Scottish Ancestry anyone?

Tonight many people with Scottish ancestry have a Burn's Night Supper.

Robert Burns' Scotland


These are some of the recipes which might be used

You know, I'm like... the tiniest little bit of scottish that you might ever find in a person, lol. Mostly Croat and Irish though. Thanks for the recipe link, some of those looked pretty interesting.

I'm half Scottish but we never celebrated it when I was growing up.
My Grandad will be attending his annual Burns supper tonight and he will recite one of Burns' work.

hmmm, I'm a wee bit Campbell too. Two of my 4 greats grandparents were a Little from Belholm, Dumfries who married a Campbell in Scotland in 1762. I just have a small handful of Scots in my ancestry.

My paternal grandparents were from the Isle of Harris. My father always attended Robert Burns'festivities. I guess I should have a wee drop of scotch to celebrate tonight.

maybe not so much. Ancestry.com has this to say about the surname, Anderson;

Most anderson immigrants to the US (30802) came from Liverpool, England and Queenstown, Ireland

So I guess I have a wee bit of Irish in me, better improve my corned beef and cabbage and Irish soda bread (the bread has a way to go yet)
Thanks

I'm half Swedish and half German, but I have always wanted to visit Scotland. Hopefully I will be able to someday.
