    Mayflower runs in the blood

    Just was confirmed today that yes. My 10th great grandfather did come here on the Mayflower. It had long been part of our history but the research paid off and it is now Fact.
    Seems we have been here awhile. And the routes to the revolutionary war long ago documented .

    Hi cousin! Smack on the check. Who's your great, great, great, great (errrr?) grand daddy?

    We have Francis Cooke, his son (John) and Richard Warren from hub's mom's side. We have a print of an historical painting with everyone that was supposed to have been there at the first Thanksgiving, including the Indians.

    Hubs gives the same old speech all about that first Thanksgiving every Thanksgiving Day. He's so into it!

    ETA:He's also got the Sons of the Revolution membership!
    If there's no second amendment, they'll be no first amendment for very long either.

    I have to get the names from my Aunt. . It not just a madder of looking at a manifest. it a long trace of people back to to the person on the list.

    So....you come from a long line of religious-zealot, bigoted, racist, land-grabbing, Indian-killing white supremacists, eh?

    I think in today's world, if you announced your information in a 4th grade show & tell, that's what the reaction might be from the teacher.

    Congrats on finding out. I'm also interested in genealogy and that's a big deal. The furthest back we have been able to go is early 1700's here in America.

    I'm just a caucasian mutt. 1/2 proud Polock, grandparents came through ellis island. Other half quite a mixture, bohemian German came over 1830s, Swedish also 1800s, English just a little later than Smitty's 1630. Might be some other mixtures I don't know about. I won't do the DNA tests as that information should stay private
