    The following just for fun exercise really has nothing to do with your actual ancestry, but rather what pops you are closest to genetically.


    1. I took the inverse of the distances above bolded pops from vahaduo G25 (Didn't use Orkneys, Shetlands, Iceland, Afrikaner as they are population sinks rather than sources), to use as weighting in step 3 below, e.g Scottish 1/0.01574125 = 63.5

    2. Get decimal degrees for each region/country. I used this site If you do this, don't forget the negative sign(s) when applicable

    3. Went to this site used and started plugging in the lat long and weight for each country/region/pop

    4. Took a screen shot on full screen map and pasted results in ms paint and cropped, edited (e.g. lighter ocean color) them into one image.

    I was curious how the addition of more pops (each one with less weight than the ones before) effected the results. For the most part, I stayed in Yorkshire or just off the coast of Yorkshire in the North Sea. This is a common location for me on other similar exercises. I often come out in or to the east of county Durham or Yorkshire, between the Tyne and Humber Rivers i.e. old Northumbria., and occasionally in/off the coast of Lincolnshire and East Anglia toward the Netherlands.

    When the new Viking samples came out I plotted roughly in the middle of that group.

    Related to the above, here is a map of where the highest concentrations of Scandinavian surnames in Britain were found in 1881 census, which corresponds to where Danelaw was concentrated in Britain.

    The reason I said this is not reflective of one's actual ancestry but rather genetic, is illustrated by the fact that I don't genetically plot between my parents. A similar exercise involving my parents would put both of them to the West of me i.e more British/Irish than me. Just the luck of the draw on which dna segments I got from them. Mine happened to be disproportionately from both of my parents' German ancestry which pulls me east of them...making me more German than either of them. Mother is more Scandinavian/Northern shifted and father is more Irish/Western shifted.
