have you for example been born and raised in,lets say edinburgh with a list of origins from scotland that stems back 200 years? or did your forefathers came from another countries? where from?would be interesting to hear about it like from those of you from the US..and of course from everybody else
grandmother from the father side came from norway (so maybe, bikeubesong, we are related -LOL)
grandfather from the father side have been from berlin
with a history rooted only in berlin as far as i know-
grandmother from the mother side is from pommern which is now poland
pommern was part of us since around 1800(?) ?
after WW2 the germans had to fled since the border of germany-poland was shifted so the german population was expelled
so she went to berlin
where she met my grandfather with a history rooted berlin ONLY as far as i know- like my other grandfather
so both my mother and father were born and raised in berlin and I lived some time in my life as a child theree and always had a strong connection to he city . i had moved around a lot and never felt really homely anywhere so when things doesnt work out here in hamburg i might return to berlin...but not too soon Im afraid..money money money....
I had always a strong connection to the sea which i cant really explain....
both the "pommersche" village where my grandmother lived was by the sea as well as the norway village was by the sea also
what about you?
eh..hope origins is the correct word-i wasnt sure-mybe forefathers is more fitting
