Ashkenazi Jews, etc

I am presently researching my family genealogy. My grandfather's maternal family were/are Jews who originate from the Ukraine. My grandfather is a stereotypical NPA type; turning ninety-one in April, he shares the longevity of his mother's family. Earlier in life he had explosive rages, including one incident in which he grabbed and hurled an entire tray of tea upwards, where it coated his papered ceiling and prompted visitors to ask how the enormous tea stain came to be there. As my grandfather was fostered as an infant (but later contacted by his mother at age fifty) the only lasting association I have with this wing of my ancestry is my unusual surname, which derives from a Jewish word.
Do Ashkenazic people in general tend more to be NPA types, or to possess both N and A traits? I would say my great-grandmother was an NPA type, while her family seemed a mixture of NPA/NPA-/NA types.
As an aside, I should likely mention to the board that I will be taking a trip to Poland in the summer of this year. I promised the NPA board that I would do this several years ago, so the phrase 'better late than never' decidedly applies.
To serve both personal preference of a quieter time and NPA authenticity/accuracy, I will head to the smaller, less-frequented cities of Lublin and Gdansk, where I can gain better impressions of the native population and take some pictures of crowds in the city and/or at markets etc. Requests or suggestions as to photography or info gathering are welcome.
