Bosnia and Herzegovina – A Place

Summary

Map

Bosnia and Herzegovina is a country in Southern Europe.

History

The lands that are now Bosnia and Herzegovina were once part of the Roman Empire. After the collapse, the area became the Kingdom of Bosnia. It lasted until the Ottoman Turks appeared in 1463 and took over the entire kingdom.

In the 1800s, the land became part of Austria-Hungary. It was controlled by that empire until World War I when it became a part of Yugoslavia. There were civil wars in Yugoslavia after World War II which prompted the Bosnians to fight for their independence. However, they did not gain it until 1992.

The wars within the country claimed a lot of lives as statistics show that over 100,000 were killed and over 2 million became refugees.

Modern Times

The population of Bosnia and Herzegovina is over 3 million. The official languages of Bosnia and Herzegovina are Bosnian, Serbian and Croatian.

The largest ethnic group is Bosniaks (50.1%). Other groups are Serbs (30.8%) and Croats (15.4%). There are other smaller groups (3.6%) including Albanians, Montenegrins, Roma, and Jewish populations.

The majority of the Bosniaks people are mainly Muslims (44%) as are many Serbs (31%) and Croats (17%). Other religions include Catholic and Orthodox Christian.

Genographic ProjectGeno 2.0 Data

Data from Geno 2.0 is derived from the The National Geographic Society’s Genographic Project — the DAR. The Hg ID is specific to this site and is used to protect the identities of those who take part in Genographic research. Birth Country, Mother's Birth Country, and Maternal Grandmother's Birth Country have been normalized from DAR database fields. The Maternal Origin is determined based on the three previous fields.

Note: Geno 2.0 results currently use Phylotree build 16. I am working on changing results over to build 17.
