I'm a big fan of the 23andMe service (23andMe.com) and they just release a new feature that analyzes your DNA and tells you what kind of population your DNA is most common with. This is what it reads:

The results reflect where your ancestors lived 500 years ago, before ocean-crossing ships and airplanes came on the scene.

Here is how my chromosomes look like from the world. I find all this data and discovery about your roots and the science of YOU something truly magical:
