I'm 99.9% northern European, a 4th generation American Scot with some Irish/French Canadian thrown in and a few sprinkles of Basque and Canadian Algonquin added for effect. My ancestors go back in Scotland to the beginning of records and thus include the French, Germans, Scandanavians, Russians and Vikings. One side came over directly to the US; the other side landed in Canada and ranched there for a few hundred years. There's actually a huge cemetery in Canada just for my ancestors.

 

As for the 100% northern European (Read as Brit as we get) hubster, his people came over to America early from England and managed to be present for nearly every significant historic event. He jokes that I'm a rank amateur at being American. Smiley Happy

My family immigrated on my grandmothers side from France via Great Britain in the 1700’s.

I have a total of at least 4 paths to the DAR as both sides of my family has been here prior to the Revolution.  My father's family came from the town of Bovington in England, which is where the name Buffington came from.  Both sides of the family have connections with both Ireland and Scotland and are part of the Campbell Clan.
