Europe / Re: Norwegian ancestry - who would have thought it!

yes do ask him/her
ancestry can now specify regions and will probably sub divide the scandinavian bit
it pinpoints cheshier + isle of man as regions for my mother
+ parts of scotland
as for my russian latvian great grandfather \im clearly 12percent european jewish and it pinpoints locations to latvia +lithuanian which is where ancestors of our mayches who are 100 percent jewish come from {if they know }

having ROBERTS JONES + SMITH ON ENGLISH + wELSH  sides it helps if the regions are narrowed down

what a fantastic story and how wonderful that you all found each other

my first dna analysis gave me a bit of scandinavian which i was thrilled with asi actually studied Norwegian as a new language in 1979-1981 but afterwards my scottish blood seems to have eaten up the Viking percent on Ancestry

do any of you want a teach yourself norwegian book ?
i should probably donate it to a museum with my dissertation
in those days Norway had 2 languages Bokmal (closer to Danish) + Nynorsk (closer to country
 dialects)
every year there were official meetimngs about which changes to make to synchronise the 2 languages together until they became what is now NORSK

i also have winnie the Pooh in Nowrwegian (Ole BRum )+ a beautiful Norwegian  book of trolls
It seems a shame for them to languish on a bookcase

i have Russian relatives who left Russian Latvia in 1880.s the graves of those who immigrated from England to USA are often up to 6 years out
i think there was some discrepancyY WITH THE OLDER CHILDREN DECLARING THEY WERE BORN IN manchesteR ENGLAND WHEN actually born in jacobstadt  latvian Russia Having found birth records and school records in England and confirming  it was indeed same family them American descendents have been formed several ladies lived well into their 90's but were older than their grandchildren believed .

( apologies foe shouty capitals ..I type blidnd + coreect after  if necesssary
