@DarkMage7280 Well you are related to the swedes too, genetic research shows that most finns carry extensive indoeuropean genemarkers, true that could be from the russians too. My guess is that the proto finns were quite like the sami, perhaps as similiar as swedes and germans, perhaps as similair as germanic and slavs (we'll never know for certain) but prolonged contact with the germanic and slavic neighbours changed the finnish.

It's also worth noting that there are evidence to suggest germanic settlements on the western shores of finland before the finnish and sami arrived at the coastlands.
