About the Salme II ship grave in Saare County Estonia:

There are Y-DNA matches, in direct paternal line, between
all people that are downstream from I-Z73 and all subclades, with the Vikings VK492, VK555, VK491, VK497,VK483, and VK552, who were buried in this ship grave.

A close relative of VK555, is VK379 from a shipgrave at Nabbelund, Öland,Sweden, see below, where both have the same mtDNA U3b1b1c, suggesting close kinship.

VK379 came from Västmanland, Mälardalen, Sweden according to YFull's data, see I-FGC22046, which confirms the archaeological investigations that suggest that the Salme Vikings came from Mälardalen.
