    That would be interesting. I have 10.3% Lincolnshire yet no documented evidence from there!

    Maybe Denmark needs to be deep tested!

    Of all nationalities I would say Dutch is the most likely to score some British. English people on the east coast are very similar to Dutch genetically.

    I think so too; by lack of Dutch samples they chose East England. In total they gave 68,8% British, 19% Scandinavian, but only 1,5% Germanic, so I really wonder what their Germanic category is. I hope their German and Benelux projects will be done soon (some years probably).

    I think it's a question of the reference system they chose, considering its origin in England !
    I think the reference system origin needs to move much further south-east, probably towards the Balkans.

    There was a contingent of German Hungarians who settled in Transylvania, but I would agree, most modern Romanians are of Slavic ancestry.
