Shepard / Shepherd Paternal DNA Haplogroup I-M253

Haplogroup I1-AngloSaxon is the most common form of I1. It is most frequent in the Netherlands, northwestern Germany, and Denmark and is present at lower frequencies in eastern and southern Germany, southern Sweden, and the British Isles. FTDNA test results show this haplogroup as I-M253. Y-DNA test results at 23andMe show this SNP to be I-P109. I-P109 is a subclade of I-M253.

I-P109 A mostly southern Scandinavian subclade, with a presence in all the regions settled by the Danish Vikings. It has been found sporadically in many parts of Europe, such as western Iberia, northern Italy, the Balkans, Lithuania and Russia.

Paternal DNA Haplogroup: I-M253

A Y-STR is a short tandem repeat (STR) on the Y-chromosome. Y-STRs are often used in forensics, paternity, and genealogical DNA testing. Y-STRs are taken specifically from the male Y chromosome. The Y chromosome is only found in males, which are only passed down by the father, making the Y chromosome in any paternal line practically identical. Y-DNA STR markers change (mutate) often enough that most men who share the same STR results also share a recent paternal lineage.
