This group is for anyone who has been given an E1b1b haplogroup designation. (Regardless of surname or location)

The E1b1b haplogroup, The Early Farmers, originated in east Africa. Descendants of populations of the Early Farmers can still be found there as well as in Senegal in the west and in Bantu-speaking populations in South Africa and Kenya. Many of the Early Farmers migrated from eastern Africa 25,000 years ago, finally settling in northern Africa, the Near East, and in Europe (particularly around the Mediterranean).This group makes up subgroup E1b1b1.

A subgroup of the Early Farmers, E1b1b1a probably moved north from east Africa about 16,000 years ago and settled along the Mediterranean coast, in parts of the Middle East, Europe and northwestern Africa. The Early Farmers migrated still further, and their descendants can be found in about 10% of men in the Ukraine, Hungary, Romania and Slovakia. It is likely that a population of Early Farmers in the northern parts of Africa sailed across the Mediterranean and settled in Iberia (parts of modern day Spain and Portugal), Italy and Greece. Today's populations reflect that movement, allowing 15 to 30% of Greeks, Bulgarians and Albanians to claim the Early Farmers as their ancient ancestors.
