Our R-L21 Haplogroup of Robinson
We follow: DYS# 19 DYS# 390 DYS#391 DYS# 392 DYS# 393
14 21 11 13 12 and this is usually a 13
So, where did we originate from? I find this DYS#390 is fairly common among the Celts and their Teutonic brethren living along the North Sea Coast according to one resource. It could be Iberian which it is in 2 our of 3 hits. Galicia and the Serasbourg area have a history of Celtic settlement.
One study showed the European-Americans living in Indiana had a 2.94% with this haplogroup. Santiqago de Compostela, Galicia had a 0.97% and Strasbourg, Alsace had a 1.01%. My 2nd source below lists many Black communities with #390 =21.
At familytreedna we match 3 people out of 23,386 tested from England at 12 alleles This is a 0.1% of the English population. We had 25 matches from Ireland at a 1 step mutation at 12 alleles. We had one match at 12 alleles with Ireland. At 67 alleles we still had only the one match with a distance of 5 and that was with England.
