Sorry! I did not want to come off insulting. I am just exploring my ancestry.
Jew sure about that?
Sorry! I have just been insecure about possibly being Jewish. It is a lot of history to consider.
I am sorry about my repetitive posts about being Jewish. I have a tendency to obsess and worry about things that are important to me. There is nothing wrong with being Jewish. I treasure the Jewish people so I should be honored to possibly be one myself. It is just a lot of history to consider.
I have given my research some thought and I have decided that I may have some Jewish ancestry.
Now you can sleep at peace.
Thanks! I felt better sharing that.
I think at the heart of why I was feeling uncomfortable about being Jewish was I was afraid of being hated or targeted in some way. I now realize I need not worry about that. Times are changing and people are becoming more tolerant and accepting of each other, which is a good thing. I need not obsess and worry.
Don't worry, plenty of people still hate Jews.
I feel more confident and comfortable with my ancestry now.
I am sorry if I angered you with my repetitive posts spidergoat, I am just a very confused person some times.
It does not really matter to me what my ethnicity is. I just started posting about it and got caught up in being accurate.
I'm just messing with you my friend. Sorry if it was in bad taste.
No problem my friend!
Where I got the ideas about my ancestry was by doing online research on my last name Meyer.
So with the help of a friend on another forum I have determined there are three major branches of the Meyer family tree. There is an English branch, a German branch, and a Jewish branch. I wonder where the Meyer family tree starts?
I have discovered that the name Meyer is actually a common occupational heredity name so the different branches of the Meyer family may actually belong to different family trees altogether.
To my knowledge I belong to the German branch/tree of the Meyer family.
I think it would be cool if all variations of the Meyer family were all one family tree but the different branches may have started and evolved independent of one another.
