R1b1 Distribution

Thought it would be helpful to outline the distribution of the R1b haplogroup.  My own JONES surname haplogroup is R1b1a2.  The counties (areas) with the highest per cent are listed:

Welsh (Anglesey)                            89%  n=88
Basque (French/Spanish)                88%  n=67
Bashkirs (Turkic People)                86%  n=43
Irish                                                 82%  n=222
Scots                                               77%  n=61
Spanish (Minorca)                          73%  n=37
Dutch (Germanic West)                  70%  n=27

For those of Welsh descent...here we are...right at top!  That Celtic genome it is.
