    Thank you. Yes I also did the risky business of mention phenotype in my earlier post. I am not surprised - I used to think that they shared genetics with Sardinians. But they are actual much closer to Central Italians and North Italians. I compared on Poi's K36 Calculator for fits. And all North Italian population Samples + Central fitted better with Corsican than Sardinia.
