    Well there is no clear-cut answer to that question but I'll try to summarize:
    Slavic (linguistic classification) and Balkan (geographic classification). If I say Bosnian well that's just a nationality and country I'm from, which technically and officially didn't exist when I was born, it was part of SFRJ. Genetically it's too similar and basically in between Serbs and Croats anyway so it becomes a moot point. Bosniak is the official label mostly for Muslims from Bosnia, but that's just a classification based on religion, not genetics. If I say European it's probably too broad but it's the most definite "component" as 23andme shows with the highest degree of confidence. And according to AncestryDna I'm 99% East Europe and 1% South Balkan/Greek.

    But to simplify it... I'll call it Balko-Slavic

    North West European (1/2 English) and East Mediterranean (1/2 Sephardic). DNA wise I see half my DNA as being predominantly Indigenous around the North Atlantic and North Sea zone, ie Britain. The other half is complicated, though for now I believe 1/2 my Sephardic ancestry is predominantly ie maybe 70-80% of it is Indigenous to the East-Mediterranean and Aegean part of the world, particularly the Levant, Western Anatolia and Greece.

    while I am not well versed in the DNA make up of Bosnians, I'd think that they are quite a bit more than 1% south Balkan/Greek, but then again Ancestry dot com seems to be notorious for shorting people on their southern European percent when east, west, or north European is the dominant trait.

    I am too mixed up to tell, but the side of my family most genetically homogenous is probably the Polish.

    The rest of me is divided between Atlantic and West Med (from Iberia), and an East Med component from Sicily, and traces of SSA from Cape Verde.
