You're "anti-Semite" if you believe that...

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

Ireland- Co.'s Cork and Dublin and then Co's Armagh and Derry from Northern Ireland
My great-great-great grandfather Henry Kane emigrated from Co. Derry, Nor. Ireland to Canada in 1846 and then went from there to Minnesota. (He married my great-great-great grandmother, Anna Sharpe who was from Co. Dublin)
-Henry Kane (if I had a picture of my father, it would be pretty crazy to see how similar they look)
My grat-great grandfather John Clarkin emigrated from Co. Cork, Ireland in 1885 to Minnesota
My great-great-great grandfather James Walker emigrated from Scotland to Minnesota but we're not sure when. Before 1870 but probably not before 1840.
A branch or two on my mothers side is English. we've been traced back to Catherine Howard and the Duke of Norfolk. They emigrated from England to Virginia aroudn the time of the Revolutionary War. They were my earliest American ancestors.
Germany (Baden-Wurttemburg and Hesse)-
I do not know specific dates on my families emigration from Germany to America, but I do know that it was within the last few generations since my great-grandmother (who is still alive) spoke German with her parents. Coincidently enough, these German ancestors are on my mothers side and were Hessen. Hessens were notorious soldiers-for-hire and were sent over to Co. Cork to bully the Irish around...My fathers side is partly from Co. Cork
If you're curious abotu people's geneologies, I did write a blog entry about Henry Kane and his father Daniel and my Northern Irish roots and how that is related to my experience as a Muslim. I also touch a lot on Irish history in it. Here it is: http://muslimahsoapb...can-muslim.html
Wow. I wish I knew that much about my line. I know I'm part of the Jacobs line, and they immigrated during the famine, but I have a lot of questions about my family's somewhat sporadic placement and about the lineage of my Indian side. (I've been taught all my life that I'm a Seneca, but my family didn't exist in the Seneca's area until my own parents move to Buffalo. We spent many generations on Long Island and in New York City, so I keep thinking we're either Delaware, Poospatuck, or Montauk.)
