Y-haplogroup G on Wikipedia
In human genetics, Haplogroup G (M201) is a Y-chromosome haplogroup. It is a branch of Haplogroup F (M89). Haplogroup G has an overall low frequency in most populations but is widely distributed within many ethnic groups of the Old World in Europe, northern and western Asia, northern Africa, the Middle East, India, Sri Lanka and Malaysia.
Various estimated dates and locations have been proposed for the origin of Haplogroup G. The National Geographic Society places haplogroup G origins in the Middle East 10-20,000 years ago and presumes that people carrying the haplogroup took part in the spread of the Neolithic. Two scholarly papers have also suggested an origin in the Middle East, while differing on the date. Semino et al. (2000) suggested 17,000 years ago. Cinnioglu et al. (2004) suggested the mutation took place only 9,500 years ago. However Campbell and Tischoff (2010) reappraised the whole Y-DNA tree and estimated G in Asia around 17,000 years ago, with G2 occurring approximately 15,000 years ago.
The oldest skeleton confirmed by ancient DNA testing as carrying haplogroup G was found at the Neolithic cemetery of Derenburg Meerenstieg II, north central Germany, with burial artifacts there belonging to the Linear Pottery culture, known in German as Linearbandkeramik (LBK). This skeleton could not be dated by radiocarbon dating, but other skeletons there were dated to between 5,100 and 6,100 years old. The most detailed SNP mutation identified was S126 (L30), which defines G2a3. The only other ancient DNA skeletons with haplogroup G were found in present-day Bavaria, southern Germany, and date to the early Middle Ages.
G2a3b1a2a - L42+/S146+)
About a fourth of DYS388=13 men have this L42/S146 mutation. Swiss G2a3b1a men are more likely than average to belong to this subgroup. L42/S146 could be nearly as old as the DYS388=13 mutation (over 2,500 yrs.) based on the number of value differences seen in 67-marker STR samples.
The SNP that characterizes G2a3b1a2a was first identified in a listing of SNP results from testing at 23andMe. It was independently developed as a separate test by both Family Tree DNA as L42 and by Ethnoancestry as S146. The technical specifications for this SNP are as follows:....position on Y chromosome is 15170153.....forward primer is CTCACAATAGGCAGCATCCCCTCAG.....reverse primer is CAGAAAAAGGGAGCATATGACCAAGG.....the mutation involves a change from C to A.

G in Europe
Farther west, the presence of haplogroup G is much less uniform. In Europe there are concentrations of haplogroup G in northern Sardinia, where it reaches levels of about 25%, across northeastern Italy where G reaches about 12%, and in parts of southern France and the Tyrol region of western Austria. There are even a few examples of haplogroup G in Sweden, where it is generally found at levels of less than 4%. One exception is the province of eastern Sweden known as Uppsala, where G is found in 12% of men.
