Migration Story A
Movement from Croatia to Serbia
At some point before 506 AD your ancestors moved to Serbia. These are the events your ancestors
would have lived through in Serbia.
Between 167 BC and 780 AD, Serbia was ruled by local leaders in a period known as Roman
Serbia. The Romans arrived in 167 BC and gradually forced out the various Thracian, Dacian,
Illyrian and Celtic tribes residing in Serbia. By 75 AD they controlled west and central Serbia and
by 106 AD the whole country had been assimilated into the Roman Empire. Serbia was divided into
five regions, the most expansive being Moesia and Pannonia. In the 4th century, the emperor
allowed Goths to settle the region and in the 6th century Slavs began to arrive. People migrated
from Greece, Italy, and Hungary and across Eastern Europe to Serbia due to the Roman conquest of
Serbia and the subsequent arrival of Saxon miners from Hungary and Dacian and Slavic tribes. At
the same time, populations moved from Serbia to places like Turkey and Armenia due to the
resettlement of Slavs from the Balkans to Asia Minor by the Byzantine Empire.
Migration Story B
Ancient ancestry in Denmark
Your ancestors came from Denmark prior to 459 AD, so let’s take a look at what was going on in
Denmark up to this point:
The Danish Tribes
Between 400 BC and 101 BC, Denmark was ruled by local leaders in a period known as the Iron
Age. The early Danes relied on agriculture and animal husbandry, traded with Romans and had
some communication with the Celtic tribes of Central Europe. However, a change in the climate
challenged this agricultural system and prompted many local groups to migrate south into Germany.
At the same time, populations moved from Denmark to places like Germany and the Netherlands
and Central Europe in response to a worsening climate in Scandinavia.
The Danes Adopt Runes
Between 100 BC and 400 AD, Denmark was ruled by local leaders in a period known as the Roman
Iron Age. By the 1st century BC, the Roman Empire bordered Denmark to the south and the Roman
influence over the Danes increased, with some Danish warriors fighting in the Roman army. Around
200 AD the Danes adopted a written form called runes.
The Danish Kings and Byzantine Trade
Between 400 AD and 800 AD, Denmark was ruled by local leaders in a period known as the
Germanic Iron Age. Though the Roman Empire fell, the Danes continued to trade with the
Byzantine Empire. Danish trade began to intensify, typically consisting of pottery, glass and
ornaments and, by the 8th century, the first traders were establishing more permanent settlements.
Many smaller tribal units had formed a confederation under the hegemony of Danish kings. At the
same time, populations moved from Denmark to places like England as part of the migration of
Germanic tribes, such as the Angles and Saxons, residing in Southern Denmark, Germany and the
Netherlands, to England to fill the power vacuum left be Roman retreat.
