Famous Members[edit]

Quotation from Talk:Irish_Traveller:

Famous members include, according to the German Wikipedia, Marx Brothers, denoted wrongly (?) as Jewish by the English Wikipedia Marx Brothers.

Third largest?[edit]

"The Yeniche .. are the third-largest population of nomadic people .. in Europe." And the Romani must be the largest. But what group comes second? I am intrigued. Maproom (talk) 22:24, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Or the Sinti (talk) 22:58, 2 August 2010 (UTC)
But the Sinti are a subgroup of the Romani. Maproom (talk) 12:00, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Showmen)... best regards (Renert, a Yenish Traveller) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:13, 9 January 2012 (UTC)


Proof for the statement "it is commonly believed that they are descended from Scottish Travellers." is missing. In continental Europe nobdy suggests they are remotely Scottish even. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2003:45:4905:A1C3:3130:E0EC:E1CA:CCC2 (talk) 18:46, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
