Going back in time, by seventh generation, you had 128 ancestors and inherited small parts of DNA from almost all of them. Ancestry from before 150-200 years ago are disappearing very quickly from DNA. Just traces of them left.
    Yes but I can still see how it would be disappointing if your male ancestor came from a different culture or race than the one you identify with.

    I don’t think so, Haplogroups don’t necessarily impact someone’s race, culture, or ethnicity,

    Haplogroups are ancient and full of clades / mutations and all over periodic migrations.

    L and T are brothers, and guess what:

    I agree. Each ethnicity in the past or in the present is composed from more haplogroup carriers. And people from one haplogroup may belong to different ethnicity and/or nationality. L haplogroup in “Central Europe” is not different, it is spread all around. But definitely it is not only one pass how it arrived in places where it is now. It may span from early agriculture settlers, early metallurgy experts, maybe as Roman auxiliary military units from now days Syria, Alans as part of Sarmates, up to much later arrival as consequences of Crusader wars and Turkish expansion.
    Salento,
    Thanks for useful suggestion on L and T connection.
