I'm doing research on my family tree. My ancestors
run the gamut from American Puritans, Loyalists, Patriots, Quakers, Abolitionists, slave owners, farmers, manufacturers, merchants, politicians, etc...They came from Bermuda, St. Croix, Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland, England, Norway, Netherlands, France, Denmark, and Germany around 1607 to 1886. A majority of them were British and Dutch colonists of New England And the Hudson Valley. Some migrated to the Great Lakes region in the 19th century.
