Haplogroup Q STR111 tree

Today, I want to present the haplogroup Q STR111 tree. To do so I used the same method as before. The number of individuals is fairly small (N=47) and the ethnic background of these tested individuals is mostly European, so the whole diversity of haplogroup Q is not covered. However, some observation can be still made.
The clearest split within haplogroup Q can be seen between haplogroup Q1a and Q1b, and this split is visible with using STR111 data only.

Most of the Q1b individuals from Europe have paternal Ashkenazi ancestry, and they form a cluster (red). The Huff/Hoff family from the Netherlands (purple) are represented with multiple individuals (Unk-191247, Unk-159126, Net-166843, Net-133381, Unk-127754, Net-169897, Ger--81111, Net-189374, Unk-165855, Unk-156072). From the Huff individual Unk-156072 we know that they have haplogroup Q1b1a. In this tree the Huff/Hoff family from the Netherlands is forming the second cluster within Q1b.
Contrary, haplogroup Q1a2-M25 does not show a clear clustering, which highlights its age. 

Haplogroup Q1a3a1 (cyan-blue) is "Native American". All Q1a3a1 individuals in the presented trees below are from Northern America.
