Haplogroup N-231 is has been found prominent among the Northern Eurasia populations of China and Cambodia as well as among people living in Southeast Asia, Pacific Islands, Southwest Asia and the Balkans suggestively indicating that these haplogroup originated in either East Asia or Southeast Asia in modern day regions of Northern China, north-eastern Europe and Mongolia. It must not be forgotten that this Haplogroup N-M231 is also found in Siberia and Scandinavia, more specifically among the Saami tribe of Finland. However, while it is predominantly present among the Finnic speakers living around the Baltic Sea in North eastern Europe and Estonians, Veps, Izhorians, Votes and Livonians, all of them being residents of modern day Finland, Estonia, a few in Sweden, Norway, Russia and Lativa, the group is ambiguously absent in Americas and the few traces found in this regions is attributed to recent migratory waves that has nothing to do with the original inhabitants of the Americas. Other people carrying this haplogroup are the modern day Lithuanians and Latvians. It has been traced among the populations in western Siberia.
