Now we have the first Big Y results from an Iranian FTDNA#669046 MDKA sample from the Caspian Sea, Mazandaran, Northern Iranian.
For several years I wrote about the Ancient Iranian Peoples' J1 branch different from the Caucasian, Anatolian, Levantine and Arabian branches.
Now we have discovered a very interesting Iranian J1 branch distributed from Northern Iran to the European Western Atlantic areas.
In FTDNA and YFull trees we have this Iranian branch under FGC6064, FGC6031, Y19467, FGC6020 and the oldest J1 valid M365 marker.
I discovered J1 FGC5987 to FGC6175 (188 new SNPs) in my own test !
FTDNA#669046 is going to organize a new Iranian branch separating the Portuguese-Brazilian cluster from the English group.
Of the block of 35 SNPs from J-Y19467 FTDNA#669046 is showing
19 SNPs Positive
16 SNPs Negative
Y19467+ Y19468- FGC5988- FGC5990+ FGC5992+ FGC6024+ FGC6025- FGC6026- FGC6032+ FGC6035- FGC6039+ FGC6040+ FGC6041+ FGC6047+ FGC6056- FGC6066+ FGC6075+ FGC6077- FGC6083- FGC6085- FGC6094+ FGC6095- FGC6097+ FGC6107+ FGC6109+ FGC6111- FGC6128+ FGC6132+ FGC6134- FGC6139+ FGC6147+ FGC6157- FGC6166- FGC6168- FGC8031-
The TMRCA between the Portuguese and the Iranian J1-Y19467 (FGC6035 * FGC6094 * FGC6040+32 SNPs formed 5500 ybp) should be more or less around 3000ybp/3250 years before present, more or less around 1000 BC. Let's wait YFull analysis.
So the movement of the Portuguese J1-M365 was historical and not from the distant Neolithic and perhaps we can find other Iranian J1 branches from this group.
