We shall extend Kingman's coalescent to the geographically structured population model with migration among colonies. It is described by a continuoustime Markov chain, which is proved to be a dual process of the diffusion process of steppingstone model. We shall derive a system of equations for the spatial distribution of a common ancestor of sampled genes from colonies and the mean time to getting to one common ancestor. These equations are solved in three particular models; a twopopulation model, the island model and the onedimensional steppingstone model with symmetric nearestneighbour migration.
