Motala DNA

The Motala samples come from the site of Kanaljorden in the town of Motala, Östergötland, Sweden. The site was excavated between 2009 and 2013. The authors state that these samples are between  7,013 and 6,701 years old. I converted the raw data supplied in this scientific paper to formats familiar with genetic genealogists. I also filtered with SNPs tested by DNA testing companies like FTDNA, 23andMe and Ancestry in order to upload to GEDMatch but found this ancient DNA has less SNPs that are common with them except Motala-12. Hence, I am not uploading the rest to GEDMatch. Motala-1, Motala-2, Motala-3, Motala-4, Motala-6, Motala-9 and Motala-12 are available for download.
