I can't understand what these results mean, from my DNA test:



But what I do know is that I am an exact match in the maternal line to a woman born in Gioiosa Ionica, Torrevechia Italy in 1886.



I can trace my direct maternal line to a Caterina (maiden name unknown) who was born about 1515 and married around 1534 to Francesco Maurici in Carini (PA) Sicily.

Anyone offer any advice??

Thanks!

Thanks Carole!

I would be exited if I knew what any of those numbers meant. While I did find an exact match, the testing agent does not allow you to contact them. They only provide you a link to invite them to join the website (genetree.com).

I hope I hear from the person so we can compare notes!

James..

The only thing I can tell you is that Gioiosa Ionica is in Reggio Calabria, not Torrevechia Italy. Not sure if that helps at all but I wanted you to know anyways.

Having said that, you can try contacting Lou Loccisano who is not only a member here, but hes done alot of work with DNA results with the people of Gioiosa, Martone and Grotteria. His site is called Calabria DNA Project. You should contact him. He's really nice and would love to share want he knows.

Wow isn't THAT a cool coincidence! A DNA researcher who has focused (and has the microfilms for) Gioiosa.

I am writing him an email right away.


Thanks !!

Very Happy
