    Greetings from Holland

    Hello,

    I come from the Netherlands, and my Y-DNA is tested I-L22, and is of the Norse (read Swedish) type. My main interest is in the history and migrations of the Nordic people.

    Greatings,
    Walders

    Welcome here, Walders. It sounds like you'll enjoy the Germanic Origins forums here then. I look forward to contributions from you. Greets.

    Hello and welcome. Since you are Dutch, I would be interested in hearing your opinion on the Greater Netherlands:
    http://forums.skadi.net/showthread.php?t=112609

    I am also intrigued by your use of the word "Holland" in the thread title. Did you use it to refer to your region, or your country? I have often heard Dutchmen correct English speakers who spoke about 'Holland" instead of "Netherlands".

    Thank you all for your welcomes. My keywords in combination with Google brought me so often to this site. So i know i will love to exchange knowledge on this site.

    Dagna:
    You are right about the fact that Holland is not the same as the Netherlands, just like England is not the same as the United Kingdom.

    I come from the province of North Holland, which historically was West Frisia. Which must not be confused with West Lauwers Frisia, which is the current days province of Frisia.

    Holland of those days had almost the same borders as current province of South Holland.

    I replied on the Greater Netherlands:

    I heard that Hollanders themselves do not often make this distinction, because of their dominant position within the Netherlands. Is this true in your experience?

    Even many people from for example the province of Frisia call themselves Hollanders. I do not know whether the economical dominance of the western/coastal region has effect.

    People of my age and younger have little knowledge of their own history. And the generation before lost most of their memory in the 70s

    Probably lack of knowledge makes the distinction fade.
