Title says it all. Discuss your family History and ancestors if you so wish. I am sure one of us here has something interesting to tell. My Great-Grandfather served in the British Army in the Second World War and experienced the thrill of air-dropping behind enemy lines in France and driving a tank into a cinema accidentally. My Great (x3) Grandfather was a wealthy salt mine owner in the north of England who was also involved with the British Parliament. Only his male children inherited his fortunes, however which means none for eventual me as I am directly descended from his daughter. Another served with the East India Company in 1813, leading to me having Indian heritage. There's also an orphan from Spain, microscope producer, and lots of farmers and peasants until at least 1600.
