The viking culture has always fascinated me greatly, and because of my ancestry I have taken time to study it. The vikings were also Germanic, so you very well could be! They were tribal, but the amount of land that they held is just positively mind blowing. If you ever have some spare time, spend some time getting some books at your local library. Also, any history from the Eddas is just so fascinating, it truly has given me an appreciation for their culture and I am so grateful for what was able to be preserved on paper before their oral history was completely lost.

I know that my dads grandparents came from Germany and settled in central Illinois and my moms grandparents came from Scotland. I see a theme in most of the posts. Almost everyone has German or Scottish heritage.We have lived in Illinois so long that we really don't have any customs left from either country. it kind of makes me sad.

So far I have found out that my family is German, English, Irish, and Native American. My family moved to Michigan about three generations ago.
