          Looks good! I enjoyed reading the information. As a fellow E3b1, I'll be looking forward to what will be discovered. I am adopted, so I don't know my ethnic background or potential traditions, but my numbers seem to indicate some sort of connection with those mentioned in the project. Best wishes!

            Benefit to some hopefully

            Thank you Marttinen. I guess time will tell if anything really can come out of this kind of project.

            I just couldn't help notice in the Jewish Heritage Project for example, you will find a moderate number of Levitical surnames with those who carry the E3b. I want to know if this is just a coincidence or is there something to this link?

              Ithamar4, seems like a very worthwhile project. According to Behar's study of Ashkenazi Levites close to 20% of Ashkenazi Levites and 10% of Sephardic Levites were probably E3b (E(xE3a)).

                This should definitely be a worthwhile project.

                I have Lif****z family who are Levites and I've been planning to ask a cousin to get tested. Hopefully the fact that my grandfather and another cousin in their generation has already tested will help with the convincing! I'm looking forward to finding out if he is E3b, R1b1, J2 or other. If he ends up being E3b, I'll certainly add him to the project.

                  I look forward to that....curious to know what their haplotype would be?

                  I hope to do some of the convincing with family members soon....not sure how to approach it?

                    Thanks Josh that's great info, I didn't realize it was 20% for Ashkenazi Levites, that's a fair number.

                      Behar's paper can be found in the Ydna section of the Ftdna library.

                        Levite Project

                        I'm amazed, I just started the Levite E3b Project two days ago and have had 750 visitors since. I may have been visiting 748 times to look in, but still

                        If anyone out there has Cohen or Levite traditions carrying the E3b haplotype...then this project is for you.

                        There have been moderate amount of people from both the Sephardic and Ashkenazi groups of E3b Levite's. How and why they got there? Who Knows? This question may never be answered apart from divine intervention.
                        This project is to determine relatedness among participants and links to common ancestors that may have existed prior to 70 AD Diaspora.

                        Other than that, I finally found what stops hairloss? It's the floor.

                          I guess that's why don't do comedy for a living. It all makes sense.

                            The article seems to cast mist on whether Aaron's descentants can ever find their linage through DNA tests. I guess it's a lesson of science that objective proof (it's observable in the blood) can make faith even more vital.

                            Way before DNA testing, the record keeping of the religious authorities somehow helped figure out who was descended from whom and the public had no problem accepting it. Luke (from the New Testament) records that Zechariah was "a member of the priestly order of Abijah. His wife, Elizabeth, was also from the priestly line of Aaron." Luke 1:5b Now, remember that Elizabeth and Mary (the mother of Jesus) were close relatives (cf Luke 1:36). Mary, of course, was from the tribe of Judah. Further on, Luke mentions that Anna the prophet was of the tribe of Asher (2:36). By the way, if Asher's descendants could be identified 2000 years ago, apparently someone back then didn't think tribes other than Judah and Benjamin were "lost."

                              Temple Records of Lineages

                              I totally concur, it seems that most of the Jewish polulation 2000 years ago would know their tribe due to the Temple Records of each family. Even to keep some of the major Feasts, there were three where every family had to come to Jerusalem to participate and be accounted for.

                              After the return from Babylonian captivity each person was accounted for, as to their tribe according to Ezra and Nehemia. Even in the New Testement, James addresses his epistle to the twelve tribes. Levites couldn't serve in the Temple unless they could prove their lineage. Zechariah, father of John the baptizer has an interesting lineage. His background, originating from the course our lineage of Abijah was first mentioned in I Chronicles 24. It appears he is descended from the fourth son of Aaron, Ithamar, and not Eleazar as many seem to say. Descendants of Ithamar were only regular priests, except for Eli and his line down to Abiathar at the time of Solomon (they were replaced by Zadokite line). The true high priests could only come from Eleazar then Zadok, being from the same lineage.

                              I'm sure even after the Diaspora of 70 AD most Jewish people kept strict records of lineages, but I'm sure it got destroyed and it became nearly impossible to keep records when you moved from place to place. The Rabbinical families were the only ones that continued to keep lineages even up to recent times for some of them, especially for those who descended from King David. Today, there are only three families that have the best records from father to son, starting from King David, Dayan, Charlap and Shaltiel.

                              I find it all very interesting!
