What a great story Claire! See what I mean about a small world? What is it they say about 6 degrees of separation? Some of us DCers could even be related!

j/k. i don't know. but her dad's surname is my own, so we're talking within 10 generations or so on average.

Yes, I suspect that bucky and I are cousins somewhere along the line.

My fraternal grandfather came here from Ireland, don't recall when, but my daddy was born in this country in 1918. My daddy's family was Irish through-and-through until he married my mother, who wasn't Irish. So my Irish heritage is pretty strong.

Irish, English and possibly Swedish on fathers side. I have been researching my ancestry for many years, but have concentrated on my father's side for the last few years. The reason that I say "possibly" Swedish is because of my family surname ending in "son", some of us assume that it is Swedish. I just cannot find anything proving that "my people" originated there. I can trace my father's side back to the 1700's but can't figure out how they got here, they just seem to have appeared out of nowhere! An interesting side note is that during my research I discovered that in this
Because Norway did not get it's independence from Sweden until 1905, your "Swedish" ancestors may have lived in Norway.

How boring my ancestory will sound compare to all of you. Both of my parents and all 4 grandparents were born in Ukraine, even though I have a polish last name. Though very rear in present form. My grandfather never heard of anybody being from Poland, his parents and grandparents are all from Ukraine too. So we do not know where the name came from. Actually thanks to Internet I found people with the same last name, not related at all, all over the world.

Both mother and father English/Irish/Scot whose folks had settled in the eastern Tennessee mountains around the Cumberland Gap - don't know how far back. Do you suppose I could be related to Dolly Parton if you go far enough back?
