Hi ladies and gents, posting results for my mom, two of her first cousins, myself, and my daughter that fall under the Southern European, West Asian, North African categories.

Italian-25.2,24.4, 29.4,10.6,1.1
Greek and Balkan-19.8,18.9,14.5,15.3 (8.6 from my mom)7.1
Broadly Southern European-14.7,8.0,5.0,5.9,8.8
West Asian-0.2,2.7, 1.2,2.0,0
Broadly West Asian & North African-1.2, 0.9, 0.3,0.4,0

Ancestor locations for these kits:
Greek-Crete region,Central Greece,Peloponnese

So far no one gets ancestor locations to Albania, despite all of us getting DNA matches to some Albanians. I suppose we don't have quite enough matches to someone reporting ancestry from there.

I have also found out that my maternal grandfather's mtDNA is K2b1. Although hard to find connections with mtDNA, my mom now has two 3rd cousins there that are also mtDNA K2b1. One of them lists the same village as our village for his direct maternal line! He also shares DNA with the other K2b1. That one does not list a particular village for her direct line, but waiting to hear back from her to see if she knows anything further.
