I just wish that I could find someone else who is also Italian and Macedonian and compare my results with theirs, because I get the impression that the reason why it's showing up at Greek is because that's just how those two blend together. If I could find another person that is Italian and Macedonian then I could at least see if they get Greek results too.

    Do you have any closer autosomal matches say like 2 or 3rd cousin? If so where are they from?

    I have two matches of people whose estimated relationship to me is "1st cousin twice removed - 2nd cousin once removed," and those two people are a mother and her son. Their location is the United States so I don't know where they're from, but I'm going to assume that they're Macedonian because of their last name.

    When I compare my percentages to their percentages, I notice that they both have the Balkan percentage that I'm missing (The woman has 32.9%, the man has 46.4%, and I have 0%) I also notice that my Greek percentage is much higher than their Greek percentages (The woman has 55.4%, the man has 45.5%, and I have 92.7%)

    I am mixed South German and English, leaning South German, and regularly score "French". My mother is almost half South German and English and regularly scores "Belgian" or "Dutch". I think what you mention is just the way the mix appears to the calculator does happen quite a bit.

    I'm a bit confused with what I'm looking at. I removed the Macedonian population, I typed in all the numbers and clicked validate. It says "The results of the cards below concern 29% of your ancestors." Then they show a map with numbers. What do those numbers represent and what does that percentage of ancestors represent? Also, it shows the highest numbers are in Italy and Greece, lower Italy and lower Greece are in the 50s and even some areas go up to 60. What do those numbers mean?

    That's what I'm thinking as well, although, the thing that I notice is that when I look at my distant cousin matches, a lot of them do have Greek relatives further back in their ancestry. With that in mind, in order for someone to be a cousin, you're sharing the same ancestor. So one person was like a 4th cousin and they had relatives that were Greek in their ancestry. Since they're my 4th cousin, that means we share a common ancestor. That means that if their ancestors are Greek, then there's a good chance that our common ancestor was also Greek. And I found this in a few people looking at their family trees. So it might be that the mix is contributing to my Greek results, but I think there's also a possibility that I do have Greek ancestors that were just too far back for me to know about.

    I think I understand what this shows, but I also am not sure. When I just put in my results normally without removing the population, it shows low 80s scattered around southern Italy and high 80s scattered around southern Greece. When I remove Macedonia (FYROM), the numbers drop down to around the 50s in both southern Italy and southern Greece. And when I remove the population, it also says "The results of the cards below concern 29% of your ancestors."

    Macedonia
    cool results! i'm macedonian as well, on dna land i show 0 balkan as well, but quite a bit of like baltic and med islander, whereas my mom's biggest chunk is balkan and maybe a bit italian and sardinian. all this to say, if my mom had over 50% balkan, you'd think i'd inheritance a percentage of that. i think a lot of these calcs have difficulty parsing through admixtures especially for people in this region who are already pretty mixed.
