Subject: Re: [DNA] The fate of R-L11 in Europe

I answering on this message but I saw the 2 other replies from John German and you didn't understand (below) that my point is closer to John's questioning. I'll try to be more explicit and I hope we can get some more people in this discussion.
I am not saying, for example, that the origin of P312 could be in Ireland where the frequency is higher. I was pointing a rather "pure" P312 versus U106 split and this split, by itself, is a point to take into consideration if you consider R-L11, U106 and P312 going on the same path in the "conquest" of western Europe. What chances to get such a (geographical) split in a mixed population ? Any other example ?
The 2 separate path that I have been proposing (P312 south, U106 north) can be with an early origin of P312 in the Balkans if the spread was fast to the west and close to the P312 origin.
