    Its not a myth as far as we know. Also, your DNA changes each generation through intermarriage. Just because you have a lot of Roman admixture doesn’t mean Slavs didn’t come to the Balkans. All it means is the Slavic ancestry was weeded out through the collection of native ancestry by proxy.

    on average Macedonians and Bulgarians have more native admixture than other South Slavs and are about 50-60 percent native like and 40-50 percent Slavic like. They still have less than Albanians and Greeks. They’re more an intermediate between north and south.

    Im saying myth , because all of that is 20th century propaganda, also word Slav or Slavic is very wrong understood , Its not like slavic people like you understood (Russians,Ukrainians) its like "First who glorify God", SLAVA(Glory).U r albanian u haven't read the bible , but Apostoles first came to Macedonia to spread Christianity, you can read it (so FIRST WHO GLORIFY GOD).
    Also oldest R1a ancient sample is from Balkan 12,000 BC old not from Eastern Europe , you can read it also if you cant find i will post you,this terminology known like Slavs came in 4-7th century, first Apostoles who came in Macedonia to spread Christianity came in 4th century...So basically Slavic terminology came from Macedonia or simply said Slavs came from Macedonia...This slavic migrations spread from Balkan not from Eastern Europe...
    Here is one old book from 1871 year, i bet you know Serbo-Croatian

    If you need translation i will translate you.
    Im not convince you in anything , this is just discussion i want you to recieve true informations , not this nowdays internet propaganda...


    Also this is my Ancestral Timeline from antique ( BC ).

    If you lower the thresholds so much (like they do) you end up having that ancient Illyrian skeleton, on your timeline, as your second cousin, based on the cM lengths they give you .....

    14-16cM means you share approx. 0.20% DNA with that ancient Illyrian, making you 4th cousins and having a common 3rd grandparent. Do you see the problem here?

    Also, I would refrain from posting crazy conspiracy theories on this site because there is very low tolerance for this kind of stuff from the admins.

    That's the last thing I am saying on the matter, but if you lower the thresholds low enough, you probably match random primates in the circus. Good luck.

    I have verified 3-4th cousins with a total 60 cm and largest segment of 16cm. There is no way you would have that much in common with an ancient sample.

    I logged in to their site again, and lo and behold, with their latest update they are hiding the 'cMs shared' tag in their matches. They now just show a 'genetic distance' tag, whatever that means. So I match Mycenean Greeks at a 'genetic distance' of 22.5 whatever that means with cMs not visible, how convenient, now I have to pay them to tell me that I share 10-20cMs with those skeletons who are my 4th-5th cousins really, all the way back to 1800B.C.

    Listen, guys, if you want to burn your cash, I am all up for it, send me a pm and you can pay me a few hundred euros and I'll prepare for you a very nice certificate (with much better gfx than that website) stating that you are the direct descendant of Alexander the Great, or Khal Drogo, or whoever else you might chose. Seals of authenticity and all are included in the price. How does that sound?

    couldn't inbreeding explain those numbers a bit? thogh 4th cousin really is too close to explain it with inbreeding.

    I was born and grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. My family arrived following the Gold Rush. Family lore suggested Irish, Scottish, English, and Norwegian origins. I more or less thought of myself as Irish-American, until I met Irish-American from the U.S. East Coast. From then, I identified as a Northern Californian. This is, in fact, my most "ethnic" identity.

    In regard to identifying with an ancient ethnicity, I picked Celtic. My tribal sense of it has diminished over the years, and these days I am pretty much a fan of Celtic.

    DNA-wise, I am very Western Irish, some Scots and/or English, with a smidge of German and Eastern European. Plus, more Neanderthal than many.

    Since I found out that I'm R1a, it's brought a smile to my face, having been raised with Danelaw Englishness as our ancestry and being most fond of the East Germanic tribes, especially Theodoric's Goths. In the British Isles archipelago, only the Færoyar happen to bear that majority of my Y-DNA haplogroup, not Yorkshire, despite our Jórvík roots being well-known as at least Danish and Norwegian beyond the rest of England, followed by Lincolnshire and the other Five Boroughs. I struggled to feel like we were Danish or Norwegian, but I, my father and grandfather, all prefer the forests and swamps to flat coastlines and rocky mountaintops.
    In 2008, I was happy to discover our paper and archaeological records in England, Sweden and Finland leading back to Sweden, 2019 being when my DNA results proved that we are indeed descended in the male line from Sweden. Maternally, I'm Anglo-Saxon and K mtDNA haplogroup, same as my children from their mother.
    Living DNA and Ancestry DNA both profile me as majority British Isles, give or take random percentages of other seemingly trace DNA populations that don't stay the same, as so bewilderingly revealed by employing Gedmatch Admixture Utilities.
    At least Living DNA gets my 1/4 Northumbria and 3/4 Mercia-Wessex clusters, matching my grandparents.

    Interesting speculative topic. The ancient group I identify the most with, albeit not the sole exclusive one are Scandinavian and Germanic tribes, both from present day Sweden and lower Rhine regions.
