    American with Scandinavian Heritage

    Hello everyone, I found the site by accident and it looks very interesting. I am interested in studying peoples connected to my heritage which is from Sami, Norway, Finland, Scotland, France, Germany, etc. I would also like to connect with other people across the world.

    Hi. Why do you list Sami first? Is it significant ancestry? You mean these Sami people, the Mongolids?



    I don't think you'll find many Sami on this forum but there are other Scandinavians.

    Who said that?

    You need better knowledge, Sámi are just a Finno-Ugric people, with roots in Ural, Russia.

    I recently had my mitochondrial DNA run and it came back as Sami. This was a total surprise to me. I am new at researching these people.

    Btw, Welcome JanetinUSA!

    If we're being technical than sure. But most people will consider anyone with Asiatic looking faces to be Mongoloids. This includes some of the more extreme Sami, Russians, Ukrainians, et al. Even occasionally you get a few Southern Germans that look like they've inherited a fair share of their DNA from an ancient Hun.

    Hello Janet and welcome to the forum.

    I am sure you will find at least some information about your various ancestries here, including the Sami part, but mostly insofar as it relates to Germanic people, which is what this forum focuses on.
