Not much to tell really. Its just the same with other Macedonian population that were islamised during the 500 years of Otoman empire, most of them not willingly.Reward for that usualy was a sack of grains .. or their life. Some families that keep track of family history a few generations back, have Christian named ancestors. Any other traces that would be found are probably from mixing of families by religious line, so macedonian muslim would often marry a turkish or albanian. Being that they are mountain vilages cut out of civilization their culture is a little different compiled with muslim tradition but in reality if a macedonian wont tell you he is muslim you wouldnt notice the difference

WRONG ,Johnny ! Macedonian muslims(Torbeshi) from Labunishta,Borovec,Oktisi,Podgorci and Gorani from Urvich and Jelovjane are part of the Mijak tribe , old autochtone Macedonian/Iliryan tribe ! NOT Turks or Albanians !

they are Albanians and Turks from the Ottoman empire.
