"Are you surprised that Ukrainians are anthropologically a mixed race?"
--On the contrary no, I expected lots of different influences, I'd just like to find where they came from in the surnames I have. Like most every ethnic groups in the world there's no such thing as racial purity unless they've lived on an isolated island for millennia. Ukraine perhaps more diverse than many other countries because of it's geographic location.
Scandinavian is no surprise, but someone told me it's uncommon in Carpatho-Rusyns, of which I am probably descended from. There were lots of other Germanic peoples in different areas of Ukraine at one time or another as well as the Vikings.
I was expecting to find some Asian (Tatar probably)but if there's any in my dna it's maybe too small to be detected, although there were some very small amounts from Siberia and East Asia in my dna which could also be "noise" according to my research.
