Your wife's aunt was a smart lady, dear Leonard. She knew what she said: "I am proud my wife is a "Lusk from RUSK",as here aunt always liked to say." Yes, you,Lusks, are from Rusk, which means you are Slavic, Russians. In Russian language nobody say "I'm Russian". We say "I'm Rusk". We, Russians, know that you, Lusks, are Slavic. You, American Lusks, still think that you are from caves which nearby Dublin... By the way, "Lusk" should be said as "Loosk". Abouit Danes everything is correct, but many of Danes are 50%n Slavic. The origin of Lusks are in Wends and Obodrites Slavic/celtic tribes. That's why Lusk surname is German, Check, Skandinavian, Scottish. The wors scot irussian means cattle, and Scottish have a very big Slavic component in their blood. Vlad.
