Yes the IndoEuro language family basically ranges/extends geographically from India to N/W Europe.

Chronologically the (Proto) Indo European homeland is not for certain located, suggestions has included Sinkiang, Danube, above the Caucasus, etc.
Indian and Hittite (and Greek) are among the oldest extant/recorded members of the family.
Some historians give evidence that the Danubian culture was home of Indo-European, others considered Battle Axe culture the first Indo-Europeans in Europe.
I previously thought Indian/Indus was the oldest IE branch but now looks like might be Hittite or unrecorded common ancestor in Danubian area, or Kassite??. Sumerian is probably the oldest prior to the oldest proto-Indo-European.

(P)IEs may be either Kittim, Dodanim, or Tiras in Genesis 10. See my thread/topic on the Japhethites.

Some suggest that Aryana-Vaejo homeland of Aryans in Indo-Iranian myth was in Arran area (Azerbiajan).

Alot of the words and names in the different branches of IE (incl German/Norse, Celt, Latin, Hellenic, Illyrian/Albanian, Hittite, Armenian, Iranian, Scythian, Indian, Tocharian) are very similar/close.

Dyaus(Pitar) (Indian)
Zeus (pater) (Roman)
Tiwaz/Tyr (Germanic/Norse)

*If* DyausPitar/ZeusPater = Ziusudra = Japheth/Diphath = Djehewty/Thoth, then Dilmun may be linked with "AryanaVaejo". Dilmun candidates include somewhere in Armenia, Danube, Indus.

In Iranian i remember reading that the Sayrima/Salm were "east then west" and Tur was "west then east".
Indian seems older than Iranian.

I state that however many things i am wrong/dumb about don't mean i am all wrong/dumb about everything nor that others are all right about everything.

~80 years ago H. Himmler sent SS expeditions ( yeah, like in 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' - but not fictional)
out to find evidence of the ancient Ayran roots of Germany, right up through the Himalayas..

Dunno where his research data materials/findings are now..
