  • I1a, I1b, and I1c Y-DNA haplogroup pins now available

    To all those who asked for them at the conference:

    The I1a, I1b, and I1c paternal line Y-DNA haplogroup pins are now available. Of course, we still have the main "I" haplogroup pin. Also a pin with a "?" in the center. See link below for more information and/or contact me privately.

    R1b in Sicily

    R1b in Sicily

    If R1b is Celtic. Then how did R1b's find themselves in Sicily?

    Are R1b's native to Sicily?

    Or were they brought from Austria or the British Isles?

    Or could the Normans have Celtic genes that left there mark in Sicily?

    Two types of Normans - Celtic-Normans & Nordic-Normans

    Two types of Sicilian Normans - Celtic-Normans & Nordic-Normans

    I believe there are two types of Norman poplations in Sicily: R1a & R1b.

    The question is whether R1b came from continetial European - from Spain or Austria or from the British Isles?

    I am asking this question - due to having a name via my mother's father's side "Azzo" that means "noble" in Germanic.

    Sicilian Peoples: The Normans

    Here is interesting article written by Vincenzo Salerno:

    Genetics & Anthropology in Sicily

    I think r1b's could be result of - the influx of the "Celtic-Nordic" Normans intermarrying with the local population.

    Nordic - most generally, refers to native inhabitants of Scandinavia, northwestern Europe and regions bordering the North Sea.

    Normans - residual Norse civilization of medieval Normandy, amalgamated with the essentially Gallic-Celtic population already resident there. In the medieval context, the Normans were Frankish as well as Scandinavian.

    R1a = Nordic
    R1b = Celtic

    There would have to be a few of us in Sicily
