On my Dad's side I'm primarily German and Irish. I don't really know anything about my German heritage, but I do know that my Irish great-grandmother was either from County Cork or County Mayo. She came to America some time in the late 1800's. I think my paternal grandmother had some French lineage. My paternal grandparents were originally from Illinois and moved out west in the 1930s, and our family has been here ever since. My mother is originally from Colombia, and came to this country with my half-sister about 33 years ago. Her lineage is Spanish and possibly some Italian. Both of them speak fluent Spanish as well as English. I speak some Spanish myself, although I'm not fluent. Where do your families hail from?
