Choose 2 options. One for your mothers side and one for your fathers side. For me :

Mother side : 1600-1650
Fathers side : 1851-1899

Maternal Grandmother's:  late 1890's/early 1900's

Maternal Grandfather's:  Southerners.  Definitely around since before 1800 [there's some Cherokee blood in there too]

Paternal Grandmother's:  1880's springs to mind.

Paternal Grandfather's:  Southerners.  Definitely before 1790.  Earliest recorded: 1660's.

See you know more about your family. I been trying to find out, but I don't know how.  See my Great Grandfather would never tell anyone about where we came from so we just have to go by family trees and stuff like that. But they say our family started our in Isarel(however you spell it) and then traveled to Scottland and Irland then to American...

To the USA: Never.
To Germany: Probably B.C., except for someone from what is now Poland 5 generations back and someone from the Netherlands, like, 10 generations back (my father's mother's maiden name is Dutch though)
To Frankfurt: Father in 1974. Mother's side...er...mother's mother's side 1910, mother's father's side mostly 1870s and 80s, but in one direction lost in the mists of time.

Mom's side, probably late 1700's.  Similar for Dad's side.  There is possibly some relationship to U. S. Grant's 1868 opponent Horatio Seymour, since the name is the same and he grew up in the same part of the country, though I've never looked into it.

Mom's Side: Netherlands 1851-1900

Dad's Side: England 1601-1650 (fled to Canada 1751-1800, returning 1851-1900)  [They were on the losing side of that overenthusiastic tax protest commonly called the American Revolution.]

My maternal grandfather was born in south of France; maternal granmother's parents were from the Paris area.

My father's family first entered Caucasian history c. 1750 but was here since glaciation, c. 11,000 BC.  Various women from families that came here in the 1750's, 1760's, and 1850's, married into it during the last three centuries.

Anyone here know if their family came over the on the Mayflower? Or perhaps with John Smith and settled Jamestown? I know Migrendel says he is a member of the "Mayflower Families" as they are called. If you dont know you really should research your family as I have done. You can really find some interesting things.

To the US: never.

I'm Dutch. My family from my father's side is all Dutch as far as I know, although my grandmother's maiden name could be traced back in her familytree to a man who immigrated from what was then Germany and now Poland to Holland in the 17th or 18th century (don't know it exactly, I haven't seen the book with the family tree in years).

My family from my mother's side comes from a village only 15 kms (about 10 miles ;-) ) from the German border, and my greatgrandmother was born even closer to the border, so I wouldn't be surprised if some of my ancestors originated from Germany (or Prussia as some older people in that region still call it :-) ).

Most of my Mom's side did. I'm related to William Brewster (hence Brewster is my middle name), John Alden, and probably several others.
