To be accepted in *any* group one would need to go with the flow of that group.

So to join the “GC group” you'd have to…

(a) See Turkey as an invader/occupier
(b) Be in support of a unitary state
(c) See the removal of Turkey from Cyprus as liberation of the island
(d) Recognize the RoC as the sole legitimate government of Cyprus

...and so forth.

These are the kind of things you may get tested for because it’s not like people go round with an ethnicity testing kit.

It's the person's MINDSET that gets tested, not his blood or DNA.

According to Ottoman records many 10s of thousands of Anatolians were settled to Cyprus. Obviously those Anatolians were not "pure" Turkic people either... some of them might have had Greek or Armenian roots.

I agree with GR :shock: But I will tell you what I told you another time: Stop trying to fit in any specific group. It doesn't matter. If you need to be part of a group then what you are is a "UK born Turkish Cypriot". You will probably never fit in perfectly with Turkish Cypriots who were born and raised in Cyprus, and you will probably never fit in perfectly with the English. But that shouldn't bother you because it doesn't matter. You can be part of communities which you choose to belong based on your interests and beliefs - those communities don't need to be ethnicity based.

I wasn’t talking about this site. I simply explained what it would take (politically) to blend in with the GC mindset.

From my own experience Turkish Cypriots seem to be degenerate. Especially the UK ones, why would I want to identify with that? Even Mainland Turks look down on us, we're like some weird linobambaki experiment gone wrong.

I was doing a bit of research on this, because I am thinking to make the test. Apparently there are also places that let you upload your results and they do the analysis for free. So go download the raw data from Ancestry DNA and upload them to the following places, maybe they will give different results:
