This new topic is to share with readers certain aspects of the Nordic history culture and arts.
Based on  the topic titled "An Ancient Dual-Lineage of Sheets Surname?"
from what Dracunberg shared regarding the Skeid, Shoot-ers ethno-technical-associative surname development.

I like to share I have an academic & leisure background in Social Sciences, History, along with involvement with recreating history based upon historical artifacts or documents. So, with this in mind; here is some info regarding the quasi namesake Sheets-Shoot-Skied artifact later in the message to a group of people who recreated a modern day Skeid.

About the 5 ships in Denmark on display at the museum
Vikings: Secrets of the Vikings: The Viking Longship Video  time 6:48 min

website for Viking long ship classes

"The Viking longship from Skuldelev aka.
Skuldelev wreck 2 Denmark
The longship was the warship of the viking age.
Site of find Skuldelev strait, the Roskilde fjord, Denmark.

Materials: oak on oak
Length: 30 m
Width: 3,8 m
Draught: 0,9 m
Deplacement: 25 tons
Sail area: ca 120 m2
Pairs of oars: 30
Crew: 70 - 80 men, of those 60 rowers
Cruising speed: 6 - 8 knots
Max. speed: about 15 knots
The ship is built around 1042 AD
Building site: Glendalough, close to Dublin, Ireland.

A full scale replica was built at the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde. It was sea launched in 2004, and named "Havhingsten fra Glendalough" or the "Sea Stallion" after its place of origin in Ireland. In 2007 the Sea Stallion sailed to Ireland, and returned to Denmark in the next summer."

The following link is to a Modern skeid history recreation construction at facebook. based upon the above artifact find of the ship's within the Denmark Ship museum. the group obtained funds, recreated the designs, built, tested, and then sailed the "Sea Stallion" Skeid for 6 long weeks in foul wet weather from Denmark to Ireland, a total of 1200 nautical miles.  There are quite a few wonderful videos & photos of their adventures within the Skeid to various ports & sites.

I can not import these videos or photos at this time. Yet, I encourage all to see what a true Skeid looks like and handles at sea. Enjoy

Another video of the Sea Stallion Skeid under sail at sea

A 54-strong 'Viking Navy' led by a University of Nottingham scientist and Viking expert has just returned from an unusual expedition to Norway, to row the largest replica Viking longship ever built.

Thank you for sharing your research & insightful efforts, it was a pleasure to read.

I will write a related topic "I1-Nordic Socio-History Culture & Arts", so as not to side track/derail this topic

Hi reader,
Sometimes, when the paper trail ends or a brick wall exists, genetic genealogy can help advance in locating other people to help share and collaborate. For me, that is my experience of how I arrived to share at this forum.

Helpful hint some people make the distinction in slang  as "Gene-alogy" and also in intonation.

I will share some Genetic Genealogy Information beyond the basic Y-DNA Haplogroups and paired pedigrees. This of course requires a person "Kit's full genetic sequence test raw data results"

Certain advances have been made in the field of Gene-alogy since 2006 onward.

So I will share a few links to Information, Blogs, Genetics Libraries and more within this topic-thread.

a Blog shared by the Genetic Genealogists (Tool Box) snip excerpt
"In addition to the information you received from 23andMe, Family Tree DNA, or AncestryDNA about your ancestry, there is a wealth of additional information still within in your DNA.  Below (in alphabetical order) are some of the most popular and well-known tools for wringing every last bit of information out of your raw data, and maximizing the cost of your DNA test."

About the Genetic Genealogist site:
The Genetic Genealogist examines the intersection of traditional genealogical techniques and modern genetic research. The blog also explores the latest news and developments in the related field of personal genomics.

Additionally, there is a site for newbies to learn complete with terms, concepts, graphs and more to learn at the educational non profit, International Society of Genetic Genealogy

Next are ISOGG Autosomnal DNA tools
There are a number of autosomal DNA tools which can be used on your match data or raw data from a 23andMe, AncestryDNA or Family Tree DNA Family Finder test.
