I wanted to start a thread where members can share about their ancestry and family. I will start. According to the research I have done within my family I am a German, Polish, Irish, and Russian American. I was born in the US and I still live there. I did some research on some family surnames but I discovered that a surname can belong to one culture or another and is different for each person. My great grandfather served in the US army during World War 1 in France. My grandfather joined the US Navy in 1946. I am thinking about getting one of those ancestry DNA tests to find out more about my ancestry.
