By 23andme I am 2.7% Neanderthal !

Europeans will have a "bigger" proportion of Neanderthal DNA than Africans, as we can observe in the comparison !

23andme Relative Finder. New Cousin !

My Clan

My Clan:

Picture of the family Gomes de Oliveira from Joinville, Santa Catarina, in 1923. The older lady is my (Ricardo Costa de Oliveira) Great-Great-grandparent Rosa Leocadia Gallo Machado, born 1830, widow of João Gomes de Oliveira (1824-1892). On his side are four of their children. On the left side (pictured) is his daughter Rosa Gomes de Oliveira married to Antonio de Oliveira Mira, parents of Crispim Mira famous writer from Santa Catarina. On the left we have João Gomes de Oliveira (son), Vereador in Joinville and Captain of the National Guard (paternal Great- grandfather of Ricardo Costa de Oliveira). On the right side of Rosa Leocadia we have Procopio de Oliveira Gomes, Deputy and Mayor of Joinville, married to Mary Balbina de Miranda. On the right side of Procopio we have Clemencia Gomes de Oliveira, who married Francisco Jose Ribeiro, Vereador in Joinville. Upstairs, in the center (under an arrow and the number 3), is Placido Gomes de Oliveira, MD, State Representative, son of Procopio. By his side (number 4) is Carlos Gomes de Oliveira, Senator, cousin and son in law of Procopio. Carlos Gomes de Oliveira lived more than 100 years and he was the president of the Brazilian senate in 1955. He represented Brazil and spoke at the United Nations in 1957.

Landscapes of my Y DNA

Landscapes of my Y DNA in Northern Portugal and in Southern Brazil

My Paternal line came from Guilhado, Milhazes, Barcelos to São Francisco do Sul in the first years of the 18th Century.

Manoel Gomes Galhardo was baptized in Milhazes, Barcelos, Portugal in 22/Dec/1686

He became a Captain and a big landowner in Brazil

Sesmaria de Manoel Gomes Galhardo, Rio Areias Grandes, Terra Firme da Ilha de São Francisco do Sul, Santa Catarina, in Brazil

4th Great-Grandfather (1718-1792)

Region of the Farm of my 2nd great-Grandfather João Gomes de Oliveira (1824-1892). Rio Cubatão, Pirabeiraba, Joinville. On the 5th of February of 1882 the Xocleng Indians attacked the farm and João Gomes de Oliveira and his Black Slaves had to resist. That was the last attack of the Natives to the family property.

Kolonie Zeitung, o jornal em alemão de Joinville:
"No domingo, dia 5 deste mês (fevereiro/1882), os bugres invadiram a nova fazenda do Sr. João Gomes de Oliveira. O proprietário retirou-se da propriedade na noite anterior, com sua família e seus negros, porque estavam desarmados, mas retornaram no dia seguinte com armas.
Quando do seu retorno à propriedade, encontraram tudo destruído; as peças de cobre do alambique foram arrancadas e roubadas, todas as ferramentas em ferro, como machados e similares, também roubados, pipas de cachaça foram destruídas a machadadas. A plantação de milho foi danificada. Esta propriedade está situada a 17 km da cidade, aproximadamente em frente à Serraria do Príncipe, na outra margem do Rio Cubatão".

Joinville today. My Grandfather José Gomes de Oliveira was born here in 2/JAN/1896

The map of the Family in São Francisco do Sul, Joinville and some signatures in the 18th Century

I was born in 1964 in the Center of Rio de Janeiro, Ordem do Carmo, Lapa, exactly here:

J1b M365 is negative to Z1834

The new J1 SNP Z1834 associated with J1 DYS388=13 is negative to M365. I tested with FTDNA and I am Z1834 negative.

J1 is a complex and diverse haplogroup. Ideologies, religions and identities are always related to the history of J1, so the sub-haplogroups are fundamental for the history and expansion of this decisive antique civilization-maker and religion-maker haplogroup

As November of 2011 we have:

J1* - Small pockets of STRs waiting for a SNP and for a history in Eurasia and Africa.

J1a - M62. Old SNP . A singleton found in a Crimean Tatar of Uzbekistan

J1b - M365. Originally found in Eastern Anatolia and in Georgia. Now we have two small hotspots in Northern Iran and in Western Iberia and thinly scattered cases in Devon, England, the French Pyrenees and in Belgium. The Caspian Iranian cases and the Portuguese-Brazilian cases are matching in more or less 2000 years, a historical TMRCA dating to the Fall the Roman Empire. Pretty distinctive modal haplotype associated to J1b and a basal branch of the J1 haplogroup. The distinctive J1b modal haplotype is usually associated with the Ancient Iranian languages and peoples in Eastern Anatolia and Northern Iran. A map with the J1b types:

J1c - L136 and the big P58 group. The J1c3d (L147) is the traditional J1-Deep South usually associated with the Semitic imaginary. Monotheism, Deserts, Camels, Jews, Arabs et Caterva. Desinformed people will take this important J1 sub-haplogroup as the totality of the J1 experience, what is a mistake committed for begginers in genetic genealogy. J1d- Z11834 (plus more Z SNPs discovered in November of 2011) or the bulk of the DYS388=13 casesJim's Map of 388=13
We can observe in Jim's map of J1 388=13 almost a precise straight diagonal line to the West of the Caucasus, Dagestan, Azerbaijan, Eastern Anatolia, Pontus, Armenia, Northen Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. To the East of this line J1 388=13 is rare in Northern Iran and in the Southern Caspian shores, where the rare J1b types can be found and 388=13 is also rare to the Southern semi-arid areas where the "Semitic" P58+ L147+ types are dominant. 388=13 is also present and thinly spreaded in Greece, Eastern Europe and parts of Western Europe. It looks like the three mentioned types of J1 (Z1834, L147 and M365) had a completely different history and a completely different pattern of migrations and expansions. They were not living together and they were not moving together because they are found in different places with different frequencies. The smallest and rarest SNP, J1b M365 is completely absent in several populations where 388=13 is found and L147 is dominant. In the detailed SMGF database there are only two J1b types hotspots: in Northern Iran and in Portugal, so J1b could be perhaps one of the elements in the individuality of the Portuguese language and Portuguese Empire in Brazil where J1b is regularly found in most of the regions. No J1b was found in the Mediterranean Sea. Probably Z1834 participated in all the ethnic and political movements across the Z1834 divide line to the West, since the Neolithic, the Bronze Age, the Persian Empire, the Eastern Roman Empire, Byzantium, the Ottoman Empire. Tests with the 1000 Genomes Project also revealed that Z1842+ would be J1d1 !
