The DNA-STR systems FGA, TH01, VWA, YNZ22 have been studied in two German population samples (Eschweiler, Stolberg and Hurtgenwald, Inden, Langerwehe, administrative area of Cologne, Northrhine-Westphalia). The cluster analysis, including data from Dusseldorf, Germany and from Poland, resulted in a cluster with Eschweiler, Stolberg and Dusseldorf, separating to a certain degree Hurtgenwald, Inden, Langerwehe and Poland more clearly. In contrary to the expectations (based on the history of the migration from Northeastern Europe to Northrhine-Westfalia) and the results of the study of 22 hemogenetic systems (Scheil & Huckenbeck 2000) there was a somewhat larger genetic distance between Eschweiler, Stolberg and Poland than between Hurtgenwald, Inden, Langerwehe and Poland. The combined data of the four STRs and the 22 hemogenetic systems resulted--as expected--in smaller genetic distances between Eschweiler, Stolberg and Poland as well as between Dusseldorf and Poland. These different genetic distances are interpreted as a result of the migration from North-East Europe to North Rhine-Westphalia in the last 130 years and the selective geographic distribution of the migrants in the industrial and urbanised areas.
