Default Whats your heritage? Tell us about your family!

Reach into you ancestors minds, as far back as you can go...
Whats your heritage?
Tell us a small story on your family, going back to the farthest: grandparents.
I am 75% Irish, and 25% Lithuanian
My story is down further.

Oh... I think we should probably give a small story to prevent this being a 3 word post marathon.

Early in the 1900's, 2 Lithuanians came to America and got Married. They had a son, Walter Stanley Kirklouscous. unfortuately, the man at Ellis Island couldn't spell Kirklouscous, so it became Kirk. Walter Kirk met Alice Macintosh, the dughter of two Irish immigrants, after a short spell in Europe, WW2, serving in the 100th division, the Sons of Bitche, after the division liberated Bitche, France. He cuaght pnumonia and came back to a beautiful girlfriend.
They had 7 children, the second oldest, Tom, lived in Crestwood growing up with his siblings. He went to Maritime College and joineed the Merchant Marines, serving on Exxon Taurus. On vacation, he met Eilleen Wynne. She was the middle of 6, and her Mother and Father both had Irish Parents. She got married.

I am the youngest of 4.

I'm a true blue dinky di Aussie. Parents are too. Now three grandparents are too, my maternal grandfather is from Yorkshire. Now here it becomes intersting...

Mothers Maternal Granparents from London, Fathers Maternal Grandparents from Devonshire and Fathers Paternal Grandparents from Lanarkshire, Scotland...

Go back even further into the Scottish side and they actually came in as Viking raiders who decided to put up shop... So yeah...

I'm :
1/4 Dutch
1/4 Scottish
1/2 English

Born Kiwi.

My parents families moved here to get away from Europe, apparently NZ sounded like a better place to be, I agree ;D.

I'm told I'm of clan McGregor, and that one of my ancestors was actually Rob Roy MacGregor (a rather famous outlaw - there is a movie "Rob Roy" IIRC, it wasnt actually all that bad :P).

Dad's side emigrated to the US hundreds of years ago from Scotland, been here a while.

My mom's side, well, my grandparent's both emigrated to Canada, had my mom, and then came to California before she had me.

So both sides of my Family come from the British Isles... I'm a 2nd generation immigrant from Canada. Have lots of aunts/uncles in Toronto.
