Where are my ancestors from? Well, quite the question - since I am such a devotee to genealogy. The following are the countries of origin I have evidence to support:
Ireland, England, Scotland, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Canada and the United States*.
*I have some ancestors which were part of the Blackfoot tribe, located in Montana-Canada.
I currently have absolutely no information about the origin of my father's last name, because they arrived in the United States before Ellis Island was constructed to keep documentation, so there is no one with my last name on record.
So far, we've found connections with Norway, Sweden, Austria, Hungary, and Belgium. There is a staggering population from Norway with surnames extremely similar to mine, by spelling and by pronunciation. So until I am capable of finding the connection between my last name, the valley where they originally settled, and manage to find some documentation - Norway is the closest country to hold my father's ancestry, as my own.
I hope to be successful, and so far I was able to find one Irish family all the way back to 820 A.D.
