    Describe The History Of Your Family

    My grand parents both came to the United States in the early 1930's.

    My grandfather was from Linz Austria.

    My grandmother came from the surrounding villages of Glasgow Scotland.

    My grandfather was a machinist for a reputable company and my grandmother was a stay at home wife who later became a seamtress.

    My grandparents had three daughters and one son.

    What's interesting is that one of the daughters of which was one of my aunts died in a car accident where the son of which was a uncle of mine died in a mysterious plane accident along with his son to where there is some speculation in the circumstances how his plane went down because he supported the early United States communist party ironicly.

    My mother's sister married a Polish man where that part of my extended family for all intents or purposes is Polish where she had three sons and one daughter all of which had a Polish upbringing.

    I am a single child of my mother where both me and her are the last Anglo Saxon or Germanic bloodline remnants left of my family.

    My grandfather died in 2002 where my grandmother died in 2006 both of them buried in a Catholic cemetery.

    What is more interesting is that I grew up largely as a orphan because my real biological family is less than ideal in that there is a sort of broken family there unfortunately where I had minimal contact with my mother where I grew up in the southwest where eventually after going through many horrors as a orphan I was adopted by a single man that was a admixture of German, Irish, and Italian of which is the typical admixture of some long existing families within the United States especially in the southern portion of the country. It was only until a year ago that I reunited with my real biological family minus the fact that I've stayed in contact with my mother all these years.

    As for my adopted father that raised me I consider him as natural family even if he isn't my biological father.

    My biological father on the otherhand regrettably didn't stay very long where I'm a bastard child if you wish to describe it but what is good to know is that he was one Scottish Richardson which is about the only closure I know about the man.

    Why do I feel more close to my Scottish and English ancestory over my Austrian one?

    Well for one I don't speak German or Austrian where I had a very Anglo Saxon upbringing where I grew up reminiscing about medieval Scotland and England as a boy even when I wasn't racially and culturally conscious as I find myself to be today.

    Then there is the fact that my grandmother was Scottish and my biological father was a Scot as well even though my grandfather was Austrian all reasons of which I identify predominantly to be Scottish.
    National Socialism is the only salvation for Germanics and Europids everywhere. Capitalism, libertarianism, and communism is the enemy.

    National socialized collectivism must prevail over radical individualism.

    My paternal great grandfather died in WWII before my grandfather could ever meet him, a Liverpool lad of north Lancastrian heritage with family across the north west he was born the son of a pregnant evacuee, my great grandfather's wife, in north Wales where he was raised up to the age of 5 before moving back to England and fathering my father to an English woman, my grandmother, of partial Irish ancestry.

    My maternal great grandfather was raised on the coast, a life guard and fisher he fathered my grandfather, a man who too grew close to the sea having traveled the world from the age of 16 in the merchant navy, he met my grandmother when working on the docks of Liverpool, an English woman of borderlands ancestry, they settled down and had my mother.

    My ancestry is hard to grasp because I have hundreds who immigrated here.

    The Major Groups are:
    1) First ones to come were on the Mayflower fleeing religious persecution.
    2) Next group was English during the 1600's to the southern US.
    3) Next group was French Huguenots fleeing religious persecution, and Dutch that came to New Amsterdam (aka New York City) in the 1600's.
    4) Next group was the Irish fleeing the potato famine.
    6) Next group was German and came to Philadelphia (1700's) because of poverty in Prussia and Bavaria.
    7) Few French to New France.
    8) A group from Stuttgart came over during the Napoleon times because of poverty.
    9) I have a Spanish explorer (not a big name one but he is in history books) in my family from the late 1700's.
    10) The last immigrant in my family that came to America was a man in the 1850's from Liverpool.

    War Vets
    -I have something like 30 revolutionary war ancestors (directly descendant from) most lived through the war.
    -12 Civil war direct ancestors (g-g-g /or g-g-g-g grandfathers) (or around 25 if you include siblings) all but one were confederate and quite a few died in the war.

    I love talking about myself.

    -My great great great opa owned a castle in the Netherlands (which is now a museum) he knocked up a girl who he wasn't yet married to, died jousting?! before his bastard son was born. The son later lived in the castle, also became a ship captain and a raging alcoholic. In this castle there is paintings of a woman with the same name (first and middle) as my mom, greatoma, cousins, ect
    -Another great great opa was an architect in Amsterdam, my mom claims to know which structures were designed by him.
    -My maternal great opa was a protestant minister (in rotterdam, I think) He spent most of his career working with a Psychiatric hospital. During WW2 my oma had to sneak lots of papers around for her dad.. Then the Germans came to the house one day and he went to prison for 6+ months. Afterwards he was withdrawn and depressed for the rest of his life. Last weekend I asked my Oma if her dad had a middle name, "Aarie, its an old family name" ..last time I checked that was the most jewish name ever, isn't it? Also, my Oma has jewish things all over her house, a big nose, and a jewish first name. She still claims to not be a jew?
    -Maternal pake/opa was born on a hay farm in freisland (which is exactly what his last name was, so it seems they have done this for a long time) He said that the Germans came to their farm and took one of his older brothers and put him on the train, which he jumped off of and got away(?) Pake moved to ontario Canada when he was 20, but soon moved to northern bc (he says ontario looks like holland and at the time was filled with dutch people, ew), where he lived alone with his dog in the middle of nowhere for 10 years.
    -All I know about my dads parents is that they both moved to canada seperatley from the netherlands in the early 50's, they both had dutch last names. Had 5 kids. They are scum.
    -Both sets of grandparents met at CRC's in bc, as did my parents.

    A few of my ancestors arrived on the Mayflower. One was an original settler of New Amsterdam. Several arrived in the "Great Migration". Many went to 17th century Virginia & Maryland, others to the Delaware Valley with William Penn. There were a few at New Sweden. A Swiss miss who's family settled on the banks of the Potomac, she married a German Soldier (who fought for Britain in the Revolutionary War) from Ansbach. A Scottish family that arrived shortly after the Revolutionary War. All of these were before 1800. And lastly the Germans from the Rhine Province of Prussia & Wurttemburg who arrived in 1843 & 1852 respectively.

    I don't identify with Ellis Island & the "immigrants made this country" myth as most of my ancestors who came to America were not immigrants but settlers, who were moving from one part of the British Empire to another.

    My paternal line came from Boston, England, to Boston, Massachusetts, in 1630. I also have ancestors from Northwest Germany and Böhmen, who came to America sometime around 1700-1800. Also during this time my Norwegian ancestors arrived. (probably sometime later after the Germans)

    I don't really know too much more about my ancestry, but I research and learn more every day.

    Yes, definately. Most of our Germanic ancestors helped forge the country, not just move into it to reap the benifits of something that someone had already made for them.

    Interesting, could you tell me his name?

    Aarie is just a short form of Adrian in Dutch, nothing particularly Jewish about it as far as I know.

    Also, my Oma has jewish things all over her house, a big nose, and a jewish first name. She still claims to not be a jew?
    Not everyone with a big nose is Jewish. I don't know what you consider a Jewish first name, but lots of Old Testament names are regularly used, particularly in protestant families. And having 'Jewish things' around doesn't prove anything about genealogy either. But what do I know.

    -Both sets of grandparents met at CRC's in bc, as did my parents.
    Could you enlighten me as to what CRC's are for?

    Well, I don't know, but I see no reason why you should think you are.

    About Streefkerk I found this: http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/L._Streefkerk

    Not much, but at least an architect by that name existed, and the supposed year of birth 1854 means it could be your great great grandfather.

    I like it how you use 'opa', 'oma', 'pake' and such, in a seemingly natural way.

    As far as my own family history is concerned, in a nutshell: my father's line is Frisian. They were once noble farmers in the Wâlden area, but lost the noble status and thus the estate because the last of them got only a bastard son (what a pity). My mother's line is more generally Dutch. I prefer the Frisian part to the Dutch, because Frisia actually has a history to take seriously, dating back to Roman times, while The Netherlands are pretty much a 'modern' invention, with a history invented to suit it.
