Kurdish Tribes Y-DNA Haplogroups

Updated: 10.06.2017

Today, I want to present some Kurdish tribes Y-DNA haplogroup results across the Kurdistan. Thanks to project admin of Dersim DNA Project for his work.

For Dêrsim region I've used Nuri Dêrsimî's nomenclature for the tribes from his book "Dêrsim in the history of Kurdistan" (1952)


Not to forget to mention we have a new blog called FeyliDnaProject.blogspot. We received many Feyli results thanks to him.

Also checkout the Feyli.se website if you want to learn more about Feyli Kurdish tribes mentioned below.
