    Is 46% considered a small amount of HG dna?

      Where did the Bulgarian population get the 31% NE dna from? Was that a back migration from north western Europe? Bulgaria has the highest variance of R1b-L23.

        Bulgaria sits in an interesting place in Europe; namely to the NW of the Bosporus. When Neolithic farmers crossed from Anatolia to the Balkans prior to 6000 BC, Bulgaria was received many early settlements. When Ancient North Eurasians invaded Old Europe on horseback (ca 3900 BC), coming from the Ukraine, many of them were likely M269+. If L23 wasn't born in Bulgaria, it likely spent its childhood there.

        As you, I have great interest in L23, because that is the MRCA for my maternal uncle (who is CTS7822*) and most of the European R1b family (L51+).
