Abstract

The study is part of a wider anthropological study devoted to the
biological and cultural (micro)differentiation among isolated village
populations in the Eastern Adriatic. The migration data are
collected from lntervlews and from the church registers of each island's
and peninsula parish. Using a well established methodology
of temporal migration analysis conducted on the island of
Brač, parental and ancestral origin of proposed populations of the
Eastern Adriatic and their migrational characteristics were investigated.
All results clearly confirm our presumption of the existence
of various forms of (micro)evolutionary trends for each island and
the peninsula, which are expressed through the migration of
alleles on each of the islands and peninsula. Although similar/ties
can be observed in migrational movements over the region in the
sense of high endogamies and small values of within-island and
off-island migrations, the change of migrational patterns for every
island and the peninsula is unique.
