Would like to know if all Faorese are in essence Faorese!

It is sad how Iceland has turned out and I hope you continue to preserve your people's purity and ways!

They are not the most homogeneous state.


South Korea is one of the most ethnically homogeneous societies in the world, with more than 99% of inhabitants having Korean ethnicity. Koreans call their society 단일민족국가, Dan-il minjok guk ga, "the single race society".

North Korea and Japan are close behind.



They are not the most Nordid either, they have a strong Cro-Magnid presence.

Recent DNA analysis have revealed that Y chromosomes, tracing male descent, are 87% Scandinavian. The studies show that mitochondrial DNA, tracing female descent, is 84% Scottish / Irish.

Of the approximately 48,000 inhabitants of the Faroe Islands (16,921 private households (2004)), 98% are Danish realm citizens, meaning Faroese, Danish, or Greenlandic. By birthplace one can derive the following origins of the inhabitants: born on the Faroes 91.7%, in Denmark 5.8%, and in Greenland 0.3%. The largest group of foreigners are Icelanders comprising 0.4% of the population, followed by Norwegians and Poles, each comprising 0.2%. Altogether, on the Faroe Islands there are people from 77 different nationalities. The Faroe Islands have the highest rate of adoption in the world, despite a relatively high fertility rate of 2.6 children.

Just 48,000 people live in the Faroe Islands, including children from Ethiopia, Korea and India, who are welcomed with open arms in this remote Atlantic archipelago where adoption rates are the world's highest.

Among the newest citizens is Anna Maria, who has just turned four. Two years ago, Anna Maria was adopted from a New Delhi orphanage by two lawyers from the Faroe Islands. Her brother Ludvik, seven months older, was born in Bulgaria.

With 10 to 15 children adopted each year from Bolivia, Bulgaria, China, Ethiopia, India, South Africa, South Korea and Vietnam, the isolated and remote Faroe Islands have an unusually multiethnic population.

'In terms of appearances, it may look like a multiethnic mosaic, but these children are fully-fledged Faroese and considered as such from the day they arrive there.

'They are not immigrants or foreigners', says Anna Maria's father Heoein Poulsen.

Like the two lawyers, 60-year-old Knut Gray also believes adopting his children was the best gift ever.

One of the first islanders to adopt children from India in the 1980s, Mr Gray says he and his wife Solrun 'absolutely' wanted to have kids.

Why would they be? They are mixed Germanic and Celtic, just like Iceland, Orkneys, Shetland, Man

Alot of these islanders in the North Sea area or in between Ireland and Scotland are mostly of Norwegian and Gaelic descent so they are definitely not the most Germanic nor are they the most Nordic. Alot of Tronder types can be found in these areas as well as Borrebys this is especially the case with the anthropological situation of Iceland. I have even seen a few Strandid and Tydal looking Scottish men from areas that were supposed to be heavily influenced by the Norwegian Norse.

Well from the information on Faroe Islands I am yet to here of any "black" people and what I was meaning is are all the people there Faroese? Not like Iceland with Africans welling in.

Good point, H. Celtic-Norse does not make a purely homogenous, Nordic country. However, at least the Faroe Islands don't have a negroid and/or Moslem problem like other Celtic-Germanic or Germanic countries; good for the Faorese that no non-whites &/or Moslems have made it to the Faroe Islands--yet. Or have they? I certainly hope not.

Damn! Blacks and Asians have a foot in the door. What a shame! This contagion is spreading even to the Faroe Islands.

Why the Faroese would adopt Ethiopian, Korean, and Indian children is beyond me. The Faroese will regret welcoming them with open arms. Nothing surer. If the Faroese didn't have a problem with any sort of crime, including criminal violence and criminal sexual violence, before these interlopers got in, they will now. How long will it be before a Faroese girl is raped by an Ethiopian or even by a Korean or Indian when these children are old enough? Bad move. No one seems to learn from their own experience or the experience of other countries when it comes to importing third-world dregs into a northern European country.

The Genetic Legacy of the Gaels and Norsemen in the Faroe Islands, Iceland and the Shetland Islands.

*Samples taken from the bodies of those who died in the medieval period indicate that the percentage of Faroe Islanders with Gaelic admixture was once much higher. Migration from Denmark and Norway in recent decades has increased the Norse admixture amongst the settlers.

Hilderinc quoted this:

It would be interesting to know which Y-DNA and mtDNA haplogroups are considered Scandinavian and Scottish/Irish in this analysis.



Alot of these islanders in the North Sea area or in between Ireland and Scotland are mostly of Norwegian and Gaelic descent so they are definitely not the most Germanic nor are they the most Nordic. Alot of Tronder types can be found in these areas as well as Borrebys this is especially the case with the anthropological situation of Iceland.

What's the point here? You certainly can't mean that that the Trønder and Borreby types are not native Scandinavians, and thus Nordic? Or are we discussing which nation has got the highest frequencies of the Hallstatt Nordid phenotype? I don't think that was the intention of the thread-creator.

What kind of method was used to decide this genetic distrubution of Norse and Gaelic ancestry in these populations? Haplogroups, or some other method involving other genetic markers?
