European Ancestors – Migration Series (15) – Nordic Region

European Migration Series
© Julie Goucher, August 2022

This post is part of a series about European Migration. You can read the complete series HERE.

The next couple of posts are going to be about migration from and within the Nordic region, but what countries are reflected in this region and what is missing?

Essentially, the countries included are Iceland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland.  Faroe Islands are an archipelago of islands that are part of the Kingdom of Denmark.

Greenland does not strictly belong in this group, but hopefully this next map illustrates why you might think it should. Look how close it is to Iceland and the Faroe Islands.
