Europeans All Related by Genetic Footprint Dating Back Only 1,000 Years Ago
After centuries of bloody wars and political disputes, new genetic research reveals that Europeans all share a common ancestor that dates back just a mere 1,000 years ago. Even Europeans geographically separated by thousands of miles, such as a Portuguese and a Turk are still related, according to a new study of genome data published today in the journal PLOS Biology.

"What's remarkable about this is how closely everyone is related to each other. On a genealogical level, everyone in Europe traces back to nearly the same set of ancestors only a thousand years ago," University of California researcher Graham Coop said.
