Just a side comment on Scandinavia and surnames

Hereditary surnames were not commonly in use before
Denmark: ca 1850
Sweden: ca 1900
Norway: 1923

So surnames can not be ised for genetic genealogy in Scandiavia (except a few rare cases)

More on the pages of the Norway project FTDNA



________________________________

Ad:to the age before surnames, roughly 1300 (23 generations). This will
sometimes occur but it should be very, very rare. Now, I am talking more
about surnames from the UK. Scandinavians didn't pass down surnames
until very late, like 1800 I believe.
