Y-DNA J1 retrospective 2015

- We had three ancient Northern J1 results:
1- Sarmatian J1, Beslan, North Ossetia (2/3 C. A.D.) Gennady Afanasiev. Khazar Confederates in the Don basin. Pure research methods and the paradigm of modern archeology. M. 2015. S.146-153. (Afanasiev:2015).
2 - Karelian J1 Eastern Hunther-Gatherer from Russia, Yuzhnyy Oleni Ostrov [I0211/UzOO 40], M, 5500-5000 BC. (Mathieson:2015).
3 - Satsurblia cave J1, Georgia, F4306+, 13000 YBP (Jones:2015).
- We have discovered and confirmed our own 14000 years old branch SNP FGC6064 comparing my results FTDNA 73612-YFull YF01554 (I have 188 new SNPs to be tested FGC5987 to FGC6175) with the Big Y results from Kitching, England, 381875-YF03848.
- FTDNA is still boycotting our J1-M365 SNP. M365 was discovered in 2004, the M365 SNP has been in ISOGG's list since 2006 and M365 is also present at the last Y Chromosome Consortium (YCC). I had M365 as my terminal SNP in FTDNA in 2007. People from my J-M365 Project paid and tested positive for M365. We have M365+ in our J1 report. We have several people now listed as J1-M267 and not J1-M365 as our terminal SNP. We have recurrent SNPs in the case of almost all SNPs and M365 is quite old, so it was found and listed in other branches, like R-M365 in FTDNA's haplotree. Our J1-M365 was discovered in 2004 and is extremely valid, useful and important. So we are only asking to our terminal J1-M365 SNP to be where it was in FTDNA haplotree in 2007 because we paid, tested positive and that's our J1 group. Please FTDNA, we need our J1-M365 downstream SNP of FGC6064 in the haplotree.
- YFull tree, the best NGS public tree, now has J1-M365 as a node. Now we are waiting the analysis of another Portuguese Big Y BAM YF04781 results there.
- Now it's obvious that J1 was born and emerged in the Northern Near Eastern regions around the Black Sea, Eastern Anatolia, the Caucasus, the Caspian Sea and Northern Iran where the ancient types of J1 and the basal branches were discovered and still can be found there nowadays. No research or article has ever investigated basal types and SNPs of J1 from the cradle areas. We depend on the private tests and the citizen scientists only. I need some Gilaki and Caspian or Northern Iranian J1 types matching our M365 cluster in terms of STR to be fully sequenced with NGS. Let's wait 2016.
I think most of the European J1 is historical and related to historical migrations and wars in Europe arriving after the Iron Age or even after the Roman Empire. There's no homogeneity in the European J1 branches and the gaps can only be understood in reference to the J1 original lands because the European J1 clusters usually match more closely similar Near Eastern J1 branches than other European J1 clusters. No J1 was never found in any European Neolithic site and even in the Mediterranean areas possibly associated to Late Neolithic movements like the Sardinian J1 is always a local or regional cluster not found spreaded in other distant European regions because no Western European J1 has a deep chronology in Europe demonstrating an ancient presence there like the Karelian Mesolithic or the Caucasian CHG and the living Finn J1 individual as revealed in the last articles files only because the authors couldn't assume or could write about the major breakthrough of the ancient J1 remains and sequences in the texts for incompetence or other hidden interests. The Near Eastern differences between Northern Near Eastern basal types of J1 of Caucasian, Iranian, Anatolian, Armenian and Byzantine origins also can offer a big contrast with downstream derived P58 and subsequent downstream SNPs with origins associated to Southern Near Eastern, Levantine and Semitic origins in Europe like Phoenicians, Jews or Arabs depending on the phylogenetic positions in the J1 tree already found and occupied by J1 in Western Asia. 
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !
