    I love this thread. It's bringing out the Italian and Sicilian in me. :laughing:



    È vero. My mother used to untwine the bracciole at the table, in the meat plate. And the cotena too (I think...

    It looks like 23andMe "re-somethinged" their Ancestry Composition reports

    It looks like the Ancestry Composition reports has changed in its breakdown. Being half Sicilian and half southern Italian I can understand the Greek influence. Middle Eastern is gone and looks like...

    I don't think I participated in this thread, if I did please excuse me. :ashamed2:

    Yes, we must have been. I was on V4 in 2015. He must be on V5 since he just showed up in my DNA Relatives list this year. I would have thought that if anything his result would be more detailed than...
  5. Maternal 1st cousins showing different levels of mtDNA

    My first cousin and I, our mothers were sisters, come up with HV4a (me) and R0 (him). I know R is the ancestor haplogroup of H & V, but I'm curious why 23andMe reports our mtDNA at different levels.

    I think he actually is a paternal relative. He shares 4.6% and 2.3% DNA with two people who are unquestionably in my father's family... his grandson from his fling when he was 21 or 22, and the...

    I saw that tree picture. Pretty fascinating. Instead of focusing only on my paternal line I guess I have my maternal line to explore also to find this person.

  9. A predicted male first cousin, similar T yDNA, no shared X

    Someone, male, I don't know comes up at the top of my DNA Relatives list at 23andMe. He is predicted to be a first cousin. My Y haplogroup is T1a1a. His is listed as L-131, which I think is T1a2. We...

    You've come through again, thanks. :good_job:

    This may be the stuff of a historical fiction novel from my overactive imagination: if T did originate in Central Asia, maybe several men from one...

    Am I understanding correctly that T probably originated somewhere in Central Asia and then migrated west (the way the Proto-Indoeuropeans are said to have spread out), sort of settling in the Near...

    @Angela...

    That was great. It was definitely worth your effort. I knew only part of it but not the whole of it. This is the part I haven't been able to express properly:

    Thanks for confirming that I wasn't reading it wrong. There's nothing worse (well, maybe a few things worse) than telling the world you're one thing and you learn you're not. :D

    Yes, I think it is coming down to not enough sampling yet. I suppose as time goes on and more people test, unless this is just a fad and goes the way of 8-track tapes, it will become more accurate.

    True, especially since the very south of Italy and Sicily were Greek colonies. I think most of the immigration to the US from...

    Wow, that's pretty interesting that she's definitely from the north, and her numbers are pretty close to mine. I'm pretty sure my paternal side lived in Sicily for centuries, but I don't know about...
