    ^^I knew my great-grandmother too. She watched me while my parents went to work, prior to me starting school. I also spent my whole child and teenage years with her in my life, which I was very fortunate for. She was 100% Barese and her grandparents were too.

    Well in my view, that is a potential flaw in the sample collection methods used if birth and/or baptismal certificates are not asked for.

    Definitely it is a potential flaw. Which is why academic samples are useful because they give us the big picture but they cannot always be taken for completely reliable when it comes to individual cases, especially the outlying ones, for the lack of control and strictness when they were collected. Because they may not always be completely accurate.

    On the other hand, there is then to add the fact that there is individual variation, just see that often two brothers or sisters are not 100% identical genetically, so let alone two unrelated people who come from the same area, even when they really have all the grandparents from that area, it is not a given that they are entirely similar genetically.

    Northern Albanians on average plot more north and it's an undisputed fact.
