    I'm from Texas. I have German ancestry on both my mother's and father's side (my dad visited some of his relatives in Germany when he was in the army back in the early 50s). Yes, there's alot of German ancestry here, especially in the Hill Country. New Braunfels had a German-language newspaper up until the 1970s (I think), and my son's band teacher (who is about 60) spoke more German than English when he started school. My sister-in-law's family lives in a heavily German/Czech town and they still say "dis" and "dat" for "this" and "that" even though they're 4th generation Americans :-)

    I'm what they call a Heinz 57, because I come from everywhere! But we were able to trace one of our lines back to the 800s with these counts in England, France and Germany. We also have a horse thief in our line, a witch who was burned at the stake, and a man involved in the Mountain Meadows Massacre.



    What a family!

    From what I have traced so far, a lot of German, some English and Dutch.

    Blonde hair, blue eyes and fair skinned, definitely European.

    We have no idea for a fact where are roots come from. We do know though that we are the last of my maiden name. No more around the U.S. and the very few, and I mean maybe 2, that is left are somehow related.

    We think maybe Germany.

    Here's a place to start if you ever want to find out more on your genealogy, Angel.
    There may be some free ones out there but this is the one we use.
    We're still researching ours and haven't gone out of the United States with it yet since we don't have the International version as of now. It cost more. LOL!

    My mom's maiden name is four letters and yet in researching it, it has been spelled about forty different ways. If your ancestor came here in colonial times, you need to remember that most of the clerks had very little education and a lot of times the spelling would get way off on the last names. Write down a many variations of your last name that you can think of and start checking to see if any of them match up to your family's history.

    I had a genealogy teacher who kept looking for William O. Smith (example) and she looked for years until she realized that the man's name was not William O. Smith. It was William Smith and the O was just the way he signed documents because he could not write; the clerk had written his name on either side of his mark.

    Also, if your last name is foreign, it could have been anglicized. Several of my ancestors last names were changed that way.

    yea, we thought about that, they spelled it the way it sounded, and ran with that for just a few, we still wouldn't really be able to link them to us. LOL, we'd really be messed up!

    In researching my mom's dad's family, we ended up finding dozens of people working on the same family from all over the country and a lot of them with the last name spelled differently. You have to be like a detective when researching your family history. Depending on how far back you have gotten, in colonial times, most courtships were carried out within a five mile radius. So if you hit a roadblock, check the families in that radius and then check wills, deeds, and any other documents available to see if there is a connection to your family. Sometimes this is a way to jump start your search again.

    I was born an American and I will die one. Now some of my ancestors are from different geo political units (which are arbitray and subject to change or your ancestor may even have moved there from elsewhere as well) suppossedly like he Ukraine but that has nothing to do with me. If you are not first or second generations and were born here then you too are an American.

    My mom has been looking up our genealogy for some time now, and it's so much fun learning all this.

    I'd say... you have a "potpourri" of ancestors. How cool! = )
