Is someone able to find his Lithuanian grandmother’s name?

If I may modify his page a little:

Ethnicity: Lithuanian (paternal grandmother), English, German, French, Dutch, Scottish, Welsh, Manx, remote Irish

I didn’t find any Dutch though. I don’t know where that comes from.

Arthur was the son of Herbert Arthur Barlow, whose parents were English, and Clara Elizabeth Woodbury, whose mother was of Manx descent.

Ardian is 100% Albanian and looks absolutely nothing like Brandon. And neither does anyone I know. I’m seriously doubting you even have any Yugoslavian friends.

Agree, they look completely different. Brandon Flowers has a Western European phenotype, while Ardian Bujupi has a look you can find in South-East European countries as Albania, Romania, Bulgaria and even Turkey. His phenotype stands out in Western Europe for the different skull shape and facial features.

i see his face and i see my jugoslawian friends

Look at ADRIAN BUJUPI who is also of Albanian and jugoslawian descent. Could be his little brother

correction; his eyes are green

J.J. October 16, 2013 at 7:56 pm

correction; his eyes are not a greenish brown, they’re blue with brown around the pupil which combines to make a green looking iris, hence why I said his eyes are green

J.J. October 16, 2013 at 7:30 pm

correction; his eyes are green and his hair is dark brown (brunette)

andrew October 16, 2013 at 5:45 am

he’s of English descent (parents are Terry Flowers and Jean Barlow)

being Mormon that’s easy
