About Dr. Jerome Lionel Blafer

The Blafer DNA is Haplotype J. Haplogroup: J2a4b1 (J-L556, L560) Subbranches: J2a-Y9005 and J2a-FGC20423/Y11782. A MEMBER OF THE WIRTH GROUP: WIRTH http://www.myheritage.com/dna-surname-project/WIRTH Admin: heyjude0701@gmail.com The WIRTH YDNA Group consists of families who performed YDNA tests at Family Tree DNA and who fall into the predominantly Jewish cluster of haplogroup J2a4b1 (J-L556, L560). The group is currently comprised of well over 100 families with different surnames and geographical roots. These families share matching or near matching 67 marker Y-DNA results as well as anomalies in their DNA signatures that make it a virtual certainty that they have a common paternal ancestor within a relatively recent timeframe (hundreds of years rather than thousands of years). New families exhibiting those DNA matches and anomalies are sought, to delve further into the likely origin and lifetime of that common ancestor, as well as into the migration paths of his descendants. The name of the group, WIRTH, is an acronym representing the first letters of the surnames of the group's founding families.

The following concerns the Treves double mutation. The Blafer gene does not have the mutation: A carrier of the double mutation Y-Chromosome gene marks a carrier as "a possible descendant of Moshe Treves, Baal Hatosafot (b.~1060). Later generations of the Treves family served as rabbis in Paris until Jews were expelled from France in 1394. SOURCE: http://bacharachdna.com/wp-content/uploads/WIRTH_Article_2014.pdf

Sent to me by Judy Simon of the WIRTH project: "It is possible that the knowledge of Cohane ancestry on your paternal line was lost many generations ago; many people find out of Cohane ancestry by DNA testing. And about half of known Cohanim who have had their Y-DNA tested match your Y-DNA, so there is no doubt that your paternal line were Cohanim two thousand years ago."
