Assyrian y-DNA distribution compared to Lebanese Maronite y-DNA distribution. Lebanese Maronite data source: Y-Chromosomal Diversity in Lebanon Is Structured by Recent Historical Events. Two Assyrian samples (J2, G), from the Lebanon study, were included as part of the Assyrian y-DNA sample set (as they will be going forward).
Same chart, two views. Maronite J2 3x Assyrian J2. Assyrian R1b 3x Maronite R1b. I did not expect that. Although I was not expecting parity, particularly regarding J2, such disparate a percentage, to me, is difficult to make sense of. Any folks care to opine?
