Mesolithic and Neolithic in Sicily
1.Genetic transition between Early Mesolithic and Late Mesolithic hunter-gatherers.
2.A near-complete genetic turnover during the Mesolithic-Neolithic transition.
3.Exchange of subsistence practices between hunter-gatherers and early farmers...
I just took a test through 23 and me that told me I am E-L17, a subclade of E-V13. E-V13, according to 23 and me:
"Your haplogroup migrated in large numbers from the Balkans into Europe about 4,500 years ago, triggered by the beginning of the Balkan Bronze Age. During this...
I am seeking a source of Gedmatch and Gedmatch Genesis compatible kit numbers or raw DNA for modern Sicilian genomes, and also if one exists, a source for prehistoric raw DNA from Sicily which can be converted to forms allowing comparisons. I would appreciate any guidance members have...
Hi all, as you can probably already tell, I'm a little surprised by my DNA results judging by my previous thread.
None the less, I'm roughly speaking half Italian (Sicilian and Italian) and half 'American' (French) and Eastern European.
Although my DNA results have shown that I'm mostly...
Recently I got a lot of kit numbers for Sicily, and having a bit of time on my hands today I compiled this table.

I have come across four or five forumites of Sicilian background, with a good grasp of Sicilian, its linguistic history, etc, and I thought it might warrant its own thread - noting I have made a habit of waylaying other threads, which I prefer not to do.
Either way, the linguistic history of...
Having had a look over the Haplogroup maps I thought it was strange to note the 1-5% occurance of R1b-L21 in what appears to be Slovenia. Anyone know why this could be? Also, what about the reasonable occurance in Sicily?
Is there a genetic study about Gallo-Italics of Sicily?
They were colonizers and soldiers brought to Sicily by Norman invaders in the eleventh century from their homeland in North Italy (and France?). Their descendants are still there.
Gallo-Italics of Sicily, also called...
