Did you have any ancestors in the United States prior to 1800?
1726, and other ancestors there to meet him.
Yes...my (adopted) mom is Native American
Take my Political Survey!!!
I know I had at least one relative who fought in the Revolutionary War, so yes.
No response from Zimwit, maybe an illegal alien.
He sure does live rent-free in your brain, eh? I’m sure your lover is just busy and didn’t see this poll, calm down.
One of my ancestors came over shortly before the War of Independence
Yep. Ancestors here very early. 1600 something or other. I have the genealogy paperwork somewhere. Don’t remember the exact date.
My grandmother on my dad’s side is a certified Daughter of the Revolution and a descendant of someone on the Mayflower.
I don’t remember how many or even who they were, but I know that one of my ancestors on my dad’s side of the family fought in the Revolutionary War. I only know that because his family researched it, and he became a member of Sons of the American Revolution.
Somewhere I have the documentation he pulled together and submitted to the SAR, which tells who that person was, how they came to the (pre)US, etc. I think it mentions some other relatives too. (I’d like to find it.)
I don’t know about any other branches of my dad’s family, or my mother’s family, but I know they were all living here before 1900. That’s as far back as I know for sure.
Almost my entire family tree
A great X grandfather was one of the first citizens in PA to sign a loyalty oath to the US after the Revolution.
My maternal relatives emigrated from Holland in the late 1800s
Nah, mine were all back in Europe at the time
Yes. I have at least one relative on my dads side who fought in the revolutionary war. My mom came here permanently in 1970.
No, mine were probably still killing Turks in Hungary.
Why yes, yes I do. I have ancestors who came over on the Mayflower, others who settled in Maryland and North Carolina and fought against the British.
No, my grandparents came here in the early 1900s.
The first instance of either side of my family reaching America occurred circa 1960s (Hawaii from New Zealand).
Not even 1900!
They came through in the teens and twenties.
As a child, I was a member of the CAR, Children of the American Revolution. One day I’ll unpack all of my mother’s boxes to find the historical records.
DAR is a very helpful organization for this. My step-mom is a member.
Yes - somewhere in the 1620s .. whenever Roger Willams came.
One of the early ones was a French Huguenot who came in 1685.
My mother has a bible given as a wedding gift to ancestors in Virginia in 1785.
On my dad's mothers side I have an aunt who traced us back to the early 1700.
1875 is when my great great grandfather came to this country.
I’m assuming because my maternal grandmother belonged to the DAR.
As do I !! 😊
My paternal grandmother was
The oldest ancestors I have records on show them in Rockbridge County Virginia circa 1750-1790
Hessian mercenaries who fought for the British and then decided to stay. Settled in Pennsylvania as in Pennsylvania Dutch.
Not that I know of. I know my Mom’s family came from Norway. I’m not as familiar with my Dad’s family. His Mom was French and his Dad was German.
Not that I know of.
I’m a first generation American!
From where? (if you don’t mind my asking)
Yes. Yes had some ancestors in the colonies. They were loyalists who fled to New Brunswick during the American Revolution.
