Hi, Daniel. I am also a lover of history, but not a professor or student of it
. I am, however, obsessed with the royal family as well as many other aspects of your country. Glad to have you here and hope to see many insights from you. Welcome!
BTW it was through my involvement in this forum that I came to know of a similarity in our cultures. I am from the United States, southern Louisiana, a Cajun. So my ancestry is a huge mixture of predominantly French-Canadian but also English, Spanish, African, and Native American. That is about as far away from the typical Swedish image that I had before joining here and doing LOTS of research. So it came as quite a surprise when I found pics of a social gathering in Sweden that looked very similar to a regular occurrence here. I don't remember now what the Swedish words were for it, but here we call it a crawfish boil. I hope you understand what I am talking about. It's nice to know that if I was on that side of the planet I could still get a little bit of "home".
