Swedish Haplogroup Database
The Swedish Haplogroup Database (SHD) is a project started in 2011 by genealogists Anders Berg and Jonas Magnusson when they had taken a DNA test and learned about their paternal and maternal haplogroups. Anders came up with the original idea and is responsible for programming of the site, and Jonas contributes with explaining texts and illustrations.
The Swedish Haplogroup Database (SHD) is a free and independent database with the purpose to collect the haplogroups of historical Swedish persons and thus create a tool to include this knowledge into traditional genealogy. The aim is also to present statstics of haplogroup distribution and contribute to the knowledge about pre-historic migration in Scandinavia. Genetic science shows us that all humans originate in Africa and we differ very little from each other.
These flyers can be distributed to visitors at events related to DNA genealogy. Feel free to use them as you please. Only in Swedish as of date!
