I am inclined to agree that you are on the right track. I would do the same if I were in your shoes. Just as with the Island of Hvar off Croatia and the Casango people of Romania, and if I am correct many Scandinavians, it is possible that pockets of Huns were ensconced in the forests of Germany and have remained as relatively endogamous groups over the years. As you say, we will see. Tally ho and full speed ahead. Lets see what you find. Your perseverence is to be admired and you may yet be proven correct.
