    Can I consider myself Slavic?

    Hello there, I recently did a DNA test with MyHeritage and I saw I have 6.6% Eastern European, I was excited yet disappointed by the amount, but then I thought, how much do I need of a percentage to consider myself Eastern European? Thank you, guys

    Have you uploaded your data to DNA.Land and GEDmatch? If so then please post your DNA.Land results and your Eurogenes K36 scores from GEDmatch. Also if your Slavic ancestry is South Slavic, then you will get more of Balkan or South-Eastern European than [North-]Eastern European.

    As long as you don't speak Slavic languages and don't have at least some Slavic grandparents no. 6,6 % on such kind of tests does not mean much

    Speaking slavic does not make that person be of slavic ethnicity


    My Path = ( K-M9+, LT-P326+, T-M184+, L490+, M70+, PF5664+, L131+, L446+, CTS933+, CTS3767+, CTS8862+, Z19945+, BY143483+ )


    Grandfather via paternal grandmother = I1-CTS6397 yDna
    Great grandmother paternal side = T1a1e mtDna
    Son's mtDna = K1a4p

    Being Slavic is really a spiritual thing. If you feel spiritual ties with Slavic people, you are Slavic.

    Many modern day Slavs are only ethnic Slavs because non-Slavic people adopted Slavic languages and were assimilated into the Slavic community. Speaking Slavic languages is most important . If someone does not speak Slavic languages and even doesn't have Slavic ancestors than he is as much as Slavic as he is an apache helicopter.
