The Friday Five

Posted by Mummy Dearest on Aug-4-2002

Having flown through Friday…

1. What is your lineage? Where are your ancestors from?
My Mother’s family was Polish – from just outside of Warsaw- with traces of French and German. My Dad’s family was Irish, with an odd Alsatian thrown in ( and I mean odd).

2. Of those countries, which would you most like to visit?
I would like to go to Poland some day and see Auschwitz.

3. Which would you least like to visit? Why?
Germany, as we pass through it all of time on our way to ‘somewhere else that has sun’.

4. Do you do anything during the year to celebrate or recognize your heritage?

5. Who were the first ancestors to move to your present country (parents, grandparents, etc)?
Uh, actually me – to the Netherlands. But in my family, my mother’s parents made the big move to America. All but one of my father’s grandparents migrated to America. The one grandparent who was born in America, well, we don’t know when they ( the O’Neils) arrived- sometime well before the Civil War.
