    Many Dalmatian Croatians have Montenegrin Serb origin, especially in southern Dalmatia.

    I have read work of Croatian linguist Domagoj Vidović about toponymy and speech of Metković area.
    He said many local Croatian families carry legends about origin from Montenegro. Metković and part of Dalmatia south of Metković are ijekavian speakers like Montenegrins. It's only part of Croatia were Catholics/Croatians are native ijekavian speakers. Croatians from central and northern Dalmatia are ikavian speakers.

    No they dont. Montenegrin ancestry is completely irrelevant in Dalmatia except in Dubrovnik area (and that one is partly from Montenegrin Croats)

    And they don't look like Montemegrins either, who are darker and with more Vlach features. My parents visited MNE and said they don't look like us at all.

    I said southern Dalmatia. Southern Dalmatia is not only Dubrovnik.

    According to Vidović strong majority of present day Croatian from Metković area originated eastern Herzegovina (mostly from Popovo polje) and Montenegro, and tiny minority came from western Herzegovina.

    Typical Montenegrin is Novak Đoković and he is completely unpassable for Dalmatian Croat.

    Nope, they have nothing to do.with Serbs and especially not with Montenegrin baboons. Only connection of Dalmatia is with Boka and Croats there, they have nothing in common with primitive highland tribes above.
