    A recent genetic link between Sami and the Volga-Ural region of Russia

    A recent genetic link between Sami and the Volga-Ural region of Russia

    Max Ingman and Ulf Gyllensten


    The genetic origin of the Sami is enigmatic and contributions from Continental Europe, Eastern Europe and Asia have been proposed. To address the evolutionary history of northern and southern Swedish Sami, we
    have studied their mtDNA haplogroup frequencies and complete mtDNA genome sequences.

    While the majority of mtDNA diversity in the northern Swedish, Norwegian and Finnish Sami is accounted for by haplogroups V and U5b1b1, the southern Swedish Sami have other haplogroups and a frequency
    distribution similar to that of the Continental European population. Stratification of the southern Sami on the basis of occupation indicates that this is the result of recent admixture with the Swedish population.
    The divergence time for the Sami haplogroup V sequences is 7600 YBP (years before present), and for U5b1b1, 5500 YBP amongst Sami and 6600 YBP amongst Sami and Finns. This suggests an arrival in the
    region soon after the retreat of the glacial ice, either by way of Continental Europe and/or the Volga-Ural region. Haplogroup Z is found at low frequency in the Sami and Northern Asian populations but is virtually absent in Europe. Several conserved substitutions group the Sami Z lineages strongly with those from Finland and the Volga-Ural region of Russia, but distinguish them from Northeast Asian representatives.

    This suggests that some Sami lineages shared a common ancestor with lineages from the Volga-Ural region as recently as 2700 years ago, indicative of a more recent contribution of people from the Volga-Ural region to the Sami population.

    Good work, Frans!

    I wonder if this ties in well chronologically with the observed traces of Lappish toponymy in Eastern Karelia, Arkhangelskaya Oblast' and further southeastwards into Russia?

    Does anyone know the timeline for the divergence of Sami speech from BaltoFinnic?

    It happened about 1500-1000 B.C. most likely.

    Well, according to what I've read, Sami speech or "Laplandish" branched from Fenno-Volgic, before the divergence of (Balto)Finnic.
    I've posted this before:
