    Identification with YDNA

    Do you identify more with your YDNA finding than your other hundreds of branches, if so why? Or do you identify with your maternal DNA more than your other hundreds of branches, if so why?

    I would say that overall yes I identify with my Y-DNA the most. I do still find my other ancestral lines important though.

    I identify with everything since I'm a Heinz 57. As an American, I have ancestry from all over Europe (with the exception of Slavic Europe, to my knowledge), so I'm proud of it all, and it reinforces an appreciation for all cultures/ethnic groups.

    Ydna, because it is a mans world, it would mean nothing without an Y chromosome.

    Interesting question.

    Personally, I can't say I identify with either my Y-DNA or mtDNA, or indeed, any other ancestral parameter.

    My domains of identification are far more shifted towards ideology, culture or spirituality. I'll always identify better and deeper with an inquisitive and knowledge-hungry Y-DNA E1b1b1 Somali individual than any given West Asian individual with the same Y-DNA or mtDNA as myself.

    Might be surprising for some to read a genetics and anthropology forum admin has no inherent stake in "genetic identity"... This just happens to be the reason-based direction my life journey has been guided towards. I know others here have profoundly different positions, which I look forward to reading.

    yDNA 100%, you can't change it at will as it is with aDNA soup where ingredients can be changed drastically just in one generation.

    I do not identify with my Y-DNA or mtDNA. I don't really identify with my autosomal DNA either. I find all of those things interesting and enjoy researching the origins of myself and my ancestors, but I identify more with the culture, people and area in which I have lived most of my life.

    I got the impression the original question was asked within the context of genetic testing, and not about the totality of one's life. In other words, which of your test results means the most to you?

    For me, it's my y-dna test results, because, as a man, I identify most with my direct male line. That does not mean I don't value the rest of my results or that I think everyone must feel as I do.

    I'd be lying if I said I don't identify with my Y-DNA to some extent, nevertheless I am more curious about my paternal marker's history (and when I say "my paternal marker", I mean J1 as a whole) than anything else quite frankly. The thing is, since my paternal marker is common in traditionally patrilineal ethnic groups, it's often used by bigots to ostracise other people, which is idiotic of course. Much like DMXX said, I'd feel more akin to a curious and intellectually-enthusiastic individual who doesn't share my paternal lineage than I would to some anonymous bigot who wants me to know that I'm his "brother from another mother" just because we happen to share the same paternal ancestor 6000 years ago.
