    I just want to say it is nice to see this forum back . I had my Haplagroup DNA done recently to find I am about 85% Scandinavian mostly I1a1 P109 and a couple others similar . I wonder how many others have this .

    It's probably roughly accurate but it doesn't tell the whole story. For instance Iceland is about half Celtic, but the Celtic signature is mostly on female side so it wouldn't show up on the Y haplogroup. Y-dna only passes down along the male line. The may be other parts of Europe that are similar to Iceland in that respect, probably England for one.
    Close observation may result in feelings of horror, wonder and awe at world you find yourself inhabiting.

    Haplogroups and ethno-cultural identities have never completely coincided. Until we find proof that they did, these maps are always inaccurate. Misleading even. Claiming that a certain area is Germanic or Celtic based on haplogroups is always dependent on another factor, namely what your historical point of reference is. Iceland for example would be Celto-Germanic, genetically speaking, because the genetics point to an influx of people from areas known to have been Germanic and Celtic at the time the influx occurred. But the Germanicness and Celticness of these areas is established by its culture and linguistics, not its haplogroups. Haplogroups therefor help to establish historical migration patterns, but to create a map based on haplogroups and claim that it shows the ethno-cultural make-up of the people is wrong.
