Sardinian

Sardinian - Latest Zuluaga Regional Ancestry Distribution :: Zuluaga.infoA sub-region of modern-day Europe.

Sardinia is a large, mountainous island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, just to the west of Italy.

Unlike Sicily, it is not very close to any landmass. Its next nearest neighbor is the smaller island of Corsica to its north. Sardinia is not entirely isolated, however, as maritime traffic has long characterized the Mediterranean Sea.

In recent history, Sardinia was part of the kingdom which later became modern Italy.

Basque

Basque - Latest Zuluaga Regional Ancestry Distribution :: Zuluaga.infoA sub-region of modern-day Europe.

The Basques are a small, unique population on the western coast of Europe.

The Basque region is nestled in between France and Spain.

Long ago, this region was larger than it is today and extended further into Spain, but it’s distinct genetic heritage lives on today in northern Spain and southwestern France.

North Mediterranean

North Mediterranean - Latest Zuluaga Regional Ancestry Distribution :: Zuluaga.infoA sub-region of modern-day Europe.

A network of trade and migration has bound together the peoples of the region for much of recorded history. Unlike Greece after the fall of the Roman Empire, Italy and other parts of the central Mediterranean have been relatively shielded from later mass migrations.

The Alps served as a barrier to the movements of people that reshaped the Balkans during this period. Instead, small groups of mobile warriors established themselves atop older societies as ruling castes.

Finnish

Finnish - Latest Zuluaga Regional Ancestry Distribution :: Zuluaga.infoA sub-region of modern-day Europe.

The region is nestled between the Baltic Sea and the tundra of the Siberian arctic.

Finnish region is a forested landscape littered with thousands of lakes.

It is a landscape created after the retreat of the great ice sheets at the end of the last Ice Age, around 15,000 years ago.

Austronesian

Austronesian - Latest Zuluaga Regional Ancestry Distribution :: Zuluaga.infoA sub-region of Asia.

The genetic legacy of the Austronesian people can be found from the island of Madagascar off the east coast of Africa all the way across the Pacific to Easter Island, off the west coast of South America.

An ancient maritime tradition spread this group of people far and wide, most notably across the vast expanse of Pacific islands that is Polynesia.

Southeast Asian

Southeast Asian - Latest Zuluaga Regional Ancestry Distribution :: Zuluaga.infoA sub-region of Asia.

Southeast Asian ancestry stretches from the hills of Southern China.

The region extends to the Red River Valley of Northern Vietnam.

Extending from the broad Chao Phraya Plain of Thailand to the estuary of the Irrawaddy River in Myanmar.

Northeast Asian

Northeast Asian - Latest Zuluaga Regional Ancestry Distribution :: Zuluaga.infoA sub-region of Asia.

Nearly a quarter of the world’s human population lives in Northeast Asia. The roots of Northeast Asian ancestry started from humble beginnings in the region between the Yellow River, south of Beijing in modern-day China, and the Korean peninsula.

We see evidence of these Northeast Asian ancestry as far south as Vietnam and across the East China Sea in Japan.

South Asian

South Asian - Latest Zuluaga Regional Ancestry Distribution :: Zuluaga.infoA sub-region of Asia.

The Indian subcontinent is home to over a billion people. Stretching from the southern tip of the peninsula and extending as far north as the mighty Himalayan mountains and and the far reaches of Afghanistan and Tajikistan, as well as eastward to Southeast Asia, the heritage of the peoples of South Asia is not limited to the bounds of the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal. Indian Ocean trade has long bound Africa and Arabia to India, and the eastern Indian shore and Sri Lanka have always been at the fulcrum of Asian trade routes.

Central Asian

Central Asian - Latest Zuluaga Regional Ancestry Distribution :: Zuluaga.infoA sub-region of Asia.

At the crossroads of two continents, the heritage of Central Asian peoples extends into the northwestern China, west into Russia, southwest toward Iran, and southward toward India. The rich steppe landscape has nurtured the heritage of Central Asian peoples and theirs herds of horses, sheep and cattle for several thousand years.

Central Asians are people on the move, and their genetic impact has migrated from place to place along with their herds.

Oceania

Oceania - Latest Zuluaga Regional Ancestry Distribution :: Zuluaga.info

Oceanians have pushed the frontiers of human habitation at the water’s edge since the first human migration out of Africa. The Oceanian heritage is dominant in the islands of eastern Indonesia, New Guinea, and into the Melanesian archipelago. Further south, the Australian Aboriginals still reside on the continent that they have called home for millennia, and the peoples of Polynesia carry a deep connection to the Oceanians in their DNA: taking that with them as far as Easter Island, Hawaii, and New Zealand. Northwest into Asia, small islands and relics of Oceanian heritage persist in the Andaman islands and among the Negritos of the Philippines and Malaysia. Although much of the Oceanian heritage has been replaced by newcomers, it still exists at low levels across much of South and Southeast Asia; a testament to its deep roots in the region.
