  • How would it even be your ancestry if there were no connections? Do you mean living connections?

  • Nope. We're big on loving our heritage in this house!

    My Great Great Great Grandmother was the FIRST PERSON though Eilis Island... She was 15 and IRISH!!!! There is no bigger pride for me than my Scotts-Irish bloodline!

  • What do you mean by no connections

  • Ok here is the back story we have a debate group on facebook and the guy said that my husbands Indian blood line means nothing since his great great grandmother is dead, i was thinking other wise.

  • That's ridiculous. I guess he would tell me too that i'm not Irish since my grandmother passed away 4 years ago. *rolling my eyes*. Pay no mind to ignorant dweebs like that!

  • Well, that makes no sense. Of course his blood line means matter if everyone is dead but him...he still has that blood running through his veins. If he wants to acknowledge it, no one has the right to tell him that he shouldn't.

  • No I don't believe that.

  • Well, since you only have to have a sixteenth of native American bloodlines to qualify for the government funded scholarship money... I would say it matters alot! On average about 40,000 a year! Lol

  • Ms Gwen is right. I adore ancestry and take it very seriously

  • Well big deal about the money. Alot of people come up to me and tell me about their native roots (I'm Ojibway and look it). I think the main thing about claiming native blood was pride in having that and not trying to figure out how much money they could get. That is probably true with any discovery of unknown ancestry. That guy who said that probably doesn't have any clue about his own self. That is cool your dh discovered that.
