Re: [Ashkenazi-Q] Predominant trade among Russian Jews
- Now it would be something if Q1b1's were found to come from King David, youngest son of Jesse. Dave mentioned coming possibly from the Middle East in his last report. That would mean only going back to about 1,000 BCE when King David lived. The Irish and Scots have the higher % of red-heads in the world. For most people, it's only about 1-2% of the population. There is a variation in the Mc1r gene and is recessive, according to Wikipedia.

Red hair is found in a lot of Russian Jews. That is not commonly found among Jews of other groups: German, Arabic, Mizrahi, Afghanistan, India, China, etc. It is also not a common trade attributed to Russians. When I was in a school of 800 people, I only remember seeing one other red haired person. It is extremely rare in Russia, but among us Jews, it vas almost one in 4.
Khazars are attributed with having red hair, blue eyes. Turk have a high frequency of having red hair. Arabs have always come up to me and knowing I'm from Russia always smiled and told me that Turkey is full of redheads.
