  • Nordic and Celtic (Iberian) DNA Project

    Nordic and Celtic (Iberian) DNA Project

    This project is the only FTDNA group to accept females as Nordic and Celtic Iberian in origin.

    We have categories for both men and women to join - that have one or both maternal or paternal European descendant.

    The Nordic & Celtic DNA Project started back in April 2006 and now the group has 200 members and growing.

    This is a URL to the site:

    Sorry, no such thing as .....

    Nordic or Celtic DNA. Nordic refers to a region and Celt (Kelt) was/is a culture. Nothing to do with DNA.

      Yeah, but there are people who live in the regions considered Nordic and others who are a part of Celtic culture and whose ancestors spoke Celtic languages. All of them have dna that can be studied.

      I'm not in the Nordic/Celtic DNA Project, but I don't see anything wrong with the idea of such a project.

      Since everyone has dna, I see no reason why we couldn't have a "Canasta Players DNA Project."

        Yes

        Yes, of course. It will be interesting to see what conclusions are drawn.

          True. For example, I have sometimes wondered if some geographical areas have a "genetical advantage" talentwise in some sports. It would be interesting for example to have "long distance runners' DNA project", "short distance runners' DNA project, "javelin throwers' DNA project", etc.

            Up in Finland isn't it possible to freeze your "Y" off?
