I've never really been interested in my family history before coming to America and I'm not sure why? Even after coming to America, I haven't been that interested in family history before my family came to this area. I've always been fascinated with the history of this area which goes back further than family history here. It's interesting to know what family members did and so on, but I'm just not really interested in their homes. I guess this is just home for me now regardless of how I ended up here?
Not to mention there are so many branches on the family tree. My family name is German but I'm also part Cherokee, Irish, and Scotch. And that's just what I know about.
Good luck though to anyone trying to go further back.
