    Hi Robert, I’m a Sicilian-American from California. I had my ethnic DNA dome recently & I came out 64% Greco-Roman (to be expected) but also 9% Jewish & 9% Middle East (which could be more Jewish or Arab). Sicily once had large Jewish & Muslim populations as you say which Queen Isabella in 1492 said “convert or leave.” Some left & apparently some stayed. I have read that many Jews from many countries hiding out in Northern Italy during WWII were given fake Italian ID’s saying they were from Sicily because they thought Sicilians looked Jewish.

    BTW Tuesday I leave for Vancouver to get out of this 100* + heat. Love Canada.
