|E is the third most common haplogroup in Europe, after R1b and I1.
It is an ancient group that probably originated in the Middle East and
is presently universal around the Mediterranean becoming widespread across
northern and eastern Africa and southern Europe. Some of the oldest
populations in Britain (e.g., some Welsh towns) have concentrations
of E as high as 40%.
So far, three project members (plus a matching non-member) are Haplogroup
E, plus an individual who is not a project member (n in parentheses).
Haplogroup E is finely divided by SNP mutations, so your project admin
recommends being deep SNP tested. I also recommend joining the E-M35
project, which you can do from your member page. M78 is downstream
