    I would be very interested if you could provide some pictures of these PA Dutch.
    Ah, very interesting. I really am trying to find a suitable picture but A) For the most part the PA Dutch don't look like this, only some. and B) The religious sects that most often have members that display this phenotype don't approve of having their pictures taken. They are very simple, down to earth people and shun modern technology of all kinds.


    I'll keep looking...

    OK, here's an absolutely horrible example of atleast one aspect of this PA Dutch look I speak of, but it's all I have found.

    Go to this link: http://hansmast.com/

    Look at Hans Mast, a devout Mennonite, on the left side of the screen.

    Now as far as dark and swarthy goes this is a bad example...he has blonde hair. But another aspect of this is definitely the odd facial look, especially the eyes. The eyes are large, very far apart, and have this droopy and tilted look. Add to this a smaller face and body than this guy and very dark eye coloring and hair and you might be able to get the feel for the look.

    It's a bad example, I think I can see it just because I know what the real thing looks like so I see it in him a little.

    Indeed, it´s common here, especially in the south of Germany.

    This reminds my of my doc. One can´t spot his pupils. Yes, he looks inscrutably like a raven.

    One could say Germany consists of all European races, are those exchnage students all from the same area?

    If these type of people are often found in Pennsylvania, that might explain Ben Franklin's quote:

    "in Europe, the Spaniards, Italians, French, Russians and Swedes, are generally of what we call a swarthy Complexion; as are the Germans also, the Saxons only excepted, who with the English, make the principal Body of White People on the Face of the Earth"

Yet skin colouring doesn't seem to vary so drastically from what I gather....

    I thought skin colouring does vary in Central and Northern Europe?
    For instance in Munich, I met two women and both were Alpinid. But one woman was dark as Oak and blue-eyed. And the other was snow white with brown eyes.

    Bridie was not speaking of individuals, but of groups.

    I have black hair, although my eyes are a dark green, hazel color. I'm also quite pale but not to the extent I've seen of some people of Scandinavian descent around here.

    This is a picture of my maternal grandmothers side of the family. I decided to use an older picture because most, if not all, surnames were of German origin.

    Sorry, for YET another post. I could not add this picture to my previous post, via attachments, hopefully a moderator could merge them. I found this picture after posting

    They're not the rule, but in my view it isn't abnormal to find such population in the Germans. For example Austrian singer Christina Stürmer has dark brown eyes. Her hair is dyed however (I think her natural haircolour is brown but she dyes it black).
