Wow!

Very cool. I found one family thread that went back to pre-Revolution, coming from Sheffield, England. And recently a few that came from Ireland around the 1700s. And the Italians I think my aunt and mom traced back to the 1500 or 1600s. But there are a lot of threads missing. Haven’t been able to trace the others yet.

Is this a relative to the one who fought with George Washington? (I might be remembering that wrong…didn’t you have a family member who fought under Washington or something?)

mrcreed is.

yes thats the one

his name was samuel. he married rosanna. rosanna is the line that i traced back to scotland..the macqueens =)
went as far as finlay macqueen,who i googled and found some really cool stuff!
one of these days i need to actually pay for the big time la-tee-da membership so i can really do some research into this stuff.

I have to have the la-tee-da membership

to find out more about the ones who came from Ireland, too. Maybe I could find more about the Scots and the ones from Sheffield if I did that. Sadly, my paternal grandfather’s side of the family wasn’t very tight, so there’s a lot of family history there that might be lost for me. That includes the Scots/ScotIrish and the other side of the Irish. I have only been able to trace back on my grandmother’s side.

It’s interesting to talk about this stuff with TripleB. He and his dad traced their family history, but because he is black with a family history that goes back to American slavery, the trail goes cold for him in the late 1800s. :-/ I asked him if he would ever be interested in DNA testing to at least learn whereabouts his family originally came from (like on that show Who Do You Think You Are?), but he isn’t.

Absnasm is mostly elsewhere.

Sheffield?

Yay Yorkshire! I knew there was a reason you were awesome. You are a Yorkshirewoman at heart.

I never realized

that Sheffield was in Yorkshire! (For some reason I thought it was further west…) Well, no wonder ZH liked it there so much…he’s got Yorkshire on his dad’s side and mine! :-D
