J1b type. From the Caspian Sea to Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil

New YHRD release N° 37.
Another J1b type was found in Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil. One in 50 (1/50). Keeping the same ratio observed of more or less 0,5% of J1b's types in any Portuguese speaking sampled populational stock tested. As always any Brazilian sample is showing the J1b types at the same proportion already observed.

Mato Grosso was the farthest frontier of the Portuguese and the Brazilian Empire. In the 18th century a travel from Lisbon to Macau, in China, was shorter and easier than the trip to Mato Grosso, the continental heartland of South America. A very difficult trip facing some of the most fearsome Amerindians from Brazil always ambushing the explorers. Only the Brazilian Bandeirantes could conquer that remote frontiers fighting the natives, the animals, the diseases, the tropical dangers and the Paraguayans from the Spanish Empire in the big tropical swamps upstream of the Spanish controlled Paraguay River. The cost worth the prize because nowadays Mato Grosso is the world's biggest producer of soybean and bovine meat, full of empty spaces in the Northern Cerrados.

As I have predicted here, the Brazilian J1b haplotype constitutes approximately +/- 0,5% of any sample of the Brazilian population descendant from the old Minho's frontier in the Christian Reconquista.
