Irish Haplogroup, R1b Meaning for Robinsons

Mayo, Ireland:  The paternal DNA lineages were less diverse (88% of participants were haplogroup R1b), likely a result of the dominance of a few male leaders like King Niall of the Nine hostages, as well as the historical influence of the Viking raids from across the North Sea.

Our family of Robinsons are R1b1a2a1a1b4 with DYS#393 being 12, and not 13.  The 12 tells us our matches are in Ireland and not England.  There are many Robinsons with a 13 for #393, but it's rare to find the 12like ours.  


Update: on R1b1a2a1a1b4
