2 M242 M60 M91 M130 M96 M201 M168 M52 M89 M170M304 M9 M175 M45 M173 The final lineage to arise from the Y-chromosome tree appeared about 15,000 years ago in Central Asia when a mutation, called M242, occurred in a man on the M45 line. This mutation marks haplogroup Q. NEXT

3 yDNA Haplogroup Q

4 15,000 BC M173 M45 M242 As opposed to the earlier R (M173) lineage, which had migrated west into Europe, most Q-men (M242) followed the endless grasslands of Central Asia to the east. NEXT

5 15,000 BC M173 M45 M242 M3 Toward the eastern end of haplogroup Q’s range in Siberia a later mutation (M3) occurred to produce the subclade called Q3. This is the group to which all Native American men belong. NEXT Juan Pablo Mexico Raymundo Peru

6 15,000 BC M173 M45 M242 M3 After the appearance of the M242 mutation more than 99% of haplogroup Q men migrated eastward into Siberia or the New World. A few, however, turned west to colonize parts of Scandinavia. One such westward-traveling Q-man was Prof. Alan Almquist’s deep paternal ancestor, whose descendants settled in Sweden and eventually emigrated to America. NEXT Alan Sweden
