that's what I meant by (and some other). I assume that more Czechs who realize it probably have some Gypsy/Romani ancestory as well.

Realigning ethnicity by language and cultural affiliation rather than genes alone is one partial way out of the current mess of multiculturalism and towards societies that work.

The muslim problem remains since they don't outmarry (without outmarriage there is no real assimilation or even integration, only ghettoization). But that's a separate problem.

Iactually is kinda accurate that parts of poland you are from can define your look.More Blondes are in north,on south you can found more people with dark hair,eyes,But difference isn't it big,you must really pay attention to see this.I think you look polish from what are you saying but skin is also important because we are not as pale as nordics,and

from this you can tell difference between lighter kind of polish and nordic people.

Is this before or after the large-scale migrations after WWII?

Do I look Polish? (Polish, American)

Trying to decipher where exactly my genes lie. Do I look like more of the northern, Baltic Pole or the southern, darker Pole? My grandfather on my dads sides last name was Kozak, and my mother is a full Pole (Lasz surname) Just curious of opinions. I'm 5"11, 175 pounds.

I don't see any photo here so hard to say. Poles differ in terms of height, weight and eye or hair colour. I don't even know if you're male or female. Your height would be more common among men here.

As for your parents' surnames, Kozak is actually far more common than Lasz and doesn't actually mean you're if Cossack origin.

do I look polish ?

this is a link to a photo of me :
and this is as well

my grand mother always said we came from Poland and eastern Europe and now I have flashes where i feel i am an ashkenazi jewish from Poland.

Do I look like this ? Could this be ?
I am about to take a DNA test as this whole mystery is really bugging me and I have been wondering for years.
Now coincidences are becoming way to strong to be mere coincidences.The more I read about eastern Europe and judaism the more i feel like i am remembering things that are in my blood !

I don't think you look especially Polish. There are many different types of Polish face, colouring etc. You could be any European nationality really.

If I saw the picture and were asked to guess the nationality I would have thought Spanish or French (but that might partially be hair, facial expression and the way you're holding your head).

As atch said, you look like you could be from anywhere in Europe...

Did your grandma tell you you were of Polish or Jewish origin?
There's something about your cheekbones that may suggest Polish origin but it might be just a suggestion. You look European.

I'm only 12% Polish but some girl was talking to me in Polish in Berlin I was like o.O "sprechen sie Deutsch!" Then she switched to German

Your point being Poles often are physically mistaken for Germans and vice versa?

There aren't really clear genetic dividing lines (AFAIK) between Jews, Germans, Poles and Ukrainians. The language and culture lines are a lot clearer.

Not having seen a likeness, I really can't say:-)

A Polish female acquaintance of ours once remarked that Poles tend to have characteristically oval-shaped faces.

This is a pure Pole though he doesn`t look typically Polish. I notice some Asian features which give pleasant impression.
