Genetic research has revealed that Europeans shared a common ancestor only 1,000 years ago. Geneticist Graham Coop of the University of California, Davis, studied shared segments of DNA from some 2,000 subjects from Turkey to the U.K. The research could be used to discover the lineage of other parts of the world. "In fact, it's likely that everyone in the world is related over just the past few thousand years," said Coop.
