American Saxon

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 

I am an American Saxon, English not German.

 

The majority of my ancestors immigrated to America from Sweden and Norway.

 

People in Scandinavia are Nordic-Germanic hybrids.

 

I am 22% Nordic (eastern territories of Hyperborea) and 38% Germanic.

 

Cena Wernlund is my great grandmother. Her family immigrated to America from the Netherlands in the 1800s. The Vernlunds immigrated to the Netherlands from the Jämtland province of Sweden in the 1600s.

 

Debbie Reynolds is a green-eyed, American-Saxon beauty.

Thanksgiving is a day to celebrate all; regardless of race, color, creed, or nationality.  You would seem to have ancestral connections to snow, mountains, and skiing.  I'm descended from a group better known for the art of Après-ski.:)

Top of America: 50% German, 30% Dutch, 20% Saxon English (me). The way things are going to be for a long long time.

I am not sure where you got all this or why you are even bringing it up in a ski forum. However, I find different numbers:



If you go to the source data, you will see some noticeable shifts over time.

This is not the first time that Oldschool47 has posted an irrelevant post dealing with race.

 

Sounds to me like someone who is insecure with his background and is looking to prove his value.

I bet this means you prefer the leg to the breast. 

 

You know, old Hadrian built a wall to keep the likes of you out.  But then, Constantinople is called Istanbul so there goes all we need to know about walls!!

I had a girlfriend long ago who's mom was a Nazi love child by program and design. Pop was SS, mom deemed genetically 'pure'... the foundations of a 'super aryan' race for the Fuhrer's new world order. My girlfriend seemed quite content with my mutt status. Her mom was a nutter though, always telling about all the good things Hitler did... asking about my heritage, etc..,

I'm quite content to be an indiscriminate genetic mess. Nothing above or below a certain latitude, but longitudinally fairly vast. My son even more so. smile.gif

Bad temper, right?  Just as soon splay the town across wagon wheels instead of taking tribute?    I know the type.  Not the poet/warrior Alfred The Great was, but pillaged with style!  Good gene pool to throw that Norman blood into.

And a contemporary of Edward I, too.  That couldn't have been too convenient for the Scots.

More of his father, Henry III.  Who didn't bother the Scots much.

Yeah -- saw that after I posted it and was reading more.  Henry III has always intrigued me -- not remembered for much more than being Longshanks' father, but he had a VERY long rule.

"By around 616, Edwin was in East Anglia under the protection of king Raedwald. Bede reports that Æthelfrith tried to have Raedwald murder his unwanted rival, and that Raedwald intended to do so until his wife persuaded him otherwise with Divine prompting."

Wasn't ^that Henry III's grandfather?  

 

post #24 of 29

Yep, Henry III was the son of the (in)famous King John (of Magna Carta and Robin Hood fame) -- Henry II fathered both Richard The Lionheart and King John, and they were all Plantagenets -- Henry II ruled England mostly from northern France because, back then, thanks to Henry II, half of medieval France was part of England, along with parts of Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. Henry II.  Quite a king.  One of England's best, I think.  But he definitely had a kid problem.   The clip depicts the drooping John at left, and Anthony Hopkins as Richard.   John would go on to lose a good part of Henry II's empire, including the castle and lands in Anjou from which Henry II ruled.
