Haplogroup Q

This page is about the Y chromosome haplogroup Q. Its purpose is to explain the genealogical and anthropological meanings of the determination.

If you are coming to this page directly, you may want to read first about haplogroups in general; you will probably need the background.

Project Members

As of this writing, Taylor Family Genes has three members in this haplogroup, about 0.4% of the total membership.

About this Haplogroup

Haplogroup Q is believed to have originated 17 to 22 kya in Central Asia, the Indian Subcontinent or Siberia.

It is most frequent today among American Indians and a small area in northern Russia. It's found in 94% of South American indigenous people, 25-50% of Na-Dené speakers and 46% of Eskimo-Aleut men.

Members of this haplogroup may want to consider joining the DNA project for it. See http://www.familytreedna.com/public/ydna_q/ or one of those listed at http://www.isogg.org/wiki/Y-DNA_haplogroup_projects.
