    Question Common Y-chromosome group in Poland, Lithuania and Latvia

    The most common Y-chromosome group found in Poland is also most common in Lithuania and Latvia.

    Its signature is:

    DYS385a=10
    DYS385b=14
    DYS389i=13
    DYS389ii=30
    DYS390=25
    DYS391=10
    DYS392=11
    DYS393=13
    DYS394=17

    The above haplotype (and its one and two step variations) seems to be a
    Poland/Latvia/Lithuania area specific version of HG3. It was the single most
    common haplotype (4.5%) found in the 919 Polish males sampled - but seems to have a much lower frequency of occurence outside Poland.

    What does this mean in terms of the relationship between the Balts and Poles? Remember that the Balts have very high levels of Tat-C, while Poles do not. Therefore, is the above haplogroup the ancient Indo-European link between the Slavs and Balts, from before the latter soaked up a lot of Finno0Ugrian blood and thus Tat-C???

    There could be more explanations but I think Poles were attracted by beauty of Baltic girls

    Could be true. We did control those lands for centuries...

    Medieval Poland was more democratic comparing with boyars who were the fathers of village not only in metaphoric meaning. I think you have heard about “first night” prerogative.
