    Hi! I'm a real newbie to all of this and have no clue as to what I'm doing, lol. I was searching for posts related to my haplogroup U5b1c2b and found this thread. So, this means I'm related to VK30? Also, can someone help me to find good educational information about how to understand and conduct beginning level genetic research? This is all extraordinarily fascinating to me, but I'm completely lost in the woods here, LOL! Thank you!!

    One of the J2a samples is L-70 (my haplogroup) I'm a direct male descendant of Normans. I wonder if they have more information on this guy.

    Yes I am also J2a-L70, so is my maternal GrandPa. The interesting thing is that if I am not mistaken one of the J2 Vikings is also MT H2a2a1, which is my female line. But I do not know if it is the L70 or M67 Viking.

    Can somebody publish here the autosomal results of the male line J2(I think 3 of them) and female line H2a2a1( I think there are 4 of them) ? Thanks in advance!

    If some of the Vikings had Polish-like admixture, that does not means that they were ethnic Poles, they were clearly having mother tongue Old Norse, that is well known.
    Besides, this Polish like admixture might have been shared between the ancestors of Poles and ancestors of some of the Vikings.

    Anyway, I see a lot of J maternal lines, which does not look very European like.
    There are 47 persons that have J maternal lines from a total of 440 persons.
    10% J maternal lines is not really looking very European.
    28 persons got T maternal lines.
    That is more than 5%.
    Just for the statistics, 200 persons with H or H+V or V maternal lines.
    This is looking quite European.

    They're as European as they can be. Check out reliable sources please (Ian Logan's Genbank accession # ref.list ; Yfull tree ; FTDNA mt Public tree etc.)

    Т and J female lines are really European, please read some more :)

    There's definitely some R1a in far Southern Europe, but I don't know if it's all been fully classified. I would think some is Z93, but maybe there's a few "Viking" R1a as well as some I1 and U-106.

    26 samples had J1c mtdna. This is a map of J1c frequency. Pretty non-European, right?J1c.gif

    I suppose Vikings could be compared to some sea-nomads in a way; pshychologically or culturally close to land nomads when they were raiders and plunderers. Basically Scandinavians, they can have taken with them some skillful outsiders pushed by the same wants of money and glory, wherever they had found these last ones. I think a part of the R-L21 of Western Norwegian is not due to slaves but rather to 'Gael-Gals', these mixes of Norwegians and Irishmen living in Viking communities in the Great Isles.
    It seems there have been some Slavs so why not Slavs, Finns and others with the Eastern Vikings of Swedish origin? Even if scandinavian language kept on the 'koine'?

    This paper was definitely a good haul for Haplogroup I1, lots of subclades (Z59, Z140, Z73, etc) no matter how lacking in depth they may have been. Certainly one of the more interesting pieces (at least to me, Orkney & Shetland are fascinating to me) was the Pictish population of Orkney adopting Scandinavian culture and going "Viking".
