1356Krupa Theory Ashina>>Khazars>>Askenazi Linked by Q1b is Not Supported by Science
- Aug 22, 2010Dear Q1b Cousins - It has been a while since I have posted.
One of our Q1b cousins, Alfred Krupa, has spent a lot of thoughtful time
and research attempting to link the Royal Ashinas, an almost mythical
group from a place in northwestern China near the intersection of China
with Mongolia and Kazakhstan. He theorizes that it may have been his own
family, Krupa, and the yDNA Q1b that provided the link from the Royal
Family of the Ashina with the Royal Family of the Khazars and that this
linkage is the source of Ashkenazi Q1b yDNA.
Freddy and I have been debating this in another forum and I thought I
would share this brief summary here.
While at one time many of us thought that the Khazars may have been the
source of our Q yDNA this was before the M378 SNP had been discovered
and before so much more information was known about our group. This
linkage no longer makes sense.
It appears that the Ashkenazi Jewish Q1b, with 67 markers tested, share
a common ancestor about 800 years ago. This is far too recent for the
Khazars which dissolved as a nation over 1,000 years ago or the
Radhanites (my recent theory) who went out of business over 1,000 years
Based on the 2003 study by Behar et al published early 2004 almost all
Haplogroup Q males in Central Europe are Jewish. The Khazars who merged
in with the Hungarians, Austrians and a few other countries would have
spread their Q yDNA among the gentiles as well as the Jews had they
been the source. This is not supported by the science. The Khazarian
Haplogroup would be one where there are many gentiles as well as Jews.
The best candidate for Khazarian yDNA is R1a.
The theory that the Khazars were the source of our Q1b haplogroup among
the Ashkenazi Jewish people is now contra-factual (i.e. not true).
I do not believe Freddy Krupa has conceded this point at all.
Another point is that if he were the source of the M378 SNP for all the
rest of us his STRs would be closer to the mode of all our SYS counts.
However, he is on the fringe. He is not near the mode. It does not
follow that he would be the source. Palmer and Abrams are right on the
mode and are far from Krupa.
I see no Q1b links us to the Royal Ashina or the Royal Khazars.is now in
the category of nonsense and a hoax.
I am sure Freddy will disagree but he has argued this with me endlessly.
I am not convinced.
Regards to all
