    He can find them in Athens. Lots of Georgian people emigrated to Greece under false papers pretending to be Pontic Greeks.

    I know at least one Georgian woman in New York, our seat mate on the plane to Athens.

    Well, I know one too: she was my first nanny, via Russia, who came here with her Russian husband. Neither the marriage nor later the job worked out.That doesn't mean there are hundreds running around for him to form an opinion,.

    Plus, all I know of him is that he's from New York with a French name.

    Maybe if people put ethnicity as well as location, we'd have a better idea of the person and his or her experiences.

    Don't worry, I will eventually post on the Italian diaspora thread. But in NYC, there are literally people from everywhere. So yes, I have in fact dated a few Georgian women. And they are magnetic. But I remain a bachelor who will probably die a lonely old man

    There's more than a hundred thousand of us around northeast US. One of the biggest Georgian diasporas is around New York. heck go to Brooklyn or Queens and you'll see ton of Georgian bakeries and restaurants.

    there are few Georgians in NY city. most of them stick with Russians. I don't think there are many of them since they are not mentioned any where. I personally have known two young brothers. One was dark Gypsy like., the other one was light Nordic like. I never seen to brothers with a such racial contrast. I even asked them about that and they had the view that Georgians were once a blond nation but the long presence of Turkey in their country changed that. That's the popular view all over the Balkans that Turkey is to blame for their darkening but obviously DNA tells us that is not the case

    We tend to keep to ourselves, if you met me on the street you'd never know I wasn't a New Yorker, but every day when I walk around Manhattan I hear someone pass by speaking Georgian so we're not that few just not easy to recognize.


    It's exactly the same with me and my siblings. Actually very common in Georgia. Lots of people in the western parts trend towards Blonde, Blue/Green/Grey eyes and very light skin, especially those from the mountains.

    It's also one reason why Georgians have very hard time grasping the racial distaste based on skin color between Mediterraneans and northerners, light/dark types, because here you get vast spectrum of skin and eye colors just within the families let alone in the country.

    I don't know about historically white/dark. The theory probably comes from the fact that most of the light skinned people come from Caucasus mountains who are thought to be the oldest inhabitants of Georgia and closer you get to south the darker the skin gets. I don't know what deductions we can make based on that but that's what people believe. Also I don't believe Turks had anything to do with it. If anything there's more genetic drift from Caucasus into Anatolia rather than vice versa.


    EDIT: Actually now that I thought about it. Mountain Caucasians weren't allowed to marry someone from their or related villages so they used to go kidnap wives from all over the northern steppe... If we were originally dark skinned we might've stolen some light skinned women and gotten lighter, ... sorry about that

    mtdna map of Caucasus would be interesting actually.

    Well, let's assume there are 50,000 (100,000 in the greater Northeast) of them in the greater New York Metropolitan area. In a population of over 20 MILLION they're not going to make much of a splash.
