My family is in Korea, and their history is long and boring. The only interesting thing about my family tree is that there is a shrine it that is technically mine since my mother passed. The shrine, along with other family things is in a house very far from where we actually lived and I don't ever remember going there even though my mother said I scratched my name in like everyone else. I don't remember at all.

All that old Korean shit, like pottery and swords, it's all probably not worth very much. But I do wonder if they are waiting for me(or my sister) to return, or did they break inside to give it over to someone else.

Not really sure. I wanna go back, but I don't wanna get stuck there.

Being from Louisiana I'm my moms part of the family is from Nova Scotia. My dads side is just typical Anglo Saxon. I don't think we have anyone interesting or famous in hour family tree. I'll have to be the first one.

Nah, I already know I've had slaves in my family. That's enough to make me not want to go searching.

I can trace my family back to the 1850's in Mexico.
There is very little documentation before that decade in the rural areas. I have at least 500 living family members.

I think most of our ancestors owned a slave.
There is no doubt in mind that some of my mesoamerican ancestors owned slaves.

Owned? No. Well.. Maybe. xD being mixed I've probably had family members that owned slaves and ones that were the slaves.

Um, "genealogy" is the correct spelling. But I think you mean "gist" instead of "gyst"

I've never been especially interested in my family tree and have never looked into it.

I know a bit about the genealogy of my family on both sides.

My Uncle's a college professor and did a number of tests/tracing of my Mother's family. One of the more interesting facts: the Shermans in my family first came over to the United States as Pilgrims on the Mayflower vessel. There are other interesting quirks in that family, such as a Hasidic Jewish gentleman who married a Gypsy woman in Germany and, due to the taboo nature of their marriage and the persecution from the community around them, they fled to the United States and somehow their children married into my Mother's family.

My father is a second generation American. His Grandparents on both sides came over from modern day Poland/Belarus (they think so at least, the area at the time was occupied by Tsarist Russia) by way of the United Kingdom. They lived in London apparently for a while, then came over to the United States through Ellis Island and lived in New York City/Long Island.

Somewhere at my grandmothers is some documents and assorted things that date our family back to the early 1700's.

Apparently one of my great (times however many) uncles ran a bar/brewery type place in Boston I think it was.

Yes. My looks are predominately Eastern German, and influenced by the maternal side of my family, as settlers in the 1600s. My maternal Grandpa's line traces back to MacAlisters who fled to England to escape being hanged as traitors of Robert the Bruce, hence also Irish, Scottish, and English on that side. At some point, Italy came into play, too. My paternal grandpa's side left Ireland during the Industrial Revolution. My maternal grandma's is primarily of French settlers in Canada, who eventually crossed into New York. Somewhere along the lines, my paternal side has Arabic blood, connected to the ancient Muslim Conquests. I suspect it can be traced back through my paternal grandma's side, since the Muslim forces did push as far north as southern France. My paternal side's history is more hazy, since that side doesn't seem have anyone interested in keeping up with it, unlike my Mom's side. With my older sister having married my brother-in-law, a Wichita , we now have Native American. My father remarried to my step-mom, a black woman from Brooklyn, NY, and they had my half-brother.

That's as much as I know.

EDIT; I forgot to type:

My Uncle John married into a Japanese/Indonesian family. No children between them, aside from my aunt's daughter, from a relationship prior to meeting Uncle John.

My family has followed our genealogy back to the 1200s in Scotland. There are links - although we can't confirm them - that would take us all the way back to William the Conqueror and once to him even further back. The earliest ancestor we can confirm is a crusader who returned from the Holy Land and has a stained glass window dedicated to him. https://www.badham.org.uk/web/ap-adam-history/viscissitudes-of-the-tidenham-ap-adam-window
