dad's side came from Germany in the 1850's. part of the family settled on the east coast, the other part moved to Minnesota. the way my grandpa used to tell it, we actually have a civil war vet in the family, from a militia in minnesota. would've been his great grandfather i believe.

mom's side came from norway turn of last century, moved to the plains & have been plowin the dirt ever since. a few years ago, grandpa on my mom's side sold their farm to a coal mine. he joked "it may have taken 60 years but farming finally paid off"

my family came from ireland in 1650 ( less than 50 years after america's first permanent english settlement), settling on the east coast of virginia. lived within 100 miles of there ever since.

I'm Scottish by way of Ireland. As I was told, there were 7 brothers heading to the New World and they got into a fight onboard the ship. When they landed, 4 went South and 3 went North.

I think it has been determined that the inbreeding was among the royalty.

Three brothers, my grand father Jules and his brothers Joseph and Adam all settled here. They were farmers and cattlemen......Along with his own farm he was also an overseer for a sugar plantation......We still have the papers from the gov. when he registered his style of branding iron for his cattle....

As far as me and my brother can tell.

1/2 English, 1/8 Irish, 1/8 Hungarian, 1/8 German (and some tiny fraction of that is German Jew allegedly), 1/8 Romanian.

The Romanian and Hungarian side came over in the late 1800s (have their immigration papers somewhere), half of the English side has been living on both immediate sides of the Appalachians since the late 1700s (and have been coal miners since the late 1800s) the other half and the Irish part was hanging around in the Maryland eastern shore since the early 1800s.

Our last name is Anglo-Saxon English, my first name is Norman English actually.

Hey Wilshoum being 100% French means you are Celtic, Viking Norman, Germanic, Anglo, Parton, Roman and many more.
