    My paternal grandparents immigrated here in the 30's from Palermo, Sicly. My mothers kin came down from Canada and moved there from Scotland (Clan Henderson).

    Lawrence is an English name, desended from Clan MacLaurin of Scotland.
    So my roots are English and Scottish on my Dad's side, German on my Mom's side..
    but my ancestors have been in America so long, I consider myself 100% Americian..I have traced my Lawrence line back to the early 1700's in America..before the USA even existed..
    I also have a bit of Seneca indian in me.
    But mainly Scottish and English..my Dad plays the pipes and is in a bagpipe band.
    The Penn-York Highlanders, "Ladies from Hell" pipe band, Athens, PA..

    (ok, now I have to tell about the name!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] )
    During WWI the Scots fought with the English..
    the Scots fought in their full military uniform, which included kilts!
    the first time the Germans saw the Scot soldiers in their kilts, they laughed at them and called them "ladies"...
    the Scots then proceded to whup them good!
    after that, the Germans called them "the ladies from hell" [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Scot (who was named with only one "t" and not two because Scotland has only one "t")

    My people are from Michigan.

    But if you go past my granparents, you get a mishmash of European roots. Scottish (clan Grant), Italian, German, Austria-Hungarian.

    Hmmm..........alot of different ones..........Irish, Norwegian, German, Ukranian, Syrian, French. Those are the main ones, but I'm sure there's some more mixed in there too [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
