Does anyone have any clues as to the origin of the Vasquez family in Sicily? My ancestor is Giovanni Vasquez born 1734 in Sicily?, Married to Giovanna DiMaria of Sicily. I took a close look at my autosomal DNA test results and I believe that my Vasquez ancestor is the most logical point in my family tree to which I’ve inherited trace amounts of south American ancestry. Any ideas where the Vasquez family of Sicily came from and when in time? Are they all distantly related?
