German-Irish

I'm Irish on my maternal side and German on my paternal side of the family.

My maternal grandparents came to the U.S. from Sicily in the early 1900s. My paternal great grandfather came here from Bavaria in the mid 1800s, and my paternal grandmother's family came to the shores of Lake Erie on a land grant from the King of England, then emigrated to Canada after the revolution because the new Government kept letting all those "damn foreigners" in!

Family members that have done some research tell me that our family has Scottish ancestors. I reckon one of these days I need to sit down and review their research.

English ~ Irish ~ Dutch ancestors came over on boats....While others met them at the dock.

Me? I am an American by birth, and a Southerner by the Grace of God!!

Well, are you a "Southern California" girl or a NorCal girl? You might be a Southerner too!

Oh, and I forgot to include that I"m a direct decentant of Light Horse Harry Lee, Robert E. Lee's Daddy.

French-Canadian on both sides, a small dollop of Indian which I think is the norm for that, on both sides. My paternal family came down from Quebec when my dad's older siblings were young children (he was born in New Hampshire). Mom's family migrated south to NH during her parents' generation. Have no idea who came over from France, when, or how.
