My Y DNA is I1b2a1 Isles which is found in the British Isles and possibly Sardinia. But it is much older than the R1b usually found in that area. The Iberian Peninsula is one of the areas that is sited for the place of origin unlike the Balkans for some of the other I haplogroups. Also, my MTdna is H3 which is traced back to southern Europe and/or the Iberian peninsula.
The documentary White Slaves, Pirate Gold mentioned the Barbary Pirates coming to the shores of Ireland and capturing people to sell as slaves in northern Africa and Morocco.
My interest is in southern Europe and northern Africa and how European and African blood might have mixed prior to slaves being brought to America.
My husband's MTdna is L3e3 and he has only one match who has the Ysrael/Israel surname. So that is my interest in eastern Africa. All of the remainder of my Y test results are E3a.
I am going to check out the links that you mentioned. Thanks.
