My ancestors were of German decent. My gandfather was born in Boston and my parents were born in Texas. I was born in Texas and have lived in Swiftex Village, TX, New Sweden, TX, Bartlet, TX, Temple, TX, Morgans Point, TX, Corpus Christi, TX, Houston, TX, and now reside in Dallas, TX. DW was born in Laredo, TX and was educated in Mexico City. Her ancestors were Spanish, German, and Creek Indian.

I forgot to mention that I'm an American and very proud. And I guess I'm the only Portuguese. One in, I guess that they are not camping material. Joe

My dad immigrated from Aarhus, Denmark when he was three years old with his parents and 11 siblings and settled in Geneva, NY. My mom refers to herself as All American.

I would dare say I'm the only person of Albanian heritage on IRV2 Dad 100%, my Mom was German Irish. Peggys Dad can be traced back to 14th century England his family came over in the 17th century. Her moms family are German Swedish and her great grandfather from Lichtenstein. Wow my kids a quite a mix
