Excuse my ignorance on DNA issues. But here is a nice little story:
when following/finding my ancestors in Pag birth records (where you can find your grandparents, their parents, their parents...), four or five generations ago, i found that someone named Grasso (Grasho, roughly in Croatian) married into Palcic (aparantly wealthier) family. And their child carried Palcic name, not Grasso as it would be common at the time. Although i can not remember now whare I read about that, the practice of keeping maternal name in these situations was not unheard of at the time.
So, one of my ancestors was actually an Grasso - probably italian . Now, my DNA and the paternal line ...
