On chromosome 9 . All match on matrix. All are listed as 5th cousin-remote.

No known Scandinavian ancestors here. Trying to figure out where such ancestors might fit (a) Father's paternal ancestors were from Lancashire (b) Mother's maternal male ancestors were predominantly fishermen from Banffshire and Morayshire.
(c) Father's maternal ancestors from Midlands/South West England (d) Mother's paternal ancestors from Lanarkshire/Midlothian(Scotland) and Ireland.
