Y-DNA Haplogroup N

From Africa to Asia to northeast Europe


The common direct paternal ancestor of all men alive today was born in Africa between 300,000 and 150,000 years ago. When humans left Africa, they migrated across the globe in a web of paths that spread out like the branches of a tree, each limb of migration identifiable by a marker in our DNA.
Paternal ancestors to haplogroup N made a turn through Central-Asia and South-East Asia. Many from this lineage moved inland and settled in southern Asia. Others moved on and eventually turned west. Early inhabitants of Siberia experienced a population bottleneck where only a few descendant lines survived the harsh living conditions. Around 10,000 years ago, the populations in Siberia began to grow and expand once more. Some from this group then continued west into northeastern Europe.
Today, this lineage remains in some East Asian populations. In the male population of Tokushima, Japan, it is between 1 and 2 percent of the population. In Taiwan, it contributes to 2 to 4 percent of male lineages. Moving west, it is 10 percent of the Sojot, 16 percent of the Khakassian, 25 percent of the Koryaks, and 27 percent of the Tofalar. It is 80 to 94 percent of Yakut male lineages. Toward Europe, it is 31 percent of Estonians, 42 percent of Latvians, 37 percent of Lithuanians, and about 6 percent of Ukrainians. In Finland, it contributes to between 58 and 77 percent of the male population. In Norway, it is between 5 and 7 percent of the male population.
