Yeah, but we can still see that the number of Muslims in what is today Armenia declined.
Yeah, definitely. I seem to recall reading that Erivan/Yerevan Governorate/Guberniya was only 56% Christian back in 1897 but that this territory is overwhelmingly Christian right now.

Tatars in Crimea still exist. AFAIK, most of them moved back to Crimea after 1989. Their % is much less than it was before 1944, but that might be due to a lot of Russians and/or Ukrainians moving to Crimea after 1944.

I think the biggest example would be native populations across the Americas who were not just displaced, but genocidally wiped out by invasive settler populations from Europe, primarily.

Other populations include the pre-European populations of the European continent... and before them the Neanderthals.

Homo Erectus also seemed to vanish with no traces (figuratively speaking!).

thousands of Cherokee were forced out of their homeland in Tennessee / Georgia and made to walk to Oklahoma (Trail of Tears).

real shame. they had a settlement in Red Clay and were on their way to developing a nation within a nation.
