Have you got Viking hands?

The Vikings allegedly brought with them a genetic defect being a contracture of the fingers. The condition exists in my family as one of the family names is Viking in origin and for centuries they lived in what was once a Danish Viking enclave in Norfolk. I wondered if Wrighty or someone could say whether the condition crops up in the Isle of Man as it too has strong links to the Viking era. I think there might also be a "toe" condition allegedly linked to Viking genetics? I give a link.
