Sinclair DNA - AMH Lineage
Click any one of these to follow the AMH lineage's complete path through time
UPDATE - The descendants of Alexander Sinkler now fall into a new SNP called R-L193. Details on the video below. An extensive report is being prepared now.
AMH is the descriptive term used by James F. Wilson, founder of EthnoAncestry, to characterize the most common haplotype in parts of Europe.(84) Many of our participants are part of the Atlantic Modal Haplotype, the most successful breeders since the last ice age. And, because these folks stayed in
The AMH Group is the Base Lineage
The DYS390 Atlantic group shows very
little diversity among
it’s alleles and this makes it the "youngest" R1b in
In the Atlantic region, R1b's DYS=390 showed the least diversity. A sample of 1,516 haplotypes showed its R1b's DYS390 percentages to be:
DYS 390=25... 10.4%.
DYS 390=24... 69.7%.
DYS 390=23... 17.8%.
DYS 390=22... 1.1%.
The markers below are the definition of the Atlantic Modal Haplotype. Compare your own markers to see how far away from the AMH you are. Being just 2 markers off is not considered a significant distance, but in my opinion, it depends on the markers. DYS390, for instance, puts you into a different lineage.
In my opinion, it’s significant that none of our participants who hit directly on the AMH are also S21+. All are S21-. This means the AMH and S21 are excellent ways to divide up our family. But note that S21 is “downstream” of the AMH - "downstream" means it happened after that mutation that separated the R1 and R1b groups. This AMH and S21 split was after that period.
According to the accepted methods of analysis, our Germanic participant, our DYS390=25 participants, and our S21+ participants all fall within the AMH. A note of caution - this study made its assumptions based on only 7 alleles, as you can see above. Now that we’re testing with 67 and 111-markers, we have to look at all this with a slight bit of skepticism. Things change rapidly in DNA and we have to keep our eye on assumptions based on so few markers.
