    Most of the Griko came in a more recent medieval migration.

    imho The oracle gets confused ’cause of the Italians, the Griko and Albanians all living in the same small area.

    So they're off by 50km. Big deal!

    I forgot if there was a genetic study of the Griko and the Calabrian Greko people that might shed some light on their genetic ancestry.

    Eastern Europe & Russia 25%
    Turkey and the Caucasus 1%
    Italy 2%
    Baltics 1%
    Malta 1%

    The new estimate is almost the exact opposite of the Living DNA estimate which has Eastern Europe 70% and Aegean ancestry at 27%.
    If you got a regional community, is it correct?

    It was close to Ancestry and MyHeritage in the old days before the new look if you did the regional option.

    Ancestry released a new ethnicity update this week. For typical white Americans I notice a trend of reporting higher Irish/Scottish than before. Example, raising me from 10% to 23%.

    I also notice a trend of overreporting small amounts of Scandinavian in typical US southerners. Some are getting higher than my father who actually has a Norwegian immigrant. There was very little direct Scandinavian immigration into the colonial south and I'm guessing their calculator is picking up Scandinavian sub-pop genes that existed in the UK in the 1600s.

    Screen Shot 2019-11-16 at 3.11.35 PM.pngActually they dialed down my Irish and Scottish-which is virtually all Irish, mmm potatoes-to a more realistic amount, but they got rid of any trace of my Sicilian! Infamia! (I would add a curse in Italian, but Angela probably knows what it means)

    Not if it was Sicilian dialect. I have to get it translated.:) I got all those lovely Neapolitan ballads translated too. I only understood 50-60%. It was more than worth the effort.
