    K13 results from an Albanian (Gheg) from Montenegro + Vahadou

    My friend here, an ethnic Albanian from Montenegro. However I am quite confused on how he scored such high baltic, none of his recent ancestry indicates so far.

    If someone can help figure this out, would appreciate it. There's really no clue from any of his possibly ancestry causing this.

    While the baltic is on the higher end, according to some Albanian Montenegrin results I've seen on another site ( the one that rymes with "city"... ) these results are not that strange for the population.

    I can post them here if you want, I think it's preferable than posting a link to that site..

    I don't want to doubt your friend but none of the Balkan populations are as "pure" as they think they are.

    That's understandable, I was just curious because I am from the same village and scored 16% Baltic.

    Either way, thanks

    Judging by his Dodecad K12b results, he seems roughly equidistant between the Montenegrin and Albanian Montenegrin averages.

    Distance: 3.867% / 3.86739915
    55.6 Montenegrin

    Sorry if it sounded aggressive, wasn't my intention. Just a general observation. Maybe your friend is indeed an outlier.

    Ah okay, I mean I wouldn't doubt it, he has ancestry from tribes like Piperi (which inevitably mixed with slavs), I double checked with him and he does have two great grandparents on his paternal (great grandmother) and maternal side (great grandmother) who indeed have slavic ancestry. Maybe that fills in some of this gap, I am not a full Albanian from Montenegro, my mother is from Shkoder so perhaps we weren't in as much contact with slavs on the coast. I plot very closely to Kosovars and Torbesh.

    Thanks for the help.
