YDNA maps Scandinavian Family Trees from Medieval Times and the Viking Age


Published on

Peter Sjolund's presentation on YDNA maps Scandinavian Family Trees from Medieval Times and the Viking Age from the 2015 International Conference on Genetic Genealogy.

  • As for that sibirian mtDNA: People did actually walk or use small boats along the rivers between Botnia bay and the coast of Norway. People did also move over land (and ice) from east to west in the north. Its even pictured in the old map if you look at it! What is it with the swedes that everyone living in the north MUST have moved there from the south of Sweden? People lived by the Botnia Bay long before Sweden made it into a colony. And they travelled in all directions. Suck it up swedes! The people of the north is like the spruce, moving south, not the other way around.
