When making this post, I forgot that West Bengalis don't have a lot of East Eurasian like many East Bengalis do (or do they?) so I'd expect them to be like non-Brahmin West Bengalis with some extra AASI.

    I don't know how much Bengalis changed genetically from the time that Sinhalas migrated from there, but based on my limited understanding, I'd assume they're like modern Bengalis (non-Brahmin ones) until shown otherwise.

    Couldn't it be some AASI-related component that gets misread as SE Asian?

    Is that the same case with high-AASI groups in close proximity to Sinhalese, like the Tamils and Veddas? Then I can agree with you.

    I get few Sinhalas in my matches earlier on FTDNA but not now. I have seen Sinhala match show up in Andhra Kamma samples before

    Reza is most familiar with the BEB samples and other samples from Bengal in general. I think he would be the best to answer the W v. E Bengal aspect.
