My family were very early immigrants to the US (1600s, not far behind the Mayflower). They were also early settlers in Texas shortly after the Texas war for independence from Mexico. Prior to that everyone was in the British Isles. Mother's family was decended of Scotish nobility--don't get excited though because they were kind of the black sheep of that clan based on what we've read. My father's side of the family were blacksmiths in the eastern portion of England near Cambridge.
My mom is big into geneology and has portions of the family back 14 generations. I'm kind of like jordanB once it gets past generation 7 or 8. It's still fun to know some family history though.
