I recently took part in the "Genographic Project" run by National Geographic, The Waitt Family Foundation and IBM, where I had my Y-chromosome DNA tested. Here is a summary of the results;
" My Y chromosome results identify me as a member of the haplogroup R1b, a lineage defined by a genetic marker called M343. This haplogroup is the final destination of a genetic journey that began some 60.000 years ago with an ancient Y chromosome marker called M168.
Members of the haplogroup "R" are descendants of Europes first large scale human settlers. Members of haplogroup R1b, defined by M343 are the direct descendants of Europes first modern humans, know as the Cro-Magnon people. Cro-Magnons arrived in Europe some 35,000 years ago during a time when Neandertals still lived in the region. M343 carrying peoples made woven clothing and constructed huts to withstand the frigid climes of the Upper Paleolithic era. They used relatively advanced tools of stone, bone and ivory. When the ice retreated genetically homogenous groups recolonised the north, where they are still found today in high frequencies. Some 70% of men in southern England are R1b. In parts of Spain and Ireland that number exceeds 90%.
There are many sub-lineages within R1b that are yet to be defined. The Genographic Project hopes to bring future clarity to the disparate parts of this distinctive European lineage."
