First time I’ve heard about Loschbour Man, was somewhere when I researched ancient DNA (2017/2018). It could have been mix of Eupedia, GEDMATCH, FTDNA and YFULL as a source for me. And finally Sep-08-2019 I visited Luxembourg to meet my cousin 🙂
This article is about my small research the history of Martin Luther and his ancestors/descendants through genetic matches with people related to Luther surname, known as “von Luder”. Article is not claiming anything, and most probably will not bring up some discoveries.
В інтерв’ю (АЛ: 2010-го) „Експресу” автор нової праці „Історія українського народу” виклав сенсаційну концепцію докиївської України
„Давньоукраїнські міста Липсько. Дрезно, Пороги, Дубовиця…” — на столі перед журналістом та істориком Святославом Семенюком розгорнуті карта “Давня Україна-Русь (V—X ст.)” і понад 600-сторінкова книга “Історія українського народу”. “Як бачите, назви на мапі зазначені в дужках, — коментує автор цих праць — Бо тепер міста називаються… Лейпциг, Дрезден, Прага, Бухарест!“
Історична концепція Святослава Семенюка шокує, його висновки викликають природну недовіру. “Не може бути! Доведіть!” — вимагаємо ми.
This is my latest article for 2018, and I plan to update it at least during 2018, but for sure till next SNP discovered. Meanwhile, before you go next, here are previous articles in this topic:
- R1a vs. I2a (Jun-2014)
- I-CTS10228 (Jan-2015)
- I-Y4460 (Jun-2017)
- Big Y test results (Jan-2018)
- yfull.com results (Jun-2018)
New SNP – new article. It’s about new branches under Y4460, which appeared in FTDNA system, and later a bit in YFULL.
UPD. Aug-03-2019, I received Big Y-700 update.
Now, let’s dive into details.
I know YFULL service since maybe 2015, after I started more research in yDNA direction. At that time, I knew that it’s only yDNA tree representation, but I didn’t pay much attention how they do. Later on, 2015-2017, it becomes more popular, and they gave ability to upload DNA raw files to the system and for the dedicated payment they provide more detailed results. I ordered BigY test from FTDNA Aug-2017, but it was delivered only in Nov-2017. And I didn’t have BAM file from FTDNA, which was needed as input file for YFULL. Fortunately, YFULL implemented VCF file analysis, and I was able to upload it and to receive some preliminary results. Jan-2018 I ordered YFULL account based/using VCF (49$), and I knew, that later on I will be able to upgrade with free upload of BAM file. May-2018, FTDNA finally renewed BAM file generation. I requested, and after some time I receive BAM file. Then I uploaded to yfull, so my account upgraded. Jun-2018 got some results from YFULL in Upgrade section. But in fact not so much new info. Anyway, YFULL looks very active service, then have recently published v6.03.41 (Jul-2018), which looks to be following SemVer, and I expect their updates more frequent now. Aug-2019 I received new Big Y-700 results, new BAM file, and I re-uploaded to YFULL, which gave me new ID – YF64515.
This was long road for me to order Big Y test, and mostly it’s because I didn’t know the real benefit of it. Now is the time to analyze results. So far, there are 3 articles about my yDNA research here on LUND-IA-K blog:
Since 2014 till 2017 I was not sure, what Big Y can give me, but now I realized, that main purpose is to find out new SNP, potentially unique only in my Y chromosome (meaning in my yDNA ancestry). And with a hope, by having it done, it should help me to find male relatives (yDNA matches) a bit faster and maybe more precisely.
UPD: Sep-2018, I received great news – another DNA test result from Lithuania, based on FTDNA I2a haplogroup group managers showed similarity with my DNA. And it caused FTDNA to name a new branch I-Y128456.
UPD. Aug-02-2019, I received Big Y-700 update.
It’s about my genetics research since “Eve” till through my mother, based on Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), which is passed from mother to children, but only female can pass it through ages via birth. So son and daughter have mtDNA but only daughter can pass it further by heritage.
In 2014/2015 I did mtDNA tests via FamilyTreeDNA (FTDNA) for myself and in 2015/2016 for my mother. Based on mtDNA phylotree Build 17 (as feb-2017) my maternal ancestry belongs to H13a1d subclade. So far I continue research mtDNA community to get all possible information about my female ancestry.
