Gramenz DNA Project Results

Gramenz DNA Project Results

As expected the results of the Gramenz DNA and surname project are very diverse.

By now male Gramenz lines belong to the following Y-DNA haplogroups: R1a1a, E1b1b1*
By now female Gramenz lines belong to the following mtDNA haplogroups: V, HV12, T1

Our family has passed several genealogical Y-DNA and mtDNA tests just for fun. In contrast to the other results the result of our Y-DNA - that is the paternal Gramenz line - was as clear as surprising. The haplotype could be associated certainly to an ancient people. We have also found a genetic cousin with a genetic distance of only 3 at 67 tested STR markers. With a certainty of 94% we share a common male ancestor up to the 12th generation. He also affirmed the result of the membership of the ancient people.

A recently performed Y-DNA test of another Gramenz line has shown that our two lines are not related. However, an indication was found that the ancestors of both lines may have been connected neighborly once.

Another Y-DNA test of a member of a northern branch of the Gramenz South Posen Group C has shown that the C3 Steindorf Gramenz line is related to most of the members of the Nort Posen Group and maybe even to all of them.

If You have already passed a Y-DNA test You can check right here online if there is a possibility of kinship:

The result is absolutely anonymous for non-members.
