Who were your ancestors?

Posted by   + Show Post

  My ancestors were Nazis on my father's side.  On my mother's side they were English peasants.  I take after my dad's side in almost everything from personality to physical appearance.  I'm not a Nazi though, and I'm certainly not racist (anymore). 

  One of my favorite memories is when I was in 3rd grade I had a black "boyfriend" and he came home with me one day on the bus.  My parents were freaked!  So who are your ancestors?

I have a Fawkes mask for when I counter protest WBC!  Many people see him as a hero

Quoting prettymomma1204:

my Dad's side is mostly Swedish and on my Mom's side we are related to S. Fawks. He was hanged for trying to blow up the House of Parlament in England.

Spanish Basque on my dad's side, Irish and German on my moms. Nothing too interesting, although my great great great grandfathers fought against each other in the civil war (give or take a great or two.)

 On my Dad's side, his father's parents were German immigrants, his mother's side Irish immigrant's & 1st generation Americans. So Dad was 2nd gen German & 3rd gen Irish.  Mom's side was a real mix. Mom's mom was 100% Dutch that had migrated from Pennsylvania to the midwest, Mom's Dad was French & English. On Mom's side I am not sure how long any were here. There were stories that the French in my family was from the French/ Indian fur traders from the Great Lakes area of the midwest. (Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois)

I wish I knew more about my ancestors. I know we came from Ireland and Germany. My great grandfather was Cherokee. . .other than that I don't know that much. I guess my great grandfather on my father's side invented some tools or something but I don't know what. I need to start digging into it. My aunt was working on it but passed away before she finished.
