For me, it would be the other way around. One of my great grandmothers had four siblings, who ended up emigrating to America (just like many Swedish people did back then). And as far I know right now, they all went to the Seattle, Washington area. So I guess that my personal journey would be going to Seattle and start my search for my distant cousins from there.

I find it interesting that so many Americans have such a mixed baxkground. And I also have to marvel at all the people from Europe, who were so brave that they would cross an entire ocean to get to America (and they did this before travelling from one continent to another was as easy as it is today). One of my grandfathers was offered ot join some friends on their journey over to America, but he didn't have the courage to follow them. And if he had gone and never returned, my mother would not have been born, and neither would I. And such a thought can boggle your mind.

Furienna, it would be so cool if you were able to locate some of those relatives in the Washington State area and come visit here! !

You are so fluent in English, it would be very cool for you to meet long lost relatives that migrated over here!

Would anyone go to Europe now, given all of the Syrian migration problems?

I just got back from a two week trip to Europe. I went to Paris, Berlin, Prague and Amsterdam and did not encounter any problems. So yes, I would absolutely return.

Yeah, I really don't think that you will find much problems around the big tourist attractions. Most of the refugees will end up far away from them.

I just can't be on an airplane for that long of time it would take to get there. If Europe were closer, I'd go in a minute!!!

Then again, a journey to America these days only takes nine hours with airplane. But it could take nine weeks for your ancestors, when they went there on their ships.

I have a mixed bag with European blood. I'm certain that I'm 12.5% Italian, 12.5% or more Dutch, 25% give or take German (The actual 25% might be Polish/Slavic since It's Eastern German), 12.5% British Isles (British, Irish, and Welsh...perhaps Scottish). I'm also Scandinavian...I may go and get a DNA test...I may have other types of ancestry.

I've been told that I share the same blood-line as Nelson A. Miles and Sherman Miles.
