The term "gypsy" has several overlapping meanings. Initially the word was used to refer to the Romani people, who first appeared in England around the beginning of the 16th century. Although in certain contexts the word is still used to describe the Romani, it also describes those in English-sp…eaking countries who live a lifestyle similar to that of the Romani, or as a translation of equivalent words in other languages.

Gypsies are a tribe of Indian people from the Punjab and Rajasthan region, who migrated to Europe a few centuries ago. The still keep the Indian culture and music alive in every country they go in their style of playing, dancing and singing. At one time it was mistakenly thought they were of Egypt…ian origin; hence the name "gypsies" which they regard as insulting. In some parts of Eastern and central Europe, Roma and only Roma were allowed to be kept, bought and sold as slaves - for example in parts of the Austrian Empire and the Balkans. Linguistic and genetic information leads scientists to believe that the origin of gypsies, or Roma (Romanies) lies in northern India and that they migrated to Europe in the late Middle Ages. ______ Gypsy is a slang word for Roma. Please click on the Related Links to read about the history and origins of the Roma. The Dom peoples of North Africa, the Middle East, and Central Asia are also referred to as 'gypsies' and may have a connection with the Roma. ______ The Gypsies, more properly known as Rom or Romani, are a group of people that emigrated from India (possibly in the modern Indian state of Rajasthanto) no earlier than the 11th century. The name is applied to other non-Rom peoples who are itinerant trades people. The name Gypsy is believed to originate as a corruption of "Egyptians" the supposed origin of the Rom. ______ In the late Middle Ages, Rroma migrated from India (as proven by the fact that their language, Rromani, is directly descended from Sanskrit). Upon their arrival in Europe, it was believed for some reason that they came from Egypt, which is where the crude exonym "Gypsy" comes from. Rroma endured centuries of persecution in Europe. The reason they were for a long time nomadic was not through any choice of their own but because of legislation that stopped them from living anywhere permanently. You might be confused by all the stereotypes out there. Bear in mind: Rroma are people. Just like you and me. Living ordinary lives in an ordinary world. Don't judge or assume before you meet, and let individual people, not racisms inherited by society, color your opinions. (MORE)
Under Nazi Germany, anyone who didn't fit into the social normality's of society was targeted and sent to concentration camps. This included Jews, homosexuals, communists, those with disabilities and gypsies. The main reason was because these groups were easy targets. They were easy to identify, wer…e a minority and unconventional within the society. It also fit in with Hitler's desire to create a Germany made up of the perfect "Aryan Race". In his eyes anyone who didn't fit this description was inferior, but at the bottom of the racial hierarchy was Jews, Black people and Gypsies. He considered them a corrupting force within society that must be destroyed. (MORE)

There are severaly different curses commonly used by gypsies, and thus many remedies. However, most can be undone with this simple scripture found in the 12th century.. First you must gut a newly born lamb, under the full moon, and capture its entrails in a bowl made of oak. Then, these must be spr…ead under the bedsheets of the cursed person for a month. In order to ward off any spirits that wish to re-enter the body, the effected person must block all possible points of entry to the body with either the feathers of a duck, or the fur of a wolf.

Gypsies or Gipsies are a traditionally nomadic people with their own unique language. They are found on every continent and they call themselves Roma. Their language, Romany, is very close to some languages from India. As a matter of fact, their genetic makeup are only found among Indians and Pakist…anis. It's believed that Gypsies originally came from NW India and then they became divided into three main tribes: the Gitanos, the Kalderash, and the Manush. In recent times, many nations have attempted to help the nomadic lifestyle of the Gypsies by making sure they go to school and/or learn some skills for work. Even today, though, a lot of Gypsies still face discrimination and poverty. In 2005, the World Bank and some eight European countries came together to offer a ten-year program to improve the lives of Gypsies worldwide. (MORE)

Gypsy & the Cat are one of the latest duo bands out of Melbourne, Australia. The guys consist of Lionel Towers and Xavier Bacash - born in Victoria. Their music is a blend of synthetic pop/rock and acoustic soft rock: much of their overall sound has abeen based around sounds of the 1970's and 1980…'s, with contemporary flavours and aspects. lthough much in their 2012 album has moved in a more reggae direction. The pair have been extremely popular as a result mainly of their Internet exposure - more particularly through MySpace [They go under "Gypsy & the Cat" specifically], and their subsequent introduction via Triple J radio station. Various Radio stations have played their music, especially their very popular, "Jona Vark" - Internet version. They released their first single in 2010, called, "Time to Wander". Their first album, Gilgamesh, sold 250,000 units by mid-2012, and they were heavily booked for concerts in Germany, northern Europe, Japan. China and Australia during 2011. Although licensing to other companies has been granted re one or two of their earlier releases, their actual first contract was with RCA in UK. Terms and conditions have not, so far, been adequately met re signing US contracts. In August 2012, they released "Sorry" from their 2 nd album due out in the future. Among their other first big Australian concert appearances, they have performed at "Splendour in the Grass" in both 2011 and 2012 (late July), in Queensland, Australia and were the feature group in Kylie Minogue's last Australia-wide tour.

Yes gypsies steal. Everyone steals stuff. I am pretty sure not all gypsies steal, but gypsies that I see at my work (its not the place where you're going to find the richest most well-off people) will steal anything they can if they get the chance. They teach their kids to steal stuff from our shop …and they are no older than 5. They are like any other race, some of them are nice some of them are a holes. It is also true that most of them (the ones I see) are illiterate. They also steal from the government by scamming welfare systems or any other government programs that are set up to help people, mostly by collecting from many different states. In my opinion I don't think they are as bad as the ones in Europe that will go out of their way to steal from you, but they will if they get the chance (MORE)
Romani. Like unicorns or leprechauns many people debate their existence. Or, they are people who steal money and are not trustworthy. Many places, like Greece or Spain, still have gypsies.
A modern Gypsy is someone who moves around alot. They often live in trailer homes. They are known to be swindlers and move because the cops are after them. This stereo type does not describe all gypsy's.
True Gypsies, such as Romany Gypsies, are not in the least offended. However, as with many words, it is the use and connotations that lend offence. In addition there is the growth of the 'politically correct' faction that feel their opinions should override everyone else. Though language is dy…namic to a certain extent, and words do take on different meanings, it remains the way in which the word is intended that is the largest factor in their use. Yes, but only some leaders of the Gypsies community (and stupid clerks of the very stupid European Union) was offended. Etymologically and historically this attitude is not normal. The Romanian word is Å£igan - probably of Greek origin. All the Romanians and many Å¢igans consider the term Rrom (for Gypsy) ridiculous and as an offence for the Romanian people. (MORE)
We can't generalise all gypsies, just like people who live in houses some of their homes will be a wreck and others will have immaculate homes.
Last night I was walking down the main road and was approached by the scum (gypsys). They asked for a reach around, which I gave them promptly; followed by a sharp patting down across the anal area. That is why i am so fond of the scum (gypsys). I offer a similar service for gay men across the… north west. my name is Sammy gwinnett if you ever need me :) (MORE)
No, Well that's what I think of cause some gypsies are like outcast they don't have a permanent home. And they go around place to place just to make a living. So yeah, they don't believe in god since they are merely just outcasts after all.

There are alot that are. Me and my fiance are. My Roma family are. Its just like everyone else that arent gypsies. Different families have different beliefs.
Curses by a gypsy is one of the myths of the Romany people. They are often deeply religious orthodox Christians, or in some cases Hindus based on their background (they all come from different countries), and curses are not a part of their religion or life style. They have been known to do fortune t…elling but it's not sure how many of them still believe in that today. Anyone can put a curse on someone by saying it but it's just superstition. It only works if you believe in it and then you create your own monster. Romanies have nothing to do with it. (MORE)
Hitler targeted them because they were almost universally hated in Europe for their criminal behavior & family lifestyle. They could be recognized by their appearance and location. In other words, it was easy to recognize and find them.

Its basically the Gypsy "attitude". A need for adventure, change, and the skills to thrive wherever you are no matter what you have. A non-blood-gypsy can still be considered a gypsy if they have "Gypsy Soul" or "spirit".
Sure there is. Gypsies (Romani) are spread all over Europe. There are every possible European person that could be part of Romani descent; Serbian Gypsies, Bulgarian Gypsies, Greek Gypsies, Turkish Gypsies, Arabic Gypsies (Domari;Middle Eastern Gypsies), Italian Gypsies, you name it.
Romanis are a culture which descended from people from India who travelled all the way across to Europe. Their way of life is basically travelling around from country to country, and they usually live in caravans.

It is impossible to gage the size because nothing else is in the picture.It could be a building (a mill).However, it is likely an appliance but it is very elaborate and appears to be well manufactured. I find nothing via internet… search. Back of cards reads....Chas Gump, Dayton Ohio (MORE)
