Lucius American Ancestry part 2 (26) RE: American Ancestry part 2 31 Mar 02

I suppose that I'm in that category that CarolC mentioned, but I'm not as interested in English history as I am in family history.

My ancestors left Norway in 866 to move to France, and left there in 1066 to move to England. My first ancestor to America was a pirate that was barred by the Queen from returning to England (well after she knighted him).

On the other side, my family came over more recently from Poland. Coal miners.

I dance a form of morris that is called English dancing, much like I speak a language that is called English. But like many immigrants to this shore, I feel that my culture is pure American.
