    Swedish-American from New England

    Hello, everyone !
    My name is Annika and I'm Swedish-American, with some remote ( medieval to 18th century ) German ancestry. My ancestors lived in eastern Sweden,and I've recently learned that some branches were part of the Swedish communities of eastern Finland and Estonia. I've always been interested in the similarities/ differences among the various Germanic groups. But this interest is often met with disapproval, since so many people mistake interest in things Germanic with racist, Germanic-supremacist views akin to those espoused by Himmler, etc.. I hope that I've found a place where I can explore my interests and interact with like-minded people, without being misunderstood !

    I don't think anyone will judge you here for your interest in Germanic similarities and differences.

    Welcome.

    Welcome to Skadi Forum, Annika. Hope you like it here, looking forward to interesting posts from your end. If you have any questions, feel free to ask any time.

    As Deary has already stressed, here at Skadi we try to not indulge in the ideological squabbles between people, accepting that people from all walks of lives will take an interest in the preservation of our traditions and customs and as such welcome people with all types of viewpoints and stances of how to tackle Germanic preservation. The Libertarian finds his place just as much as the National Socialist does, the Collectivist as much as the Capitalist and the Modernist as much as the Traditionalist.

    Whatever your viewpoints may be - as long as you share our common interest in the ways of Germanics in ancestral times as well as today, you should find your niche.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    The eastern Baltic Sea region is very interesting from a Germanic perspective and there is still much that can be explored on this forum.
