It's obvious that you didn't understand anything of what I said...this 89 samples are from Greek men who are currently living in Greece but have a paternal-origin from Anatolia region (Fokaia and Smyrne) like 25% of modern Greeks. Their ancestors who lived under Ottoman Empire had a native Greek language, were Christian Orthodox and allways thought of themselves as Greeks (which is now proven by genetics).
