About us

The objective of the I1-L1302 project is to investigate the genealogical connections between the L1302 clusters in Sweden, Norway, Russia, Ukraine and Finland. Of special interest is also to investigate if the connection between Scandinavia and Russia/Ukraine could be found among the viking/varangian people in medieval Kievan Rus.

The L1302 Family Tree
More than 100 members of the project have done the BigY test. This has made it possible to recreate a fairly detalied Family Tree for these members. The L1302 Family Tree begins with a common ancestor in the 3rd Century and the huge tree is one of the most detailed of all haplogroup trees.

Tree analysed and compiled by the Project Admin Team.

The tree is based on the mutations (SNPs) found in the BigY tests and by the analysis performed by YFull.com. As new results become available we will update this tree and we hope that more project members will continue to order the BigY so the tree can be expanded.

A Varangian/Viking connection?
The L1302 Tree shows that the men carrying L1302 to Ukraine/Russia in the Viking Ages most probably came from what is today Sweden. This likely has something to do with the Viking/Varangian settlements in the Kievan Rus area. Further testing will shed more light on this.
