arabian
There's a thesis online AMONG ARABIAN SANDS: DEFINING THE PALAEOLITHIC OF
SOUTHERN ARABIA full of considerations to understand what could had happened
before the arrival of J1 there.
