I have traced my maternal line back to ca. 1520 thanks to Sicilian Church records, and made a chart of the line...

So how far back are you with relative certainty?

I can't get further back than my mother, via records. But when I let my imagination run wild, I get back to the Danes of Normandy.
:lol:
later: Looking at my earlier answer ^, I've since revised that view. Going by a tentative tracing in Ancestry.com, it may trace back to Sweden in the Viking age. But who knows how accurate those entries are? It would have been from a single unknown Swedish woman who was the wife of a Swedish Jarl who briefly was king of Denmark. Judging from the looks of my rare U5b2b2 haplotype, that could fit.
