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?

Oh & according to my grandma we are related to Jesse James but. . .she tends to overexaggerate so I have NO idea how much truth is to that.

My dad emigrated from Italy (Sicily to be exact) when he was a grown man with his parents and siblings, so I've got a bunch of Sicilians on that side.



His father was a POW during WWII held in New York and he had such wonderful things to say about the Americans who captured/guarded him that he vowed to move his family to the US someday. My father and his brothers were about the be drafted into the Italian military so my grandfather made haste and they all moved over here. That was in the 70's.



Some ancestors on my mother's side came over on the mayflower and the others shortly thereafter. A lot of English, Irish, Swiss, French, and German on that side. Amelia Earnhardt and the Wright brothers are ancestors of mine according to my grandmother.

Johann Adam Materne is my 6th great grandfather, he was among the first to settle the German Coast (new orleans) known today as Des Allemands.  The name was "americanized" to Matherne.
