In Response To: Haplogroup E3a (M2) ()
Here is something I found in a Google search.
"There exists a west-to-east as well as a south-to-north clinal distribution with respect to E3a-M2.
From reading this, it appears to me that your Y-chromosome has a very high likelihood of being from west Africa [Bamileke or Benin], with a lower possibility of being from east Africa [Kenya or Tanzania].
Do a web search for "Haplogroup e3a (m2)" and you will get lots of hits, some from other people posting queries on various forums and some from scientific journals with lots of dense jargon.
I am going to have to spend some serious time with the Megan Smolenyak/Ann Turner book on DNA testing. Their book is specifically geared to DNA testing for genealogy.
Check for it at your library. I got the copy I am reading from my local library.
