Genetic Continuity Between Ancient and Present Egyptians

Cool thanks for the info! This is straight ignorance here with no malicious intent mind you: what about the pale red heads? I know they were rare enough to be associated with Set but also supposedly Ramses II was one. Again I say this is from ignorance nothing malicious: were they from somewhere else? Or is that something perfectly possible with such genetics?

This same study said that there is a genetic continuation between the ancient Egyptians and the current Egyptians, in general my goal of this post is to know, does the world see us as Egyptians as occupiers or are we the grandchildren of the Pharaohs or at least there is a connection between us? I'd be excited to know.
