well i thought that people from aetoloakarnania are northern shifted too but you arent
Well maybe i inherited more from my maternal grandmother than my paternal grandfather since i have not any west asian.That can happen its not 50-50 i think
Haven't seen hundrends of Samples obviously,but the ones that i've seen(mine,members of the extended familyand few friends coming from the area) we're somewhere in the middle between the Islanders and the subgroups from the north.
Btw about the italian in MH,my own MH report show minor North african+Nigerian+Celtic admixture that never pops up in any other calculator so i can't it seriously.I think their algorithm is really f*cked up

What's the source?
I am 50% from Phthiotis and this is a well known event in the area (people have family lores etc) but it is also well documented.
With that being said, I doubt the myheritage calculator is particularly sophisticated. I did input my 23andme results in there, however and it gave me interesting results. Besides 50% from Phthiotis I am also 50% from Messenia and the mix of a northern shifted maternal side (Phthiotis) with a southern shifted peloponessian paternal side (it scores Italian&Anatolian) puts me in the dead center of mainland Greek plots. Myheritage sees me as 83,9% Greek and south Italian, 12,3% Eastern European and 3,8% Ashkenazi. With the last one being an obvious misscall (23andme is great at picking Ashkenazi ancestry and I have none) from being a med with a bit of east euro input, it seems to me that myheritage sees me as 85% pre-migration era Greek/15% early Slav. The majority of the latter almost certainly comes from my maternal side (extremely blonde/grey eyed great grandma). This agrees with both Stamatoyiannopoulos’ figures and Razib Khan’s who sees modern greek being on average about 83% bronze-iron age Greek like and 17% polish like.
I scored no Balkan which isn’t a surprise since 23andme found zero areas in Albania or Bulgaria for me (I only have a handful of supposed Albanian cousins but they appear to be partially Greek). In fact I didn’t score any Eastern/western Macedonia or any Thrace at all either. Whatever Slavic input that is it appears pretty old.
Yeah I was surprised they made sense. Because whatever their calculator is trying to see or interpret usually makes zero sense. For a company founded by Israelis their calculator is surprisingly bad at estimating Ashkenazi origins. And Finnish ancestry for a Greek is kinda ridiculous, it is as if it is trying to compensate for something.
