    Who Here Is Frisian or Part Frisian?

    I saw lots of polls of the same kind here on Skadi and now I was wondering.....

    (BTW, this poll includes all Frisians, e.g Ost-Friesland, Nord Friesland, Friesland, West-Friesland, Frisians from long...long ago, etc..)

    OK, here we go.

    I'm Frisian, living in Fryslân (NL), also called Friesland.
    From my fathers side they have almost all been dairyfarmer way back, all over this province (Bouhoeke, Greidhoeke, Wâlden).

    My mothers side is also mainly Frisian (Stellingwerven, Greidhoeke), although there's also evidence that they have ancestors who came from the province Overijsel, around the beginning 19th. century, wich lays south of Friesland and is generally considered to be Saxon.

    Would you say that this woman looks stereotypically "Frisian" ?

    NY,

    Frisians consist of many phenotypes, if you want her phenotype to be classified take here to the Racial Classification part of this forum.

    Don't Meta..thing here around

    'Neder-Saksisch' is a language spoken in the easthern part of the Netherlands. The people there consider themself to be 'Saksisch' as the Frisians consider themself to be 'Fries', also a lot of cultural difference existed and some even today between the Saxon part and the Frisian part.

    It hasn't to do much with difference in phenotype, since its more about differences in language/culture and tradition.

    Not me, but my Girlfriends father is Frisian, although she is from Groningen so she really, really hates Frisians. No love loss between these two I guess.

    I am from close to Dornum, Ostfriesland.

    My immediate ancestors have all been military guys (4 generations), other than that there were a lot of sailors and farmers.

    The sailors knew all of the world but didn't know Germany 50 miles inland from the coast. None of those guys died the strawdeath. They lost their lifes in strange places like Surabaya, Indonesia the Irish Sea, Norwegian coast, Meditarreanian , the Dogger Bank and so on. They loved the sea more than their women.

    Maternal line is from Leer, Ost-Friesland, still a lot of family up there. Grandma was just driven down here during WWII and for some reason never returned home.

    Very sad, the times I've been to the sea I've felt home immediately, the air, the waves, the wind, the colors of the sky... nothing of that down here
