Hello, I'm Russian with ancestry from NW part of the country and some Baltic German admix.

I've tried 23andme 1gp 15cm countries of ancestry, and that's what i got:

There are 6 different people, i share with on this chromosome, can anybody expalain me why all of them are so concentrated around this area?

There are some segments of our chromosomes that we share with thousands of other people and others who are rarer.
Probably that these segments are from very distant ancestors (thousands of years)


On one segment of my chromosome 4, I match with 83 people from across Europe on 23 and me.
At that time, it had surprised me too!

Thanks! So you basicly say that it may just be some segment that survived better compared to others in Eastern Baltic region?

Yes!

You can download the csv file of yours coutries of ancestry and see precisely those who share this segment.
15 cM, it's a big "piece".
Some others may have this common segment but smaller at the same location on this chromosome.
