    U152 in the Balkans

    I have a close friend of mine, who is ethnically a Bosniak from the Krajina region, and tested for R-U152, what is the possible explanation for this?

    I have 6 R-U152 in my 23andMe matches with Greek surnames, 2 have the same surname. That surname is common in Argolis.

    While it is a minority in most countries, U152 is very widespread due to being part of several cultures E.g. Bell Beaker, Unentice, Tumulus, Celts, Romans etc.

    I'm afraid 23andMe doesn't go any further, for them at least

    EDIT: I found 2 people on R-L2, that's one clade down from R-U152 according to YFull.

    One says has paternal ancestry from Gjirokastėr County, Albania. The other has paternal ancestry from a village in Messenia, Greece.
