No preffesional PCA (whatever that is?) nor more thracian samples will solve the problem of:

1. DNA having a half life of 500 years - so a thracian sample from 200 BC would only have about 5% of their DNA remaining
2. Meiosis: randomly inheriting half of your DNA from the father and the other half from the father, therefore being possible that an individual has little to-no genetic to an ancestor from the distant past due to chance
3. Matching small regions of DNA (<7cM), which would be the case with these thracians samples has a very large probability of false positive (i.e genetic relations due to chance rather than inheritance)
4. Are the thracians even genetically homogeneous? Doubt it!

I'm sorry but there is little that can be done with genetics to determine who is more ancient. There are Y-DNA studies but those are limited in this respect.

Most of this getmatch and clustering is bullshit and thats why so much of this crap is unpublished.

Sorry Maco2envy it was a typo I meant professional which refers to academic work, the PCA I used was an experiment made in Gedmatch not something published by scientists. However it might be true.

Hello again (it seems my annual banning just ended).

During summer My-Heritage-DNA started presenting statistics for all Balkan countries that were missing before due to small number of samples. You can see North Macedonia, also Albania, Sebia, Bulgaria, Bosnia, Croatia and Slovenia now.

Classical Greek DNA (look at Aegean BA).

Figure D, in the red, the samples where taken from Spain in a Greek city colony.
The closest population to old Greeks are the Sicilians and to a lesser degree Ashkenazi Jews.

Note: Ploting close to a population doesn't mean you are genetically related directly to them. For example a half Chinese and half Irish person will probably end plotting somewhere in central Asia.

Cypriots are mostly either of Armenian or Arab ethnic ancestry. Cyprus was the place Armenians and Christian Arabs fled to after the conquest of their lands by Muslims.

A woman from Cyprus does an ancestry dna test - results are after 3 minutes in this video. Only 2% "Greece and the Balkans".

They are a mixed population of Europeans, Anatolians (Armenians) and Levantines.
I don't believe their Levantine input is much greater than the Anatolian one but the reason why they plot closer to Levantines is because of the European admixture pushed them close to Lebanon. Kind of like I mentioned before about a half Irish and a half Chinese person will end up plotting close to central Asia. So your data about Armenians in Cyprus seems mostly likely on point.

Yes, there are also Europeans (specifically there were settlers from modern Italy and other countries during the Middle Ages).

First and last warning. You lost the privilege of being treated as objective long ago. I don't care what sources you cite that refer to my ancestral homeland by that false name. You will refer to Macedonia as Macedonia, the Republic of Macedonia or the Macedonian republic. Anything else will be the end of you from here, permanently.

Enjoy it while it lasts you maggot.

My countrymen might be short sighted idiots, but you cowards will never win. You don't magically erase peoples minds because you add a prefix. They still believe they are Macedonian, you still have countless Macedonians living in Northern Greece who will always be in touch with their true roots.

You will never replace us, you will never fully own the Macedonian legacy. We will be a thorn in your hairy Turkish ass for eternity.

SUCK IT!
