    Sounds about right to be honest. Greek, Albanian and Southern Italians all are very similar with these tests. I’m on my phone and cannot see your gender, but if you are male would you mind sharing your Y haplogroup assigned by 23 and Me?

    I am not surprised by this. There are some Albanians that plot further south than expected (south of mainland Greeks, even due to having less Slavic input than Greece has) and might be closer to Sicilians or other "Mediterranean islander" populations.

    You are Kurdish so there is no reason that you would score as much as a Balkan.

    Some also score med islander and central/south Euro (Italian like). These two seem to vary in some cases with the Balkan. But most don't get 100% Med Islander from what Ive seen.

    Oh yeah theres a separate balkan category. Med islander appears to be based on Sicilians.
