  • Karelian hits?

    Finland and Scandinavia seem really well covered by now but how about Karelia? Are there no results or groups available from that region yet, or are the results published somewhere else? I am especially interested in White Karelia (Viena) region. Thanks!

    Interesting question. Since nobody has replied here, I have a couple other places you could try.

    I am guessing that you are a member of the Finland DNA Project. (http://fidna.info/) They have a forum there. (Maybe you have already asked there as well?)

    http://dna-forums.com has several active Finnish participants that might know something about this.

      ^ A small correction to the above.

      There is no longer a forum at Finland DNA Project. Most people end up going here or to DNA-Forums.

        I joined the group called Travelers that deals with anybody in haplogroup "U". I'm not logged in, but you can maybe contact them here:

          RE Russian Finns

          The Northern Russians are a blend of Finns and Slavs, the way I see it, although the Karelians are the closest to the Suomi Finns. I suspect that Russian researchers have tackled this problem and would have a wealth of DNA and ethnological information on the subject.
