On my dad's side is mosly English and some Cherokee. We have traced our ancestry back to Francis Scott Key on the English side. I think my mom's side comes from Irish heritage descent.

it seems to be the most common link with the English and Cherokee and Irish descendants

see this is what I mean how different are we across the world we may even find out that we are relatives from our ancestors so why do we fight against one another why do we segregate still. We all live in the same home and we call it Earth.

Wow we have a lot of ancestor's in common. I have more Irish and Cherokee in me than any of the others. Because my dad's Mom was almost full Cherokee and my mother is a red headed Irish through and through.

Wow, that's great. It's nice to know that you are a product of intercultures. But I must admit that I'm not quite familiar with Cherokee. Anyway, if my memory serves me right, we've been given this task as an assignment in school. Our teacher even told us that with this task, we'll be able to know ourselves more by retracing who compose our clan. Personally, there were a lot of people in my own family tree whom I don't recognize and never seen or heard of. But I believe all of them were Filipinos like me. I have to admit though that we've only did the retracing up to a certain degree. Some information were just too difficult to obtain because even my parents don't even know them. By the way, I'm from the Philippines.

I have been to Guam that is as far as i have been in that direction out of the country. I live in the U.S. was in the military so was able to visit other countries while in the active service. You are right knowing our history does help us understand who we are more. BTW!!! Cherokee is a native Indian of the U.S. Near the Carolinas region in our country. You should continue to add to your family tree for future family members to be able to search and find out who they are and know there ancestors.Good luck with your future and hope that you set a mark in history that one day your descendants can be proud of...

I know where we came from on my Mother's side, as both of my Grandparents came here from Italy. On my Father's side my uncle did all the work but it appears that our family was scattered amongst Europe, my maiden name is English, but I have ancestors in Ireland, Scotland, and Scandanavia. We also apparently were related to someone who came here on the Mayflower. I am also distantly related to President's Jackson and Hayes.

what is so amazing about looking into your ancestors is how did they meet and why? If you look at some of the cultures that makes our family tree you will see countries that fought against each other but some how our ancestors met and created a family. So if you think about all the different cultures that makes up most of us from past generations, we are all not that different after all.
