    Hi There



    Hi I'm Selene. I registered here because of my interest in Germanic heritage after I found some information about the Transylvanian Saxons. My mother was Romanian of Saxon heritage however she died when I was really young so I unfortunately didn't get to know a lot about her and this heritage directly. Maybe I find some more interesting information here.

    What else... My sister and I have been raised by our father, who is English. I currently live in England, however I also love to travel. I've visited quite a few European countries and found the local cultures and customs very interesting. I guess I could call myself pan-European in the sense that I'm proud of my European roots (although some of the English don't consider themselves European, so I guess I'm in a different situation due to my dual ancestry). I support a Europe of the nations and politically I could say I'm more conservative than progressive or leftist. I don't know what else to say for now...

    Welcome to Skadi, Selene. One question, if you don't mind me asking. You mention that your mother was "Romanian of Saxon heritage". Do you mean that your mother was Romanian by nationality (aka citisenship) but Transylvanian Saxon by ethnicity, or was she also of dual heritage?

    Anyway, I hope you enjoy it here.

    Welcome.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

    Hello and welcome!
    'Well, what are you?" said the Pigeon. "I can see you're trying to invent something!" "I-I'm a little girl," said Alice, rather doubtfully. She found herself at last in a beautiful garden, among the bright flower-beds and the cool fountains.

    Sorry for the confusion. Yes, I meant my mother was Romanian by nationality but of Transylvanian Saxon ethnic background. She spoke the Saxon dialect at home as a child but her family emigrated to England. Unfortunately, I didn't get to learn it myself.

    Anyway, thank you everyone for the welcome!
