Add me to the apparently short list of those with an Italian paternal line tested to be Haplogroup C. I recently received my results from FTDNA and have marker values very similar to European V20 men, and also their first borderline result in the V222 subgroup with a value of 21 at DYS447. All other V222 men tested with them have 20. Would love some more information on the subject.

The photo representing the group is a portrait of Mongolian warlord and emperor Genghis Khan. A 2003 study published in the American Journal of Human Genetics reported a very frequent Y chromosome profile found across Asia and the authors speculated that it could be traced all the way back to Mongolia most prominent historical figures. The Ycs haplogroup inferred for Genghis Khan and his direct male descendants is haplogroup C.

Although I was born in Italy (and my paternal line as far as I can trace it back in time is also Italian), I belong to paragroup C*, or in other words, I am a C, but I don't belong to any of the known Ycs haplogroup C subclades. This is a typical Asian group, so I find it particularly interesting for my ancestry to know that I might have a paternal heritage from the East.
