How much Anatolian Greek ancestry do they have versus native Thracian?

Hard to tell, this is actually a relative of mine and we call usually people from Istanbul, Thrakiotes (meaning Thracians). So the ancestry is from withing the borders of modern Istanbul. Ofc there is the term Konstantinopolites, but these people identified with the customs of "Thrakiotes". And by "these" I am mainy talking about my family line, I am guessing Istanbul had all sorts of people living there.

Edit, I just saw this was in the FTDNA forum, so answered my question. I was looking under 'new posts' not by forum.
