  • G2a Lebanon

    I am trying to sort out the new haplogroup designations and the get the latest information on G2a, which is now my group. This is a man from Northern Lebanon, a Maronite Christian whose family was probably in the same location for generations. Where and when did this haplogroup come into existence? Is this an unusual group, rare? It seems G is a splintered and hard to nail down haplogroup. Does Northern Lebanon fit the mold for this haplogroup? Thanks.

    I have not seen data on Lebanon for subgroups of G. The recent paper by Zalloua shows a frequency of 6.5% for G as a whole in Lebanon (both Christians and Muslims), so the haplogroup is quite frequent there and I would think not a surprise. In general, G is much more common in the middle east than in Europe.
