Yes. I do believe, however, none of my GREAT grandparents were.

Paternal Grandpa came here from Spain (Basque), who met and married my paternal Grandma in the U.S., emigrating here from Mongolia, China.
My Maternal Grandfather came here from Japan, who then married the only one of my Grandparents who was actually born here in the states, a Cherokee/Choctaw woman. RICH!!!

Nope. They were immigrants. My mom too.

Yes. My grandmother was actually born in a farmhouse literally less than a mile or two from the US-Canada border.

Yes for 3, but no for 1. He was born in Oklahoma Territory before it became a state.

That’s a good catch! I wonder how many others are assuming modern-day US territory.

As far as I know, yes. If anyone wasn’t, my guess is that it was my paternal grandfather.

All of my great-grandparents in fact. It starts to diverge before that generation though.

Yes. I have no idea about going back much farther than great grandparents. I know nothing about the family before that

The only ancestor branch I’ve found that didn’t come here 300 years ago or more is that if my paternal grandmother. Her parents came from Ireland in the 1800s.

Only one of mine was born here

Yes, but they were mostly 2nd generation immigrants. My paternal grandparents were both 100% Hungarian, born and raised in an ethnic Hungarian neighborhood. They spoke perfect English, but also perfect Hungarian.

One of my maternal great grandparents immigrated from Serbia. There are questions and ambiguities about others on my mom's side, which is where the traces of my German and Norwegian blood come from.

Growing up, my dad had three Uncle Zoltans. It doesn't get any more Hungarian than that πŸ˜‚.

If you want to talk great-grandparents, on my dad's side, my grandfather's parents were born in Poland. My grandmother was a member of the DAR, well, you know. Lol
