I've bee spending oodles of time researching my family history lately and I've got to say, it's a blast!

Has anyone else ever done any genealogical research?

Where do you think or know you're from?

I haven't done my own research but I know I have German, Irish, and Cherokee. DH has German and some Native American though he doesn't know what tribe.

I have never done any research on my own, but I know I am italian.
Seems it would be fun, though

My great uncle knows my Dads Dads side REALLY good and they are Swedish. My Dads Moms side is German. My moms side is really not known. I wouldn't know where to begin with it! DH doesn't know what he is either.

How are you going about finding yours out?

Meagan, I just started with as many names and rough dates as I could come up with. (My grandparents names, maiden names of the women, etc) Then I used a few websites to start checking for them! If you're interested, try these.

FamilySearch.org - Family History and Genealogy Records
RootsWeb.com Home Page

You can usually find death certificates, birth certificates, census reports, etc. From those you figure out the parents of your grandparents or great grandparents and keep going from there!
