My father's first language was German, his father came from Bremen to the US in 1902. This paternal line, DNA tested, goes back to Carsten Svan, who is recorded in the Rostock Germany land records in 1202. Other records indicate that Carsten came to Germany from the Halland province of greater Denmark, now Sweden, probably about 1185 when the rulers of Mecklenburg and Pomerania in Germany became vassals of King Knut 6 of Denmark.
