My grandfather's parents were from the Campania region in Southern Italy. I have traced both of their ancestry back to the 1600s... all of my documented Italian ancestors lived in the Campania region, save for one who moved to Italy from Spain in the early 1600s.

I expected to find Southern Europe in my DNA but instead, I got Middle Eastern, which I suppose makes sense.

Scandinavian 76%
Middle Eastern 18%
Uncertain 6%

I just ordered a test from ConnectMyDNA. It'll be interesting to compare results to the above.
