My first known ancestor was edward scarfe (not my last name) he was born in the isle of man and was of norse descent. His son was born where north carolina is now in the 1600s. He later changed his last name. My great grandparents (grandpas parents) were third cousins my mamaws mom and papaws mom were sisters they both married descendants of edward scarfe (I had trouble finding how the husbands were related to each other) so they ended up with the same last name. My mamaw and papaw had different last names. They didnt know they were cousins til after they married. I had trouble finding more info than that. Mamaw and papaw died when I was 6. I still remember them they raised 8 kids some live in tn some in michigan. Im gonna try to find out more this stuff interests me.

My Oma spent a ton of money to have a geneologist compile our family history for us.
We got back to the 1000's with a certain King Conrad who was SUCH a douchewaffle that his own people murdered him xD

Guh-REEEAT! D:

Do you believe in the art of growing old

Do you believe that rock n roll can save your soul

Do you believe in everything you do

Cuz when you do that's when it all comes back to you

Before you think about yourself

Think of someone else

Do it for yourself

And do it for someone else

when you love someone- kid rock

It was kind of neat, actually.
My Oma  was diagnosed with breast cancer in the early 80's and her goal was to get well enough to travel back to Europe and visit all of the places of our ancestry.
...And she did just that :)

We have one on my grandmas side we add/update it every Saturday. My dads family came here well before the colonies were official. And we have ties with the knights if Templar. It just fuels my thirst for history

I wouldn't have to go back very far on my moms moms side. her mom (my great grandma) came from Hungary as a small child. her dads (my great grandpa) family came from Poland a few years before he was born. my moms dads dad has always been here and idk about his mom. i don't know anything about my dads moms family. and like I posted above my grandpas first traceable ancestors came over from the isle of man in 1600s I googled that lol and its by Ireland and it was a colony of great Britain he wa sof norse descent and I know theres irish in me so maybe his wife was irish. I wih I could find more info but I dont have the money or resources. ughhhh. I found the info on a website and it was missing alot of info. I was gonna go on ancestry.com but I dont own a credit card.
