  • Y Haplogroup C in Philippines

    I have tested for Y Haplogroup C. My direct paternal line country of origin is in the Philippines. Doing some research on the Philippines, I discovered that many ethnic groups used the writing system similar to 'Indic Script', which is similar to the writings in India. This writing system was used prior to the arrival of the Spanish. Y Haplogroup C is most diverse in Indian populations, so I am guessing that my Paternal ancestors might have been the ones to bring Indic Script to the Philippines long ago. Haplogroup C in the Philippines is a minority lineage there, as Haplogroup O is the majority. I am far from a Linguist, so if anybody with more knowledge in this area cares to comment on this, it would be well appreciated.
