The tracing of Jewish genealogy DNA family lines are easier than most other groups in the world. This is because of the written history of the Jewish people in the bible. One of the first books of this holy text is dedicated to the family lines from the tribes that originated in old world Judea has been a source of great help in this endeavor.
Other advantages that have been found in the past 35 years with the tracing of this particular line of DNA is the identification of genetic diseases that are mostly isolated to this human family tree. The first one identified and studied was the gene that causes Tay Sachs Disease.
Since this genetic marker was first identified and people of this community encouraged to be tested for it, there has been a reduction by 90% of the Jewish children born with this fatal disease.
Researchers did not stop at just one disease and today researchers have identified over 25 genetic markers that are connected to inherited diseases of the Ashkenazim Jews.
The Jewish ancestry for Eastern Europe has been traced to the Y-DNA haplogroups J and E which are associated with ancestors from the Middle East. This places these family lines to be closely related to people of Kurdish, Armenian, Palestinian Arab, Lebanese, Syrian and Anatolian Turkish descended people.
The Yemenite Jews family trees have been traced back include Arabs and the original Israelites from biblical times.
Because of marriages with non-Jewish people there are other genetic markers present in most Jewish families DNA.
There are many unknowns still but one fact has emerged from the Jewish genealogy DNA. This is that all modern Jews with descendants from the biblical Israelites belong to the Y-DNA haplogroupgs J and E. The non-Israelites Jews belong to the Y-DNA haplogroupgs Q and R1a1. Learn where your family came from by studying your own DNA.
