    I thought after finding your post that maybe I can give an insight that this is possibly very true! I have been searching my DNA Heritage and found in the middle of my N.W. European and European ancestors between the years 1295 thru 1355 going back 27 generations I have Peruvian decent!

    When I first saw this my thoughts were “What the hell!” Then I found the story of the Vikings being in South America at this time. So, I guess you could say that I am living proof that this actually happened.

    Apparently, they had made it to the area, lived, flourished and then some decided to come back to Europe with their Peruvian wives and husbands, because the next entry in my lineage is 23 generations back and my family is back in the European area.

    I would love to learn more if I can. Apparently I am a great mix of many nationalities.
