    Default Who are the primary ancestors of the Maltese?

    Like the Ashkenazi thread.

    To me, the answer is obvious. But some people hold onto some strange ideas.

    People voting the first option are essentially saying Maltese are descended from the Sicilian population before it received Greek influence.

    Sicani were believed to be Iberian by one of the Greek historians but really they were just a Neolithic population, and if Maltese have ancestry from them it's obvious in their haplogroups -- full of J2, E1b1b etc
