    Slavic admixture in South Lithuania

    I uploaded to GEDmatch some samples from "Patterns of genetic structure... in the Lithuanian population" (Urnikyte 2019):

    Ca. 39 Southern Lithuania samples in this study have Slavic admixture (another 28 samples from this region appear Balts).

    I uploaded only the samples with clear Slavic influences:

    They are from the region labelled as Pietu Aukštaitija (South Aukštaitija) much of which was part of Poland before WW2:

    Some of them score "Estonian Polish" as their closest population in Eurogenes K13/K15 in Single Distances.

    =====

    Interestingly according to this study from 2004, South Aukštaitija has over 60% of Y-DNA haplogroup R1a:

    =====

    Edit:

    There are some Slavic-admixed samples also in Rytų Aukštaitija (East Aukštaitija), likely from southern parts of this region:

    Some of them are probably Lithuanized descendants of Lauda region Poles (Kaunas Uyezd), see here:

    https://translate.google.com/transla...a_%28region%29

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kovensky_Uyezd

    Quote from Wikipedia: "At the time of the Census of 1897, Kovensky Uyezd had a population of 227431. Of these, 41.4% spoke Lithuanian, 23.2% Polish, 19.8% Yiddish, 11.6% Russian, 2.3% German, 0.5% Tatar, 0.4% Belarusian (...) as their native language.[1]"
