When (and from where) did your people come to the United States?
The great melting pot is still cooking. Only the finest ingredients from all over the world have been added to the stock.
For me this one is easy. I am one of the still arriving. I came here in 2006 from England.
My great grandparents came from Scotland. Just tracing the family lines now
My father's side came over from Scotland, England and Wales in the early 1800s. My mother's side came from Italy in the 1890s.
Mine came here so long ago that I've never heard of records of arrival. . . .only which states that they came to Texas from, etc.
Some of my ancestors were here before the "white man" came at all. . .but I'm still about as "white" as they come.
Most of my family came down from Quebec to New England post civil war. My last relatives to arrive were from England in 1905. Trying to trace that line back as I write this.
Unfortunately, on slave ships from western Africa. When, I don't exactly know and I can't pinpoint exactly where.
My dad was British and never became a US citizen despite moving to the US. Half of my American mother's family is a mix of Danish and Irish immigrants. The other half of my mother's ancestors were from Britain and came to the new world in the 1600s.
My father came from Ireland in 1964, My mothers side is a mix of German, Irish and Cherokee
My mom is German. She met my dad while he was in the Army. She came over with him in 1968.
Hi Dex. It's pretty hard to answer a question like this when your people were horribly uprooted, enslaved and transported across an ocean to a strange land.
It was a tragedy of unspeakable proportions - but I for one, am ever grateful for the many contributions to society made by African-Americans. In every field from Education to the Arts, we have all been enriched by their work. When I said that only the finest ingredients have been added to the stock - I am certainly including those brave souls who were brought here not of their own choice.
