Paternal Haplogroup:R1b1b2a1a1* Proto-Germanic
Region: Europe
R1b1b2a1a1* is a subgroup of R1b1b2
R1b1b2a1a1 is most commonly found on the fringes of the North Sea.

Haplogroup R1b1b2a1a1
Today R1b1b2a1a1 is found mostly on the fringes of the North Sea in England, Germany and the Netherlands, where it reaches levels of one-third. That distribution suggests that some of the first men to bear the haplogroup in their Y-chromosomes were residents of Doggerland, a real-life Atlantis that was swallowed up by rising seas in the millennia following the Ice Age.

Doggerland was a low-lying region of forests and wetlands that must have been rich in game; today, fishing trawlers in the North Sea occasionally dredge up the bones and tusks of the mastodons that roamed there. Doggerland had its heyday between about 12,000 years ago, when the Ice Age climate began to ameliorate, and 9,000 years ago, when the meltwaters of the gradually retreating glaciers caused sea levels to rise, drowning the hunter's paradise. Doggerland's inhabitants retreated to the higher ground that is now the North Sea coast.

now more often referred to as U-106 or less frequently as M405, is a mutation that is now believed to have occurred about 3,100 to 3,900 years ago. It currently has four subclades which help to pinpoint the ancestors who show these particular identifying markers to a specific region in a specific time frame -
R1b1b2a1a1 (U106 also known as S21)
It appears to represent over 25% of the entire R1b group. "The subclade appears to be omnipresent in Europe, although it becomes less pronounced in Ireland (5.9%) and France (7.1%) and, further towards the Mediterranean, low values are measured in Italy (3.5%), and Turkey (0.4%). The frequency of this subclade remains unknown in certain parts of Europe such as Iberia and the Balkans."
Clades - U198/S29/M405, S26/L1/DYS439(null), L48/S162 (comprising L44, L45, L46, L47), L5, L6, P89.2, P107
