Re: What's your ancestry?
The Welsh ancestors came to the US as Quakers fleeing oppression in the 1600s and settled in Rhode Island and Pennsylvania. The English ancestors came next (around 1690s) and settled in Maryland and also in Pennsylvania (we sure loved us some Pennsylvania back in those days).
The Scots went to Canada starting in the 1700s, while the English ancestors were fighting in the Revolution. The Welsh were Quakers, so they didn't fight, although one of them got kicked out of the Quakers for being a supply wagon driver in the Continental Army.
Anyway, the Welsh were all busy being abolutionists and stuff. Meanwhile, my French and German ancestors arrived in...that's right, Pennsylvania just in time to get drafted into the Union Army. (Later they moved to Indiana, which had large populations of French and German people).
Finally, the Scottish/Canadians came here in the 1890s because they got lost. In fairness to them, the border between Manitoba and Minnesota was not clearly marked.
My sons are Scottish/English/Welsh/German/French/Swedish/Irish.
