I think I remember you once stating that your ancestors came to Macedonia from Moskopole (Albania) which makes the southern Albanian "Highly Likely Match" a remarkably close match. Do you perhaps have an ancestor (from your mum or dad's side) that you might or might not be aware of with roots from the Peloponnese?
Karposh - the following is the 'complete' report. I believe the results show an equivalent ancestry match for the Peloponnese and southern Albania (Epirus); however, "Highly Likely Match" appears to show the closest connection to Greece as a whole.

I don't know how their algorithm works to be honest, but it might be possible I might not be aware of those roots you pointed out. As an example, I do know (based on detailed family research I did) that from my wider family some people migrated and settled in Greece a while back. One person went to Athens (it's possible he was related somehow to my great-grandmother, from my mother's side). Some could have ended up in the Peloponnese (?), but also, this could go even further back to a time period I am not even aware of. [I can say with confidence that based on what I was able to research and find out that most of my non-Macedonian ancestors hail from Epirus, including specifically the area or region that's part of Greece].

FWIW, don't forget I also have Macedonians in my family tree and they are native Macedonians so I'm not sure how (southern) Greece or Bulgaria (Haskovo, Stara Zagora) come into picture here.




RTG, I can't say I'm surprised by the results.

PS: Furthermore, the report says that I am 0.5% Italian, which is within statistical error. However, they explain with "confidence" as follows regarding my Italian ancestry:

"You most likely had a third-great-grandparent, fourth-great-grandparent, fifth-great-grandparent, sixth-great-grandparent, or seventh-great- (or greater) grandparent who was 100% Italian. This person was likely born between 1710 and 1830."

[According to AncestryDNA "I am" 69% Greece & the Balkans and 31% Eastern Europe & Russia.]

So you're an ancient Greek after all!

This would be great to do. I just can't bring myself to connect my DNA to my credit card for the world to see!

I have to be honest, I am very wary (and maybe a little paranoid) about voluntarily giving away samples of my DNA to be analysed (and, who knows, maybe even stored) in this modern age of Big Brother. Even if it does seem like an innocent enough and frivolous exercise to satisfy some kind of curiosity about our past, I'm still very cautious nevertheless. I feel the same way about the latest fad of having a "Google Assistant" listening in on our lives at home. Sometimes I wish I was back in the selo...Honestly.
