They might have dispersed into their outnumbering locals after losing their own cultural identity. The actual leaders of the Hun federation, and, the original Huns from Central Asia may have been few relative to the number of locals they led.

I've heard a bit about the DNA project but I can't speak to its accuracy. I would be interested in having the DNA tests although my biggest curiosity lies with my mtDNA because I want more answers regarding the maternal side of my family as it is the most difficult to trace through regular genealogy channels due to the fact that I am only one generation removed from an unmixed Native American Indian ancestor if you will. My maternal grandmother was half Cherokee (Eastern band) from her father and half Arapaho Indian from her mother this making my grams half of each - again, putting me one generation removed from a full-blooded line though with mixed Indian heritage then two generations from a full-blooded line without the mixed Indian bands.

My father's family is also Cherokee; however, the line itself began with two brothers from Ireland coming to the US in the 1600s. They married Cherokee wives. Many of their descendants continued marrying within the Cherokee ethnic group yet still the last name brought over by the brothers in the 1600s still exists today. My younger brother was the last to have the name; however, he has three sons now so the name will continue. I only wish there were more Potters from my mother's family even if there is a high probability that it was a given name as the result of their trade (actually a tradition of making pottery passed from one generation to the next which is how I learned to make pottery) and then when the Native Americans not living on reservations were included in the first census records post 1860, my family ancestors show up on the records for the first time despite having lived in the area for many generations though in no public government records but they are in a few local, though non-governmental records.

I find it a shame I cannot trace my mother's family more than 4 generations back on paper, mostly death records since few birth records if any existed until my mother's generation.

If i thought DNA would give me the answers, it might be worth the cost incurred but I am not yet convinced beyond major doubts.

The tie-in to the Mongolians is information also found in medical research with regards to autoimmune diseases. Many of the women yet a great number of the men in my family on both paternal and maternal sides have some form of autoimmune disease. I was the second of my generation to be diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. I actually have two, SLE (form of lupus ) and Sjogren's disease whereas an older cousin has juvenile crippling RA, and in the last few years 2 others tested positive for autoimmune disease, and one other is still in the testing phase but should now in the next few months.

Out of some 1.5 million people with lupus, research shows the numbers to be highest among people with Native American Indian and Asian ancestry and also African ancestry though I must question if some of this could also be result of intermarrying between Native Americans and freed slaves since both were considered outcasts.

The research certainly bears out with the ethnic angle/genetic/heriditery angle as far as it relates to my family. I hoped perhaps with my father's Irish rootst that maybe I would be able to bypass the gene but it wasn't meant to be. My husband is of European descent. It's not giving me high numbers of probability but I do hope there are enough of their father's genes to stop them from having active autoimmune disease of any variety.

Genetic legacy left behind by Huns in Germany, Greece, Russia, Swiss-German and Swiss peoples in general ?

Interesting research. Thanks for the heads up letting me know where to find it.
