    Sinhala Genetics

    Does anyone know of any Sinhala GEDmatch results? Would be especially interesting to see their oracle results. Since they claim origins from Bengal, I suppose they'd be genetically like Bengalis but with extra AASI (that they picked up from the native Veddas, South Indians (while migrating to Lanka), & Tamils most recently) and less East Asian/SE Asian. Since my assumption is that they'd be like Bengalis with more AASI and less East Asian, I guess they'd have the greatest autosomal similarity with Central Indians who are a population intermediate between Bengalis and South Indians.

    And while we're on the subject of Sinhala genetics, I don't think it'd hurt to discuss the genetics of their neighbors i.e. Lankan Muslims and Lankan Tamils (although the focus of the thread is Sinhala people since I'm more interested in their genetics right now).

    When you refer to bengalis, which caste/group are you referring to? It's very hard to refer to them all as bengalis.

    The time period is during Buddhist era of the Bengal region . I don't think they had caste system during those times .

    I believe I do have a Sinhala kit #, I'll have to look it up.

    BTW guys, I've been super busy lately and not online as much. I have a bunch of PMs I haven't responded to. I will try to get to them tonight.

    I have 5 Sinhalese Sri Lankan kits and their calculator results, but not oracle results. http://185.144.156.77:3000/gedmatch.html

    I can list the kit numbers once I get back home.

    If I remember it right, the Sinehalese scored very similarly (in Harappa) to one group of Bangladeshis, but another group of Bangladeshi scores very different.

    10.44 SE Asian in Sinhalese? Didn't expect that.

    How would that get to Sinhalese? I think it's most likely AA stuff coming from Bengali gene flow. Then again BEB samples have much higher NE Asian. One possibility is the migration from Bengal preceded NE Indian gene flow into modern Bengalis.
