    Im from Balkans from Serbia but it Looks like I have some Greek Ancestry. It is in all Tests. Maybe it is just Serb but it is similar to Greek?

    There was a update on Mytrueancestry, before I was Roman, but now Im Greco-Bactrian those are Greek invaders in Pakistan. I guess because of Pakistan/Indian genes + Greek Im somewhat similar to them. I suspect they had some Asian genes too and mixed with the locals. Also on 23andMe I have a strong match for Greece. I have 9 regions for Greece.

    I heard that once before but that is uncertain because gypsies didnt left written records which are proofable. There are many speculations.

    Time frame all wrong. Roma came into Europe 1000 years later.It's also doubtful if the Roma were a distinct tribe at that time. Anyway, Alexander never made it back.

    How do these Internet services determine your ancestry?

    You order online and pay for it. You receive a kit with instructions how to provide a dna sample. You send it back to the lab and they analyse it and post your results on your online account. When you have your results, you can do some more things for free too.
