http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Lane ... ngles,Well I know for a fact that my surname is Norse in origin, so I'm certainly not descended from pure Angle stock.    Im sure Trojans are from Asia Minor,modern day Turkey Hee hee. Well I know my family have lived in and around this area since the mid 17th century - a distant relative traced my family tree, I know my surname is Norse because my famous relative who's into language and dialect checked that it was.I know I'm a Trojan because I'm from Troy, although not in Asia Minor.
