Firstly I would like to say that as far as ethnic origins go, it's simple: we're equal and at the same time different. I made a genetic investigation into my origins to have some fun around my differences. I am British of Nordic appearance, but I know I have plenty of ancestors who come from further afield.

My weirdest discovery is that the two most dramatic positive anomalies in interest in my Artwork according to Google analytics in Belarus and the Northern Caucasus coincide with my mitochondrial DNA 22nd match and largest number of individual matches and 4th closest individual matches (closer than any UK match) respectively. Maybe I need to investigate artwork from these areas. It certainly may show a genetic influence as strong as the cultural. I have found no-one in the UK who produces work like mine.

The other 'discovery is that I am both Roma and Jewish on my mothers side. I always instinctively knew a link between Roma and Sephardi, although my mother's side is mainly Ashkenazim.

Strong mitochondrial matches run from India through Iran and Kurdistan and split into North Africa (Libya) and end in Portugal (8th and 11th match). Another much stronger souche crosses Europe in ends in numerous Western European countries. My 3rd closest match is France and my 1st and 2nd closest matches are in Denmark with the 10th closest match in the Faroes. My only UK match is 5th

My father's side is relatively boring. It is massively centred on Hamburg and North Friesia, and a weak showing in London. Along with the mytochondrial link to Denmark this probably explains my northern appearance despite  a massively southern ancestry. There are also outposts in Krakow, Slovenia (Istria) and the Austrian Tyrol.
