    This. It's also interesting that on 23andMe these days I notice many Balkanites getting Peloponnesian as part of their Ancestry.

    I honestly don't see them being in any great hurry to release Classical Greek samples (at least legit ones).

    Yes. And I've also always wondered if the term "Slav" is just a corruption/adaptation of the Greek word for "Scythian."

    I could be out of the loop here, but I don't recall a lot of "subhuman" treatment of Greeks and Balkanites by the Nazis (at least greater than other invaded countries). Anybody have sources on this?...

    Many people on these types of forums keep lauding the Empuries samples as some sort of Gold Standard for "Greekness." I believe these colonists came from Phocaea--which was in Asia Minor for crying...

    He's just grasping at straws since the "Slavic Theory house of cards" is crumbling.

    It's not just Albanians. I notice on 23andMe other Balkan nationalities (even Romanians) scoring Peloponnese as well. My first reaction is that the Peloponnesian samples are acting as a proxy for...

    Many Cretans say it's a Turkish diminutive. Are there any Turks out there that can help here? Does Turkish actually use such diminutive suffixes?

    This jibes with the women in my life. I notice women seem to remember the facts and details, whereas men retain the overall patterns.

    Not so sure if the derived EDAR variant is a reliable indicator of East Asian ancestry. It's been found, last time I checked, in Swedish hunter-gatherers, Yamnaya, and even the Yoruba. And these...

    You're Gheg right? Aren't they originally from higher up in the NW Balkans (closer to northern Italy) and have remained isolated in the mountains for a long time?

    I score more Italian that some Italians I've seen (21% if I remember right) and I'm Peloponnesian with some Arvanite ancestry. Tuscan is usually at or near the top on Oracle-type stuff, like a lot...

    And I guarantee you that the .2-14% "Slavic" is actually closer to the .2 in most regions, the rest being IE/"Steppe"-type ancestry that modern Slavs also possess.

    He seems to be butt-hurt that Eastern Europeans have some Mongoloid ancestry. His attitude and calculators stem from this I bet.
