In that area settled the Normans (I think, not sure) a Germanic tribe. I don't know the reasons why and how but Germanic presence in Palermo area is well known. They still speak their own language, and they are the source of blond Sicilians. if you do deep clade analysis you will know if the source of your I2 were Normans or is a local clade. my clade comes from North some 2700 years in the past.Tutkun: I am I-M223 and my ancestors all immigrated to the USA between 1890-1904 from Sicily, provinces of Trapani, Palermo and Agrigento. Rural and mountainous villages. So it is in Sicily as well as Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio.
