    Hello

    Well it is just after 1 am here -- putting the last touches on a project and I somehow stumbled onto this site!

    My name is Megan, turned 23 last month, university student, avid reader, etc.

    So, I am drawn to this forum because my family's heritage has always been an interest. We are mostly of German descent -- the Steinmetz's married the Rudapaulers (? no idea how this is spelled now that I think about it! will have to ask my mom) then the Zettels married the Froelichs-- My father says he was always told by his father that they are from Austria, near the Bavarian border, but no one can be sure of what city -- I have read online that our last name (Zettel) originated in Bavaria. My mom also believes her family is from there as well -- I wish I could be sure!

    Also, I am not at all familiar with physical anthropology but cannot stop reading about it here -- I am so curious about classifying people -- You can look at someone and know their ancestry/subrace? Amazing. I want to learn how to do that. Both of my parents insist I "look very German" but I never understood what that actually means -- they say a square jawline is key.

    There you have it. I'm glad I found this place.

    Welcome.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.
    - Sir Richard Steele
