    Smile Introduction

    Greetings from South Carolina, I grew up in a military family(moved around a bit), and settled here in S.C. 29 years ago. Most of my family is of German heritage. My maternal grandmother's grandmother was from Buckeburg, Schamburg-Lippe, Germany. My maternal grandfather's family was from ? Germany. My paternal grandmother's great-great-grandfather was from Oldenburg, Germany. My paternal grandfather's family came from Rouen, France. They first settled in Canada during the 1600's then to St. Louis around the early 1800's. Most of my family live around there now.

    I follow the Wiccan religion with emphasis on the Norse tradition. I am happily married, have 3 (1 adult, 2teens) children, and 1 grandchild.

    I came across this site while researching the Valknut, and other Norse symbols.

    Welcome to the forum

    Schaumburg-Lippe and Oldenburg were dynasties on the territory of the dissolved Saxon stem duchy. Ethnographically, they both remained Saxon. It would certainly be interesting to find out whether your maternal grandfather's family was from the Saxon/Phalian area as well, which according to your post does not seem to be known at present.

    Perhaps our genealogy forum can be of some use for this purpose.

    Hello, welcome to the forum.

    I too would like to know more about Wicca with a Norse emphasis as i was only aware of a celtic slant after the Farrar's moved to Ireland. I was interested in Wicca myself(the nature aspect of it) but the draw to Heathenry and that ancestry was always very sstrong so I never thought of mixing the two.
