HIGHEST HAPLOGROUP OF NATION-E1B1B-27%
Y-DNA haplogroups in Greece:
Origin of European & Greek haplogroups:
J2=is widely believed to be associated with the spread of agriculture from Mesopotamia (Iraq and Syria).
The clade J2f1 (5ky) considered that first appeared in the Aegean region and participated in the Greek colonization. The clade J2e (4ky) is common in Greece and Albania and also considered to have origins in the southern Balkans.
J2 in Greece has Europeanized and is completely Hellenic.
E1b1b1a (E-M78)= is thought to have an African origin.
Within Europe, E-V13 is especially common in the Balkans and some parts of Italy. In different studies, particularly high frequencies have been observed in Kosovar Albanians (45.6%) (Peri?ic et al. (2005)), Albanian speakers in the Republic of Fyrom (34.4% reported in Battaglia et al. (2008)), and in some parts of Greece (about 35% in some of the areas studied by King et al. (2008). More generally, high frequencies have also been found in other areas of Greece, and amongst Bulgarians, Romanians, Fyromians and Serbs.
Greeks belong to the genetic cluster E-M78á which is Greek and southern Balkanian.
E1b1b1a in Greece has Europeanized and is completely Hellenic.
R1b=originated in Asia.
R1a=originated somewhere within Eurasia.
I1= It is thought to have arrived from the Middle East.
I2= might have originated in central Europe, southeastern Europe or even West Asia.
N=the origins of this haplogroup arising from southeast Asia.
Conclusion=No European population is really native European, all are outsiders.
