What do you think about her results? Supposedly her village (right on the borders with Arcadia) is an old mix of Arcadian migrants from the vicinity of modern day municipality of Gortynia and local people from Elis.

I can provide the coordinates for any additional calculator requested
 
it points out as per another thread about a new article (reference forthcoming) how close Peloponnesian people are to to Italians but in her case the Central Italians. Usually the Peloponnesian's are close to Southern Italians.

She is north of Southern Italians and southeast of Central Italians.

Only Italians and Greeks in the PCA. She is slightly southeast of the Central Italians and has an anomalous position compared to the Greek averages.

Knowing full well that the results of a single individual could be very different from the average, I was wondering, what kind of mix could have resulted in these type of results ? Would a combination of east Arcadian and Arvanite/Vlach like populations work ?
Her village is right next to the arcadian lands of the former municipality of Iraia (now part of Gortynia) , an area recorded as mostly arvanite inhabited during the medieval period. If the "older", high medieval period, central peloponnesians were more Tsakonian/East arcadian shifted then I can only think of this type of mix (plus later migrants from other parts of Greece of course) . It could be just a case of poor overlap between Myheritage raw data and Eurogenes calculators though and nothing more or less...

Can you do the same with her dodecad data? Thanks!

Indeed, here's the title, for some reason my phone won't copy web links.

"Assessing temporal and geographic contacts across the Adriatic Sea through the analysis of genome-wide data from Southern Italy"
 
Interesting also to see an overlap of Greek Thessaly and Greek Thrace in the second PCA.
 
Already done, post #5

Yeah, I saw it after posting my message, thanks!
Similar case for Dodecad too then, interesting!
Any other calculator worth playing with?

(My friend will buy her G25 coordinates soon)

I get a pretty close distance:

Jovialis you're one of us :LOL:.
 
Glad to have found this thread. Need a break from the political ones. My distances, not quite as close as Jovialis, but reasonable. I think Jovialis's modeling using Minoan to capture Southern Italians was dead on. This recent pre-print seems to be providing solid evidence on what Jovialis Modeling showed. Well done!

You should consider the possibility of influence of early Slavic (West Slavic) groups and people from N. Italy.
My maternal grandmother from Messenia has an essentially adapted/corrupted Venetian name.

Actually I'm Peloponnesian and cluster with Central Italians; Marche typically first. Deep Maniots or Tsaknonians cluster with Abruzzo or other Souther Italian Groups but from what I've seen on G25 Peloponnesians, Thessalians, Rumeliotes, Epirotes cluster with Central Italians.
 
Just did a K13 3D PCA run.
She is still on the "Italian" cline but
On the Z-axis she is on the same level/height with South Italians and some Balkan subpopulations (some Greek and Albanian regions) . The Central Italian averages form a cluster far "lower" from all of them with the only Balkan average close on the Z-axis to them being the very atypical Albanian Mirdite average (consisting of a single individual) who is between the Balkan and the Italian cline on the 2D version.

The directions they are pulled in depends on the components, and can radically change by introducing or taking away samples projected.
 
Based on my experience Dodecad is better at decerning different types of farmer DNA. That's why it is a good calculator for Southern Europeans. But it seems to not work so well for determining WHG from Steppe. Euroogenes calcs seem to be the opposite.
