The homeland of the Balts used to extend from present-day Latvia, Lithuania and the Kalinin region old Prussia, pre-German Prussia to east of Moscow, and down to the north of Ukraine. So, it's safe to assume we are left with a, more or less, crystallized population of native Balkaners until the Slavic migrations. Everyone south of Hungary and Romania are South Slavs. But don't feel offended.
What Is the Origin of the Slavs?
Thracians could be quite different. The following numbers of the rare shared haplotypes and subclusters were found between populations analyzed: Y-chromosome testing is normally done by the commercial testing services on 12, 25, or 37 markers. The obtained values were converted to time using molecular clock of Soares et al. If they wanted to fully tested Falmerayer hypothesis they chosed the wrong method, unless their bias was part of a political agenda.

It is also worth noting that two subbranches of previously described U5a2 subhaplogroup: Both of those 2 alleles are common to slavs,first is to be found in dinaric populations,mostly in western balkans, Bosnians as it is mentioned below ,the latter one is typically slav,found across Russians,Poles etc. As the components of the C5c1 haplogroup are virtually absent in Asia and were reported only in the populations of Central Europe, the previous hypothesis by Derenko et al. Thus, in a way Haplogroup N and Haplogroup O are brothers of each other. For example, the most common subgroup in Europe is the R1b group, which is the 1b sub-haplogroup of the R haplogroup.

The contribution of immigrants to the analysed autochthonous population and their effect on the gene pool of that population has proven difficult to evaluate with classical morphological methods. It could be that Vucedol is to blame for that strong shift toward Crown Eurasians. Or slow coalescence through millennia old contact networks? To some extent, these two contradictory views on the earliest location of the Slavs have been verified with the recent findings of physical anthropology. It is true, of course, that Hellenistic philosophy, reasoning forms an important underpinning of western intellectual tradition in a way it doesn't elsewhere. We complement our genetic study with linguistic evidence, in particular by refining the phylogeny of the extant Slavic languages.
