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)

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.
