      References! Where did you get this anecdotal information from? Your response is far too general to be of any use.

        I do not think he wrote this as a reference source.

        You shouldn’t be looking on blogs for sources anyway Karl.

    Norsemen lived in Scandinavia during the Viking age or in the Middle Ages. They spoke Old Norse and practiced a pagan religion. Should have the following text added.
    “In America, the Norse were early to convert to Christianity via influence from the eastern Mediterranean. Roman Catholic Bishops in Greenland led the movement to Catholic worship. The Catholic migration from Greenland to America at the start of the of the Little Ice Age included historians. who wrote the Maalan Aarum (Engraved Years). But the American Catholics, who spoke Norse, lost the guidance of the Catholic clergy, when Ice blocked the Pan North Atlantic waterways.
    The English exploited the situation in the 17th centuries by calling the Catholics, who spoke Nore, “Indians” and
    suppressing most Catholic and Norse information from the printing press.
    The English MYTH that Americans were savage Pagans in a pristine wilderness, was made into a firm paradigm via suppression by omission.

    My Ancestors were Scandinavian and Irish. My Maiden name is McManigal. I also have a tiny percent of middle Eastern. My first ancestors followed a chieftan called Monigol. Would that be Viking or Norse?

      Viking and Norse are the same peoples, Norse means they were primarily traders and Viking means they were warriors that possibly farmed in between raids.
