About Knut Ellingsson Rønneberg
YDNA = G2a3b1a2a (L42+) with DYS388=13 from test on Rolf H. Langland (b 1956, Minneapolis, Minn), the sixth great-grandson of Knut Ellingsson Rønneberg. It is believed that there are no living descendants of Knut still in Norway who carry the L42+ SNP, which is rarely found in Scandinavia.
The YDNA in this line was brought to America in 1867 by Sølfest Sølfestsson Langeland, great-great-grandson of Knut Ellingsson Rønneberg. In the generation of seventh great-grandsons of Knut Ellingsson Rønneberg there are only two direct-line male descendants - these being Thomas G. Langland (b. 1990, Monterey, CA) and Richard M. Hodgson (b. 1988, Newburgh, NY).
Who were the ancestors of Knut Ellingson Rønneberg? "For the true life story of a single one of them, telling why he decided to cross the sea, where he landed, and in what manner he wrought and thought – for that how gladly would we give whole libraries of later record! But the past is inexorable in its silence." - G.M. Trevelyan
Knut Ellingsson Rønneberg kan ha tilhørt den sjeldne Y-haplogruppe G.
WIKIPEDIA: The G2a3b1 definable subgroups are heavily concentrated throughout Europe west of the Black Sea and Russia where G2a3b1 is often in the majority among G persons. Small percentages of G2a3b1 are found primarily in the area encompassed by Turkey, the southern Caucasus countries, Iran and the Middle East where the G2a3b1 SNP may have originated. G2a3b1 is also found in India.
The largest G2a3b1 subgroup based on available samples is one in which almost all persons have the value of 13 at STR marker DYS388. There are additional subgroups of DYS388=13 men characterized by the presence of specific SNPs or uncommon STR marker oddities.
The next largest G2a3b1 subgroup is characterized by the presence of the L13/S13 SNP. This subgroup is most common in north central Europe.
New testing in 2010 indicates that a substantial G2a3b1 subgroup characterized by having the U1 mutation (G2a3b1a1) may exist primarily in the Caucasus Mountains region which has been poorly tested for U1.
The final major subgroup is characterized in a high percentage of cases by the values of 9 at marker DYS568 and 20,21 at marker YCA. This latter DYS568=9 subgroup contains a further large subgroup consisting overwhelmingly of Ashkenazi Jews.
The highest percentage of G2a3b1 persons in a discrete population so far described is in the island of Ibiza off the eastern Spanish coast.
