If you want to believe that the Romans had that much of a genetic impact on the Balkans then be my guest. However there isn't any genetic data that supports this though I am of course open to any idea. I'm sure the Romans would of left some YDNA markers that could verify such genetic imprint. There is some but certianly not that large from everything I have seen.

As for the Ilyrians samples. They are mostly Bronze Age samples from Croatia. Samples from other areas of the Balkans weren't really like Northern Italians anyway. They were more East of Italians. Lets also not forget that they are just Bronze Age samples.

And yes, I am aware that the Ilyrians went to Italy.

Where, precisely, did I say that the Romans had a big genetic impact on the Balkans as a whole? I think I went out of my way to say that this area, this culture, was an exception.

I "said" that the "Illyrian" sample might have been from just one of the tribes in Illyria.

What other Balkan samples are in the study? From what I can see, just the "Illyrian" one, and some of the Thracian ones. I get both, and at pretty high levels.

Sorry if these results are upsetting to some Albanians, but it is what it is.

Everyone is going to have to pull up their big boy pants, in every ethnicity, and accept what the genetics shows.
 
Did you notice any differences in samples that popped up between the two maps of the separate versions of raw data? For me, AncestryDNA was more substantive.

I'll edit in the images once I reach ten posts, but aside from minor differences, the maps look fairly similar at first glance. However, the shades of blue do differ somewhat between each sample.

My biggest question at the moment is why 'Saxon' is completely absent from the ancient populations, despite there being plenty of genetic similarity to other Germanic tribes like the Longobards, Franks and Vandals.

The Saxons seem to have significant North Germanic and, by extension, 'Finnish' ancestry, so it doesn't surprise me that they wouldn't show a particularly strong affinity to present-day British. I'd think that Orcadians might be an exception.

Hi Salento.
How do you do. Cool calculator this puntDNAL. For the first time I could see Brazilian ethnicity. These are my results puntDNAL. First, puntDNAL K15, recommenced by GEDmatch, and second, puntDNAL K12 Modern, this last, choosed by me aleatoric way.

@Duarte that’s great. :)
 
Well, it's not good for North/Central Italians, or at least not for me. I've never gotten anything other than North Italian and Tuscan as one and two. Also, where is my similarity to Southern Italians? Is this based on Eurogenes K15? If it is, just more proof of how wrong it is. I am not Albanian, as some of them will no doubt be happy to hear me report. :)

Interesting. Again in consonance to the study which puts the Roman soldier closer to modern Iberians.

I guess puntDNAL K15 is not related to Eurogenes K15.
K15 is just a reference to the number of clusters.

"Italian" means "North Italian"?

I don't think it was created with Europeans in mind, and I don't think it's particularly good for Southern Europeans, at least. It's the only calculator, ever, that didn't give me an Italian population as first choice. Well, there's one other...something Kurd did, but that's because for some inexplicable reason he only used Southern Italians. I think I might have come out Bulgarian on that one, and then Albanian, or the other way around, I don't remember.

Have you run the Dodecad ones?

The Saxons seem to have significant North Germanic and, by extension, 'Finnish' ancestry, so it doesn't surprise me that they wouldn't show a particularly strong affinity to present-day British. I'd think that Orcadians might be an exception.

Mine seems to be all over the map regarding the different DNA sampling companies. I show up heavily as north atlantic/orcadian/west norwegian and now longobard/saxon. I think it confuses me more than anything.

I'm a Frank-Saxon and have a 2.9 distance to the ancient Longobard-Frank samples. My most close relation to present populations is Northern German and Southern Dutch, which is correct related to my documented tree. My third and fourth present population relation on MyTrueAncestry are both English and I'm not aware of any English ancestor. So I would say Saxon is implied in Longobard and the present English population has - as generally accepted - a lot of Saxon ancestry.

Distant fits, as to be expected given that you have mixed ancestry, but at least your ancestral populations show up. As always, if you have Southern European ancestry, he finds it. Pity he never updated them.

I've forgotten, did he have Amerindian admixed reference samples?
 
I was talking about the ancient Saxon samples. You're not going to be very close to them unless you have lots of Norwegian or Western Finnish ancestry.

Generally, when we are talking about Saxons and Old Saxony (see e.g. Wikipedia for both terms), it's about Northern Germany. No mention of Norway, Sweden or Finland. So what ancient samples of Saxons does MyTrueAncestry use?

Iron Age samples from Hinxton.
