In Response To: E3a (M2) ()
E3a is the Y chromosome haplotype of most African American men. It means your forefathers came from West Africa or Bantu Central/Southern Africa. The earliest haplotypes of the Y chromosomes are A and B. They usually belong to pygmies or some East Africans.
Most men in Africa are an E. The men in East Africa are usually E3b.
