Genetics of the Greek Peleponessus

Interesting article indeed. I do not understand the hate some people have though. It is well known that the peoples around the Mediterranean sea have many commonalities. This is expected, even the ancient Greek mythology talks about this.
I totally agree. I'm baffled why people are not concentrated on commonalities and cooperation but mostly on differences and hate.
Welcome to Eupedia Diomedes.
 
Greeks, post your Eurogenes K36 scores or send me your GEDmatch kit numbers.

Then I will run this K36-based Oracle - with regional Greek populations - for you:

http://www.theapricity.com/forum/sh...e-my-results&p=4337714&viewfull=1#post4337714

Reference populations in this Oracle include (among other things):

GR_Peloponese
GR_Central
GR_Epirus
GR_Macedonia
GR_Ikaria
GR_Chios
GR_Kythera
GR_Andros
GR_Istanbul
GR_Pontic
GR_Crete

Sicily_Messina
Sicily_Catania
Sicily_Trapani
Sicily_Ragusa
Sicily_Agrigento
Sicily_Palermo
Sicily_Caltanisetta
Sicily_Calabria

North_Italy
IT_Veneto

We are still expanding it, adding new reference samples. :) You can help us in expanding this Oracle by sending me GEDmatch kits or K36 scores of people + info about their geographical & ethnic origin.

People with mixed origin (ancestors from several different regions) will also be useful.
 
I can't see what the problems are with the paper. It deals with Peloponessian Greeks specifically not other Greeks and their supposed Slavic ancestry. Yes they have Slavic ancestry but it is minor and does not connect them to Russian, Belorussians or Poles except by using Sicilians are a doormat, similarly these Greeks are not connected to Levantines except when using Cypriots as an entrance. What that means is that those Greeks are Southern Europeans with some Slavic ancestry and some Near Eastern ancestry but not enough to sift them closer to West and East Slavic groups or Near Easterners.

Tomenable you can run mine. I am not Greek but I was born in Malta of that ethnic group, the Sicilians should do. A829596, enjoy.

======================

So your ancestors are ethnic Greeks who came to Malta? Do you know what regional group of Greeks they are?
 
Greeks, post your Eurogenes K36 scores or send me your GEDmatch kit numbers.

Then I will run this K36-based Oracle - with regional Greek populations - for you:

http://www.theapricity.com/forum/sh...e-my-results&p=4337714&viewfull=1#post4337714

Reference populations in this Oracle include (among other things):

GR_Peloponese
GR_Central
GR_Epirus
GR_Macedonia
GR_Ikaria
GR_Chios
GR_Kythera
GR_Andros
GR_Istanbul
GR_Pontic
GR_Crete
GR_Eubea
GR_Cyclades
GR_Kalymnos

Sicily_Messina
Sicily_Catania
Sicily_Trapani
Sicily_Ragusa
Sicily_Agrigento
Sicily_Palermo
Sicily_Caltanisetta
Sicily_Calabria

North_Italy
IT_Veneto

We are still expanding it, adding new reference samples. :) You can help us in expanding this Oracle by sending me GEDmatch kits or K36 scores of people + info about their geographical & ethnic origin.

People with mixed origin (ancestors from several different regions) will also be useful.
I see a Sicily_Calabria who means nothing, Calabria is another region. Anyway are those samples really reliable?are they used from a peer-rewieved study or just unknown GEDmatch-ones?
 
Yeah, it is actually IT_Calabria, not Sicily_Calabria.

I don't think that peer-reviewed studies go into such detail when it comes to micro-regional breakdown.

or just unknown GEDmatch-ones?

GEDmatch ones, but well-known ones (people who report their ancestry from these parts of the island).
 
Italian peer-rewieved studies divided Italy into regions and regions into provinces. So yes, they are a lot detailed and more than GEDmatch.

Micro-regional breakdown based on what? On Sikeliot's samples? Are you kidding us? C'mon, on GEDmatch there are no informations about the province of origin. If you don't speak Italian, and none of you does, it's very hard to find the real origin of a GEDmatch kit.

You're using GEDmatch kits found with the one-to-many, your samples obviously lack accuracy. Not by coincidence you're doing that on the Apricity, one of the least reliable forum.

If someone wants to go into such detail, into a micro-regional breakdown, he should be much more accurate than usual, but you are doing exactly the opposite.
 
The only thing to get accurate information on GEDmatch is to send them an email and ask where are from all their known ancestors.

If they uploaded their samples somewhere in the internet then we can download them, convert to format accepted by GEDmatch, upload, see what they score in Eurogenes K36 and add them to reference populations. But some genomes are not public. I wanted to add these 15 Western Poles from Human Origins, but these samples are not public:

BTW:

This is Davidski's result (seems consistent with his mixed Baltic Polish + Western Polish origin):

The only thing to get accurate information on GEDmatch is to send them an email and ask where are from all their known ancestors.

Not to mention, that actually many Sicilians have grandparents from different parts of the island. Does really exist someone who is fully from Palermo, Catania, Trapani? °_O

Indeed, for example myself i've great-grandparents from Palermo, Catania, Ragusa, Messina. Modern Palermitans for example descendent from people all over Sicily and Mainland Italy.
 
If they uploaded their samples somewhere in the internet then we can download them and convert to format accepted by GEDmatch, upload on GEDmatch, see what they score in Eurogenes K36 and add them to reference populations. But some genomes are not public. For example I wanted to add these 15 Western Poles from Humna Origins, but these samples are not public:

Tomenable, we are not dumb. The samples for Greece and Sicily are from Sikeliot, aka Portuguese Princess, the American guy who has spent the last 5 years harassing Italians on forums. What do I have to deduce?

"mlukas :Thanks to Sikeliot samples for Greece and Sicily those regions are modeled quite good."

A micro-regional breakdown, lol. They are so ridiculous.
 
I do not want to debate at all costs, but to have a Sicilian regional breakdown you need a large number of Sicilian sample with people who have 4/4 grandparents all born in the same province and city. And these Sicilian samples do not exist on Gedmatch because the majoirity of Sicilians on Gedmatch have grandparents from different Sicilian provinces. they represent Sicily as whole but not a specific area.
 
Why are you guys discussing Italian genetics and specifically micro-regional differences in Sicily on a thread about the genetics of the Peloponnesus? You're not even trying to connect that with similarities to the Peloponnesus. It just seems like the same old, same old from anthrofora. Cut it out.

@Tomenable,
Where have you been? Did you miss all the Boattini papers, or the papers that provided the samples from places like the Piemonte/Emilia border? A lot of the Italian papers specifically are trying to capture micro-regional differences, and they are ensuring the suitability of their samples by checking that all four grandparents are from the same area. Sometimes they even go further and cull for non-local surnames.

How can you possibly compare the reliability of results like those to data at gedmatch based on self-reporting, and especially in a country like Italy with so much recent internal migration? The same goes for Greece. That was a rhetorical question: you can't.

In my own area someone could say, perfectly correctly, that they're from northwestern Toscana, but they could have a mother from Calabria. Some Greek posters have already said they have grandparents from various parts of Greece and even Anatolia. It's ridiculous to imagine, imo, that you could use gedmatch samples for this purpose.

Now, let's get back on topic.

Well dividing Sicily into so many subregions is a bit of a stretch.

We could just make one "Sicily" reference population instead. :)

But Sikeliot wanted to see how different parts of Sicily plot.

I often have detailed info about ancestry of these people. For example my "PL_West_Beskid" reference is one person so far (most reference populations are between 10 and 100 people, only a few are single persons).

One person, but 31 out of his 32 g-g-great-grandparents are from the same region.

No, now that he's found that half of his 100,000 posts are worthless because of the study on the genetics of the Peloponnesus and a comparison of those genomes with ones from Sicily, he wants to try to save the other half of his posts, the ones on regionality within Sicily.

If someone wants to compare the different areas of Sicily there are academic samples from various areas. Contact the authors and ask if the genomes are publicly available or can be made publicly available, or, at the least, contact gedmatch testees by e-mail if that's possible, and try to ascertain if all four grandparents are from one area. It's not as good as checking records, but it's better than what's being proposed here. Oh, and I wouldn't trust the results unless I saw the documentation for those e-mails, especially since one of the people involved is of proven mendacity. I'm sure you know or are learning about impeached witnesses and the effect on credibility.

Of course, you can do as you wish. Just don't expect people to give it very high reliability.
 
The creator of the MDLP calculator seems to have the academic regional Sicilian samples. Perhaps he could provide them, or at least indicate where he go them so the source could be contacted.

I'd still advise, however, against drawing any dogmatic conclusions. In places around Messina, for example, the dna would come from all over Sicily because large parts of it were destroyed by earthquake and people from all over Sicily re-populated it. You have to know something of the history of different areas to draw intelligent conclusions.
