I have immigrant ancestors from the following geographies:
- Great Britain
The earliest immigrant ancestors I have confirmed arrived in Massachusetts on the Swallow circa 1630-1635. If Ancestry Family Trees are correct, I have an ancestor, Thomas Clarke, who came aboard the Anna in 1623.
My maternal grandfather's family were almost deported.
My early maternal immigrant ancestors meet the definition of undocumented aliens.
Most of my paternal immigrant ancestors arrived in the US without knowing English.
I have ancestors and 3rd cousins (or closer) who are/were of the following faiths:
- Methodist Episcopalian
- Pilgrim/Puritan Separatist
- Christian Scientist
- (and possibly Choctaw)
