For discussion about the "N" Y-DNA found in the populations of Finland... and other nearby parts of Northeast Europe.

(Also including the "N" types occasionally found in places like Sweden... which are closely related)

yes .Northern Europe is the northern part of Europe or the region. Geographically Northern Europe are generally taken to Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and the British Isles (United Kingdom consist, Ireland, Channel Islands and Isle of Man)

Hello Hanh,

Yes, you are correct... many times "Northern Europe" can be said to also include places like Iceland (and other small northern Atlantic island nations).

We just focus on Northeast Europe here... because it seems to be the real "home" of Haplogroup "N" in Europe.

I don't believe that I have seen any studies that show high amounts of Y-DNA Haplogroup "N" ... in those other places you mentioned.

However, there are definitely small numbers of people with "N" Y-DNA who have been discovered in places like the British Isles, etc.  So you are correct, it can be found there.

As far as I understand, Y-DNA "N" appears to have been carried to these places that you've said... by some past Viking travels (migrations).  After all, Y-DNA "N" can be found quite easily in the native populations of Scandinavia (the Vikings' homeland).


Y-DNA Haplogroup "N" can be found in very tiny amounts throughout much of Europe... with Southeast Europe (the Balkans) being of particular interest.

Just noticed your posting and I thought I would share my data.  I can trace my paternal line back to the early 1700's in Bromsgrove, England.  I was originally listed as an N1C1 based on lower y-DNA.  After I expanded to Y64 I was notified that I was a Genetic Rurikid.  I have now tested to Y111 and BIG-Y.  I have three people that I have zero known SNP differences.  They are all from either Finland or Sweden.  I have an uncle with the same terminal SNP.  I am not related to any of the members of the WALL Project in FTDNA. Makes me think Viking.

Very interesting Robert, yes there are a few Y-DNA haplogroups that were almost certainly spread mostly by the Vikings.

Welcome as a new poster to our forums... and you are very welcome to share your thoughts here in the "N" haplogroup threads.

Nice to have you on board!


P.S. =  Its also interesting that you came up as a genetic "Rurikid".  This is a very interesting and historical "deep paternal" line for someone to have.
