Frisian, Anglo-Saxon or Danish
Frisian Signature referring to the Frisian Coast of Northern Germany
Possible mutation from Viking migration / Baltic Sea Trade (Source)
Famous person with same Haplotype: Ulysses S. Grant (18th) (1822-1885)
Confirmed R1b-U106 carriers include:
The House of Bourbon
The House of Wettin
James K. Polk (L48+ according to the Polk-Pollock DNA Project)
Ulysses S. Grant (U106 > L47 > Z159 according to the Grant DNA Project)
James D. Watson
J. Craig Venter
The most predominant is the Germanic lineage R1b-U106>Z159, common in the Low Countries and the Scottish Lowlands (Anglians, and later Flemish settlers?). –source
“not believed to have been associated with the early inhabitants of the British Isles (Celts, Picts, etc.) or with the Germanic mercenaries whom the Romans brought with them to England. It more likely arrived in Britain after the Roman withdrawal – with the Angle/Saxon/Frisian invaders in the 5th-8th centuries, with the Norse/Danish Viking invaders in the 9th-10th centuries, or with the Norman invaders in the 11th century.” – source
R1b-U106 is a patrilineal descended family that appears to descend from an ancestral R1b group located among or near the Yamnaya culture, north of the Black Sea area. The group rose to significance in southern Germany and the surrounding areas probably a bit before 3000 BC.
DNA Explained: Yamnaya –
Although U106 is found all over Europe, and in countries that Europeans have migrated to, it is most significant in Germany and surrounding countries, Scandinavia, and Britain. Depending on which branch of U106 a member descends from, the people on that branch adapted to a variety of different cultures along the way, including various derivatives of Slavic, Latin, Celtic, Belgae, Saxon, Viking, and other cultural groups. U106 is a family, not a culture. Some families of the historic nobility have paperwork ancestry that reaches back farther into The Genealogical Gap of the Dark Ages. This enables us to compare the paperwork to the DNA as follows: both the Bourbon family of the Spanish and the former French Royal families, and the Wettin family of Saxe-Coburg from which the British and the Belgian Royal families, and the former Portuguese and Bulgarian Royal families descend, are confirmed to descend from the Z381 Branch of R1b-U106. The Bourbons are highly probable to descend via Z156, while the Wettins definitely descend via Z156 and its subclade DF98. See also http://www.the-kings-son.com/royal_wettin_haplogroup
Meanwhile, the discoverer of DNA, Dr. James Watson, and along with him, the other scientist who together were the first to have their DNA mapped, Dr. Craig Venter, and along with them, the notable advocate for Genetic Genealogy, Dr. Spencer Wells, are all members of Haplogroup R1b-U106 via it’s major branch L48. We accept the publicity benefit these folks bring to R1b-U106.
Age of Major Branches:
U106 = about 3100 BC
Z18 = about 2200 BC
Z156 = about 3000 BC
L1 = about 1400 BC
U198 = about 1600 BC
L48 = about 2600 BC
L47 = about 2300 BC
Z8 = about 1200 BC
Z326 = about 1300 BC
per Dr Iain McDonald’s analysis.
