Do you know where your Grandparents or Great Grandparents migrated from? If so, where did they settle? Mine came from Germany, entered Ellis Island and then scattered across the country.

My grandparents came from Germany and Croatia. It is very interesting to look up the names of your relatives on the Ellis Island website and find out the different ages and places they arrived at when they came here.

Yes, it is interesting to trace our roots and to see how brave our fore fathers were when they entered this country. Thanks for the reply.

I live in Wales, UK. My Parents are Welsh & German. My Grandparents on my mother's side were German & Dutch, my great grandparents on my grandmothers side were German & Dutch, my great great grandparents on my great grandfathers side were Dutch & Belgian :-) Confused? Try rsearching your family history... It's great fun even when confusing or frustrating.

Thanks JohnnyWales, I to have done some digging in my family tree. It does get confusing and frustrating when records were not accurately maintained. I am German, Pennsylvania Dutch and some English, not isn't that a combination! I think in dog terms, it makes me a mutt. *LOL*

Most of my ancestory comes from German descent. My one great, great, grandmother came from Poland. The German relatives emigrated to the US in the mid 1800's. We found out that we are the only family in the US with the last name that we have.

How interesting! A polish-german temper. How does that work? Atl least you have your roots traced back over 200 years, that is very good.

Mine came from Germany and Great Britain. Where the settled I have no idea but I think it was is the Northeast. That's a complete guess though.
