Assyrian Heritage DNA Project

Jun-27-2012 at 07:27 AM (UTC+3 Nineveh, Assyria)

Assyrian Heritage DNA Project
by Family Tree DNA - Genealogy by Genetics, Ltd. Assyrian Heritage.

Background

Who should join the Assyrian Heritage DNA Project?

The Assyrian areas in the Middle East from which modern-day Assyrians have their origins are the Urmia region in Iran, the Hakkari Mountains in Turkey extending from the Iran border into southeastern Turkey, and northern Iraq, all of which was the Assyrian heartland for the last several centuries. Before a participant can join the Assyrian Heritage DNA Project, he or she must inform the DNA Project's co-administrators (Mary Yonan yonan < a t> fgi.net and Joel Elias joandjoa < a t> pacbell.net) about which of those three regions is the site of his/her maternal and/or paternal Assyrian ancestral origin. Participants wishing to order a maternal mtDNA test must be able to trace his or her maternal Assyrian roots back to those areas within four or fewer generations. Participants wishing to order a Y-chromosome DNA (Y-DNA) test must be able to trace his paternal Assyrian roots back to those areas within four or fewer generations. If a potential Assyrian Hertiage DNA Project applicant can't provide the requested info, we won't approve joining our project.

If your father's and/or your mother's ancestor's were Assyrians from the Assyrian heartland, you are invited to join the Assyrian Heritage DNA Project. Our DNA Project welcomes all direct line male and female descendants of Assyrian heritage whose ancestors were from the Middle East.

Why Should I Join the Assyrian Heritage DNA Project?

This is an opportunity for you, as an Assyrian, to order a DNA test kit and expand the Assyrian DNA database. By doing so, you will help to make sure that the genetic and historical past of Assyrians, which has been overlooked for too long, will begin to achieve its deserved recognition by the world. Participation in the Assyrian Heritage DNA Project by many Assyrians will raise our visibility as a significant Middle Eastern ethnic group that continues to thrive in the twenty-first century.

Every national or heritage group represents a mixture of many different peoples going back over tens of thousands of years. The DNA Project will help Assyrians discover what are technically called their Haplogroups, which are the early branches of human ancestry, and learn about the migration paths of their ancient ancestors.

Assyrian \ã-'sir-é-an\ adj or n (1998)   1:  descendants of the ancient empire of Ashur   2:  the Assyrians, although representing but one single nation as the direct heirs of the ancient Assyrian Empire, are now doctrinally divided, inter sese, into five principle ecclesiastically designated religious sects with their corresponding hierarchies and distinct church governments, namely, Church of the East, Chaldean, Maronite, Syriac Orthodox and Syriac Catholic.  These formal divisions had their origin in the 5th century of the Christian Era.  No one can coherently understand the Assyrians as a whole until he can distinguish that which is religion or church from that which is nation -- a matter which is particularly difficult for the people from the western world to understand; for in the East, by force of circumstances beyond their control, religion has been made, from time immemorial, virtually into a criterion of nationality.   3:  the Assyrians have been referred to as Aramaean, Aramaye, Ashuraya, Ashureen, Ashuri, Ashuroyo, Assyrio-Chaldean, Aturaya, Chaldean, Chaldo, ChaldoAssyrian, ChaldoAssyrio, Jacobite, Kaldany, Kaldu, Kasdu, Malabar, Maronite, Maronaya, Nestorian, Nestornaye, Oromoye, Suraya, Syriac, Syrian, Syriani, Suryoye, Suryoyo and Telkeffee. — Assyrianism verb

Aramaic \ar-é-'máik\ n (1998)   1:  a Semitic language which became the lingua franca of the Middle East during the ancient Assyrian empire.   2:  has been referred to as Neo-Aramaic, Neo-Syriac, Classical Syriac, Syriac, Suryoyo, Swadaya and Turoyo.
