Does anyone know how much each era contributes to one's Haplogroup?For instance, how much does whether one is M222+ is dependant on who their ancestors were, for instance, before 0 AD, from then to 500AD, then to 1,000 AD, to 1,500, to 2,000 ?It seems to me that anyone with the "right" background could show up anywhere, become whatever folks were there, and propogate and populate, and show M22+ there?It could be Southern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Norway, France....Just askin.

> How does this explain M222+ in southern Ireland?
> I ask for take my surname as an example: According to book "Surnames of Ireland" by MacLysaght, then Herald of Ireland, Irish Morgans have four origins:
> O Murchadhain of Ui Failge (theoretically not M222; with one DNA result from the area - so DNA supports them as being not M222)
> O Murchadhain of Conmacne (theoretically not M222; with one DNA result from the area - so DNA supports them as being not M222)
> O Muireagain of Arighalla (theoretically not M222; with many DNA result from the area - so DNA supports them as being not M222)
> O Muireagain of Southern Ui Neill (theoretically M222; with no DNA result from the area - the Normans took their land and displaced them. Is the M222+ Morgan from Co. Clare such a displaced member.)
> The O Muireagain of Southern Ui Neill are identified members of Cenel Tadgain a branch of Cenel Maine of counties Longford and Westmeath. Cenel Tadgain includes the Foxes of Kilcoursey, O'Cathalan and many other families. It has been questionable whether Cenel Tadgain where M222+, for the leading branch (in later medieval period) where the Foxes of Kilcoursey and there had been no M222+ Foxes until now. This and other Southern Ui Neill results makes me believe that the Southern Ui Neill are M222+ and that results of Tir Connaill origin are skewed due to survival-bias (i.e. no norman settlement impeding the population growth and expansion of the local families).
> What family names in Westmeath (the center of the southern Ui Neill power) were tested for M222 in the Trinity report?
