Ok I just did my DNA through www.23andme.com. In my case, 1/4 of my heritage is Italian and all of that is Usticesi. That should make for pretty clean results. My DNA echo what Al described - I have 25% Italian, 6% Spanish and 2 Middle Eastern. Some of the Spanish will undoubtedly be from my non-Usticesi family lines. Also my paternal genetics point to Middle Eastern origins, so I figure ultimately my male line results from the Muslim expansion across the Mediterranean and Sicily prior to the Norman Conquest at around ~1000 AD. still speculative but it fits the pattern. Cool stuff.
