Imma lot Irish. Imma lot German. There really isn't much else in between unless someone in the family line deviated off to a Viking ship.
Ah. But to find your heritage! Embrace it no matter the path it took. It's history. People persevered, were persecuted, conquered, fell, got up again and you survived!
No matter how scandalous or mundane a family history could be, I find it all fascinating. I wish mine had some more mystery and scandal. I suppose some day, one of my ancestors could make up a bunch of shit about the family history just to make it more interesting and no one would know the wiser. Thank God for the internet to preserve my crazy. One thing is for sure, I am adding my two cents to that lineage and if it weren't for me, this branch would be too straight laced.
Thanks, Fargo! I know they are all saying that for taking the heat and pressure off of them. Two hundred years from now....someone is going to say..."then there was that one girl in the family."
Have a grand Saint Patty's Day, me friends!
