    The Nordish Portal & The Althing

    Which of these two forums did you belong to and/or enjoy more during their time? Any particularly fond memories or unpleasant ones?

    I actually found Skadi via tNP. Was never involved in the drama there. Was also a member of the Althing during the Skadi hiatus of 2007-2008. Lots of drama. I remember Hertha, hope she is doing well.

    Who else from tNP was on The Althing? On the face of it, the forum seemed unrecognisable, so I went first to Nordfolk and then TA. If I noticed you, I would have signed up with you at the other place. Remember Aemma? Wonder where she went.

    tNP and Skadi shared a lot of common members. The tNP database, along with the Althing's, was merged with Skadi's.

    Aemma hasn't been active in fora for a long time. Her husband, Tolleson, died suddenly and unexpectedly in 2017.

    When you say the Althing you do mean Aeterntas' forum from 2007-08 and not the Apricity?

    I'm saying that I moved from SF to Skadi to tNP and Blut und Boden to Nordfolk and Stirpes, to The Apricity. I lurked at The Althing for maybe 15 minutes and Germanic Worlds for about 5 minutes. I wasn't looking for a Skadi clone; I was upset about the Thorburn/Loki split and then both of their forums going offline. WTF, right? The dramas eventually led me to Anthroscape/Anthrocivitas with Trog and ABF, where it was more about genetics and Elias baited me to get tested to prove my ethnoracial purity, as I invariably associated with Swedes and Finns and tended to speak against the same Mud-hut-istan world it was like in the vein of TA. I followed a lot of Polako's work at Gedmatch and elsewhere afterward, like Anthrogenica and Eupedia. Aside from Ancestry and Geni family trees, I got with Ancestry DNA, Living DNA, MyHeritage, Gedmatch, YourDNAPortal, MyTrueAncestry, YSEQ, YFull and DNALand. Learned all the technical data I already understood through social studies. Thank my grandparents for National Geographic back issues and Mormon genealogy in the family. I am who I said I am, only the details have become better than partly accurate speculation.

    Who from tNP joined The Althing? Aside from yourself...
