Hello A.E. I have known of my Italian ancestry prior to my Ancestry DNA test. What I didn't realize was how much Southern European DNA I actually had. I'm nearly split between Scandinavian and Southern European, with a small percentage of other... My paper trail says my Italian roots are from Ticino Switzerland (Italian) portion and Milan Italy. I seem to recall my grandmother mentioning Sicily years back and I was recently matched to a possible 5 th cousin with Sicilian and Naples roots.

My MtDNA is V, Western Mediterranean. It seems to me that so far Souther European is not nearly as common as British Isles, Scandinavian, or Central European. I hope my bit of information helps.
