Jag har låtit analysera mitt DNA, både på pappas (y-DNA) och mammas (mtDNA) sida.

Pappas y-DNA tillhör “haplogruppen” I-M253 och mammas gruppen J.

Om I-M253, dvs. min pappas DNA, kan man bland annat inhämta följande information:

“I-M253 is found at its highest density in Northern Europe and other
countries that experienced extensive migration from Northern Europe,
either in the Migration Period, the Viking period or modern times. It is found in all places invaded by the ancient Germanic Peoples and the Vikings. In the modern era, significant I-M253 populations have
also taken root in immigrant nations and former European colonies such
as United States, Australia and Canada”.

Om J, dvs. min mammas DNA, säger en annan källa följande:

“Haplogroup J*—the root lineage of haplogroup J—is found distributed
throughout Europe, but at a relatively low frequency. Haplogroup J is
generally considered one of the prominent lineages that was part of the
Neolithic spread of agriculture into Europe from the Near East beginning
approximately 10,000 years ago.”

Värmlänning, Svensk, Europé sedan lång tid alltså!
