  • Question on Jewish lineage need help to know

    Is a person able to find out if you have Jewish lineage even if it is not directly linked to Cohanim? Will the MTdna test for woman bring this out? Will the Ydna test for males bring this out?

    There are no uniquely Jewish haplogroups. At best, some haplogroups occur with some frequency among those of Jewish ancestry. For males, Haplogroups such as J1, J2, Eb3 and R1a1 are common. For females, K, N, J and H are common. The FTdna library contains a number of relevant studies.

      Dr. Doron Behar's just-released paper on Ashkenazi mtDNA should be of interest. See: http://www.familytreedna.com/pdf/43026_Doron.pdf

        Does anyone know if there are certain genetic markers or haplogroups that tell whether you are of sephardic or ashkenazi ancestry? Thanks.

          SURE BUT IT IS IN MATCHES AND PAPERWORK

          any e3b j1 j2 r1a as said can be jewish but you should get matches that are jewish dont you think. the locations of the matches with your tree can be significant. say you are a simon. or danan some are jewish some are christian.its the lines in the surname group that should show it

            There are no uniquely Jewish DNA types, not even the so-called CMH! Some mtDNAs are highly suggestive, and to are some STR haplotypes in Y DNA. A preponderance of Jewish matches will be suggestive but not definitive.
