Yes, NAT GENO was what I used and I am I-M223. All ancestors immigrated from Sicily between 1890 and 1903. My top 2 Match Populations at NAT GENO are 1) Italian (they use Italians from Tuscany/Central Italy as reference population) and 2) Greek.

Did anyone get a time frame associated with the origin of their Y haplogroup? I read it represents "ancient" origins.

My paternal line is R-M269 L1066.1.

The paper trail for my paternal side is all Sicilian back to the 1700s.

I was "disappointed" to learn that this Y haplogroup is believed to have originated in the British Isles, specifically Scotland. Perhaps Euro Asian origin before that.

I was hoping for deep Italian roots or Middle East or even Northern Africa.

Of course, there have been many invasions of Sicily over the centuries.

If you really want to know your "Confirmed" Y Haplogroup, I suggest FamilyTreeDNA Y-DNA testing. 23andme showed my Paternal Haplogroup as R-S660, but when I went with the FamilyTreeDNA Big Y-700 test, my confirmed haplogroup was R-FGC19862. FamilyTreeDNA goes deeper, branching off subclades, SNP's and etc...basically a branch on a tree as if it were and they show you how it branches off and also list countries and surnames of others.

I'm Italian on my Maternal side only and see North African and Middle Eastern heritage, very small % however and I noticed it changes between DNA companies, some show more % and some show different regions or areas.
