PostPosted: Thu Jun 06, 2013 10:51 am    Post subject: DiPasquale family Reply with quote

My great grandfather came to the US from the Palermo region in Sicily. His name was Gaetano DiPasquale (1880-1860). I believe his father was Arcangelo and his grandfather was also Gaetano.

I understand there was a family in Palermo called the House of Pasquale, of which it is believed anyone with the surname Pasquale or Di Pasquale may be a part of. This family is said to have originated in Valencia, Spain and came to Sicily in the 1600s. I am trying to understand if my family is part of this clan.

I also have done the Y-DNA 12 test and was shocked to discover I am Haplogroup N (M231). This group originated in the Baltics. It has made my story of connecting to the House of Pasquale incredibly difficult. I am looking for any information along these areas that may help in my search. Specifically, my only theories are false paternity or that the family in Spain was influenced by Varangian raiders at some point. Thanks!

Hello, Very Happy
This is a complicated subject, so I will try to keep it simple and brief,
which is not easy. Very Happy

From the web site en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...oup_N-M231

Haplogroup N-231 has a wide geographic distribution throughout northern Eurasia, and it also has been observed occasionally in more southerly areas,
including Southeast Asia, Nepal, Southwest Asia, and Southern Europe. Its highest frequency occurs among the Finnic and Baltic peoples of northern Europe,
the Ob-Ugric and Northern Samoyedic peoples of western Siberia, and the Siberian Turkic-speaking Yakuts (McDonald 2005). It is also carried by about 10% to 20% of Russians (Malyarchuk 2004).


So, you are correct to say your Haplogroup occured in the Baltics, but, as you can see, that is not the only place.

I don't know who you tested with. If it was Family Tree DNA
www.familytreedna.com/
then I would suggest you do a couple of things.

First, you need to do at least 67 markers. I know it cost more, but 12 markers are not enough.
Second, you need to compare these results with similiar surname project groups or join the Sicilian DNA Project Group.
www.familytreedna.com/...p=Sicilian

After you have done this, you will still need a paper trail to prove any connections that the DNA suggest you have.
If you have not researched all available civil records for the DiPasquale family in Palermo at least back to 1800, you need to do this first.

It will probably be difficult to prove your family is part of the House of Pasquale,
but you know they are from Sicily, so you are off to a good start.

Hope this helps,
Paul

Thanks for the reply. I tested with Family Tree DNA and am currently waiting for the upgrade to 37 marker test. I probably will upgrade further, per your suggestion. Do you know what the difference between Family Tree DNA's levels of testing vs. the Geno 2.0 tests from National Geographic is?

I don't think there is a difference unless it is the size of the database. They all seem to want money and hopefully, protect privacy.

I am in the Corbin surname project group with Family Tree and the project administrator
gathers the DNA results from all of the group members and matches them to see who have identical markers.

Since I have no information about my great grandfather before 1860,
I was hoping DNA would help me learn where he was born. The test results said
I matched up with a few Corbin's in the group and our families are from Baltimore, going back to the 1700s.
I was excited to know this, but without documents,(paper trail)
the information is not much more than a conversation piece.

I still believe DNA has a place in your family research, so hopefully you will
have a good experience from it.

Paul
