I'm quite taken aback

Post  vinkel on 2016-03-24, 6:05 pm

I have been looking into my family tree these past few months, and have found some interesting things. Looking into my fathers forefathers i have found my x9 great grandfather born in Edinburgh in 1600. There is some evidence that further back my family were big land owners and a Sir is a good possibility. But my biggest find is my grandfather was born in the USA. I have seen the passenger list of the ship my great grandparents sailed out on, and have seen the passenger list of the ship they came back to England on 3 years later, but this time with 2 sons. The first being my grandfather. I am quite sure my father never knew of this, if he did know he never mentioned it, remarkable.

Great find Vinkel and just a shame your Dad is not around to learn it. I have done a similar thing but found nothing particularly interesting except most of my forefathers ended up in the NE about the time of the industrial revolution and were miners. Came from Essex, Cornwall, the Borders and Ireland.

However my Uncle did tell me that my Irish Grandad and two of the eldest boys went to American coalfields in Pennsylvania early on in the last century but when Grandad came back for the rest of the family he had another son so that plan was abandoned and the two lads came home on their own, No way was Grandma moving and that was that.
