I can track family back to the late 1800's from my mom's side. I can join the Daughters of the Revolution with the family tree that my Aunt put together a few years ago. And on my Dad's side it's a bit harder, as he was 1/2 Cherokee Indian, the records are not as easy to track down. And since he is deceased, as is most of that side of the family, it's even harder to find anything.

I don't ride, I cook!

My grandfather was really into that stuff. I have family that came over on the Mayflower and signed the Mayflower pact. Not sure how far back he went on the other side of the pond though.
My dad's side, I have no idea.

I have relatives that have looked into this. Supposedly 1200's on my dad's side, and we have a book on my mom's side with pics going back to the 1700's.

It is far better to be thought of as a smartass than an dumbass. And as American Humorist Robert Benchley (1889-1945) noted, "no matter how well-intended, any reply to a dumbass question will inevitably appear smartassed". - Bob Hall (creator of the Miata)

My mom's side would be easy to go back pretty far with. My dad's...not so much. I don't know shit about my dad's side...they're so fucked up. Random children with strangers all over the place in that tree. I remember i had to make one for school and go 3 generations back from mine. My dad got so pissed talking about it that he told me to say he didn't have family

On my mom's side, I can trace back to the 1600s with some ease. Whole lotta whiteness and drunks.
My dad's is completely different; there's next to no information available and a language barrier. He's also pretty reticent about it, and almost never talks about El Salvador.

I have my family tree traced back to Thomas Hills of Essex, England, born in 1519 and came to America; lived and died in Connecticut. Married Jane Scarborrow, also of Essex. Not sure what our family did in England before Thomas.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I researched mine. Bonified and documented to the late 1600s here in the US. Port Tobacco, Maryland. Lots of southern 'Confederate' family history. Mobley/Martin/Hatcher. Very interesting, especially when you come across copies of Last Will and Testaments and old ship passenger lists with signatures. It kinda makes people and things real, more than just what is written in a text book.

Chicks dig guys with hippohands on their sportbikes.

The details of my life are quite inconsequential, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink, he would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Some times he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy, the sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical, summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds, pretty standard really. At the age of 12 I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen, a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum, it's breathtaking, I suggest you try it.
