kattilynnd My great great grandmother Anne. She was a school teacher in Roseville.
I desire to learn from those who lived before me.

belowthesmile Norman Minnesota, Spring 1944. Our maternal grandfather, Ernest Orville Sorenson with, on the left, our aunt Deanna and on the right, our Mother, Darlene. My grandfather who was of Norwegian ancestry (his Grandfather had emigrated from Stavanger Norway) enlisted into the United States Army in 1943. He left for England shortly after this photo was taken to prepare for landing in France as part of Operation Overlord set to occur 5 June, 1944. (Yes, D-Day was actually planned to happen on June 5th) Due to extremely heavy fog and rough seas in the English Channel they cancelled it till the following day, June 6, 1944. He landed on Utah beach sometime near 06:30 as a member of the U.S. Army's 4th Infantry Devision of 21,000 men. They were joined by 2,500 Army Airborne troopers. He continued fighting with the 4th Infantry from Normandy to Northern France, Rhineland, Ardennes, Alsace, and Central Europe. He died when I was 6. My mother and her sisters said he never spoke about it but did have a small collection of spent brass cartridge casings that he had picked up off the beach in France. His brother Alfred served as a fighter pilot in the U.S. Navy. Both returned home safe. I only have a few memories of him. From what I've been told he was a quiet, hardworking man. He spoke Norwegian and his English was marked by a Norwegian accent. He played the fiddle and sang, and loved his 4 daughters very much. #history #Minnesota #ancestry #WWII #USArmy #4thInfantry #dday 6h

sistasinzion If this #dnatest comes back and my genes aren't predominantly from #Africa, I'ma fall out like all the "baby mama's" on #MauryShow! I'm pretty sure @ancestry ain't ready for all my family antics! Cause, #TheYoungAndTheRestless ain't got nothing on my family history! They say when you know who you are, you know which direction to travel. Well, I'm on my way, my heart is beginning to turn !

  •   werk_it_mama Lol omg! I'm loving all these comments!!! I know it's gonna take a while, but yeah, please share your results! I did mine last year and I can't say it's 100%, but it's interesting at least ;) 6h
  •   mamaritterb this is on my to do list this year! I'm adopted and we have been blessed with 5 kiddos...3 bio and 2 adopted. I am down right curious where my bio history is from... But maybe more curious what part of Africa by baby birds ancestors originated from! 6h
  •   sistasinzion @werk_it_mama & @mamaritterb I fo'sho will let y'all know! If I'm related to somebody rich, I'm prolly just gonna pack my bags and move into their house. This is why the whole DNA thing might not be a good idea for everybody. Omgness, what if one of you ladies is my rich relative :)! How LUCKY WOULD I BE? 6h
  •   mamaritterb My friends have always joked that I am prolly black Irish. When Noah and Zion came along... Well you can see how I've started to believe that maybe I am. 6h
  •   sistasinzion @mamaritterb lol... 6h
  •   melissabastow I'm pretty sure if I did this the results would read "European Mutt" but maybe my big pointy nose genes are enough to throw me into Scandinavia or something. 6h
  •   sarahbyu1 When my dad's came back predominantly African, my sister called and said, "Sarah, I've got shocking news. Dad is black." LOL Good times. But really, he did have some shocking things pop up on there. Also, he was born on a Native American reservation and didn't have any results come back from here. So.... 3h
  •   daisyreyes.jones Love it! I took my DNA test a couple of years ago, and I'm 4% African! I knew it was in me haha. I also found a brother I never knew I had :) 18min

kimberlycarohenry I don't know about it being the "World's oldest", but it is definitely a "profession" on the 1860 U.S. Federal Census. She seems to be faring better than the grocer and the carpenter, too! #ancestry #genealogy 9h

kathryn.izgi On my mom's mom's side, we are Beeghlys all the way back to the early 1700s in the U.S., and so far tracked to 1620 in SW Germany. This is the modern headstone in Pennsylvania. I think they would not have approved of the ostentation as they were Amish. #ancestry #beeghly #amish 13h
  •   christina.l_b Quite a way back13h
  •   kathryn.izgi @christina.l_b My mother was completely against looking up ancestors when I was a kid (and curious). She is 75 now and suddenly avidly researching. It's really fun. 13h
