The other day I was sitting at work bored to tears (damn near anyway) so I decided to hop on ancestry.com and look up where I might be coming from.
20 minutes later, with only my immediate family put in, I find nothing. I give my dad a call to get some information on my grandparents on his side of the family, we find a bunch of stuff going back to Germany in the 1800s, I expected to find that, it wasn't much. What I didn't expect to find was anything on my mom's side. She was born in Alaska just after it became a state, I didn't think much, if any, records were kept of them then.
It turns out on her side, our family actually comes from the Somerset region of England, and a shitload of Williams and James were named in that family. I doubt if this really has any relevance to anything. I just found it very cool finding things on your family that no one knew about.
I think I'm going to be checking out the place sometime in the future, Stogursey, England... sup?
(I really should write more often, maybe then it'll come out clearer and more awesome lol)
