How can Skule Tosteson, b. 1052, be the son of Thorfinn I of Orkney, d. about 963?

He is not, but nobody have access to Torri Signar Thomsen'sd profiles to correct it.

A closer looks shows that Thorfinn I of Orkney is a giant bad merge, - even a woman named Thordis was in that stack.

I will make a try to cleanup.

Someone had managed to merge Skule Thorfinnsson and Skule Tosteson together in this profile: Skule Kongsfostre, - I don't know how far this error is going..

I guess you've cleaned up the old error, but according to my source

his dad should be tostig godwinsson.

So I guess some one needs to get rid of barth ness guy.

Tostig Godwinson, Earl of Northumbria

Was today deleted by Frank Harald Johansen

It it still possible that he was the father, even if it is doubtful if Judith of Flanders was Skules mother.
Maybe if someone with historical insight could take a look at this unmerges?

One solution could be to keep the father but set up the mother as an unknown "frilla"?

#Den Store Norske Lexikon:

Here is a translation I have done based on "Den Store Norsk Lexikon":
Godwin earl of Wessex descends from the Norwegian family House of "Krok". (see source Den Store Norske Lexikon): ..."Krok - an old Norwegian noble family that had a six bladed rose surrounded by three wings in their weapons (tinctures are not known). The family is said to derive from the English Earl Godwin of Wessex:. Godwin was the father of Toste, Earl of Northumberland, which coincided with Harald Hardrada at the Battle of Stamford Bridge 1066. Tostes sons Skule and Ketil Krok went with Olav Kyrre to Norway. ....

@Ulf Ingvar Göte Martinsson - could there be a Swedish family name by the name of "Krok"? - I'm asking because I found this article on the Internet:

So far so god.
Guess that, no I hope for that every profile shall have good dokuments for WHO THEY ARE/ DNA-testsfifth. For now Kjetil Krok is my great aunt's third great grandfather's wife's husband's 17th great grandfather. Chrissie

Kettil now shows up as my 22nd great uncle. Well, it doesn't matter. Curious though, how would we DNA test them all that far back?
