Let's find out the ancestry of Chiefs Planet, spinning off Direckshun's thread.

This is how you self-identify so if you are an equal mix of several, go with whichever you most closely indentify.

On the other side, both of my paternal grandparents came from families that had been in America a long time. My paternal grandfather's family was originally Welsh, but I'm sure plenty else mixed in since they came here in the early 19th century. Same goes for my paternal grandmother, except her family was originally Irish.

Actually, thinking back, my grandmother met my grandfather's grandmother one time and said that she didn't speak English. She didn't know the language, but that would likely mean that at least one branch arrived in perhaps the mid-to-late 1800s. I'd forgotten about that.

My grandfather showed me a letter he received from a relative years earlier outlining it. My ancestors, who were Frasers in Scotland, fled to France during a revolt in the 1700s. It was one of them who came over during the war. I know nothing of his service; just that he survived the war and settled in Pennsylvania.

My Grandfather came over here right after the Bolshevik revolution. he started his glass company by carrying 200lb's of glass on his back and walking miles to sell it. big strong bastard, at age 77 he could still rip an apple in half with his bare hands.

Are you related to the Civellas, the Cammisanos or the Speros?

Related? No.

Met? Well...

My great, great grandfather was a Don in Sicily. His name is written in the street there and his home still exists.

My aunt (through marriage) came from the same town in the '50's and knew of him.

My grandfather was born in Palermo and came here around 1900. Some of his aunts and uncles settled in KC. Ever hear of Scimeca's Market in Independence?

Scottish on the paternal side.

When I was in elementary school, we asked my mother's dad about his ancestry for a school project. He listed just about every one of these poll options, but we're pretty certain that he was full of shit.

I have a serious question, Mr. pr_capone. I honestly don't know the answer to this. Assuming that peeps didn't spontaneously spring up in Puerto Rico from the primordial backwaters like they did elsewhere in the world, they must have come from other places and settled the island. I mean, were the original Puerto Ricans mainly South American peeps? Spanish peeps?

FAX

That is a long debated question.

The answer is that the Taino Tribe were indigenous to South America and were known for traveling all over the place.

Many words used today in the English and Spanish language are actually attributed to the Tainos and their ancestors. Mainly words such as Hurricane (Jurakan), Barbeque (Barbacoa), Canoe (Canoa), and Hammock (Jamaca).

The Tainos settled mostly in Puerto Rico and in Cuba and were constantly being attacked by neighboring tribes who happened to be cannibals called the Caribe.

They had many different G/gods and lived in a relatively peaceful society until the Spaniards came over with their gifts of syphilis and small pox. The large majority were killed off and the rest were forced to mix in with the conquering Spaniards.

There are many people who still claim the lineage and heritage of the original inhabitants, such as myself, and have even gone as far as to having their DNA tested to verify that they carry certain genes.

Thankfully I have not had to go that route and the lines on my mothers side stayed relatively pure with both my g-grandparents being 1/2 Taino as far as they knew.

You'd think that Barbeque would have been invented by the cannibal tribe.

Fascinating. Thank you very much for the education, Mr. pr_capone. I've often wondered about who, exactly, were the people who originally inhabited the islands. I'm going to have to spend some time reading up on the Taino. Frankly, I've never heard of them, I'm ashamed to say. I wonder if their culture was at all similar to the Maya or Inca. I'll study up so we can discuss this more intelligently at a future time.

Thanks again.

Do you know that when you buy a pint can of Guiness stout it only says 14.9 oz on it? the reason is that there is a law in Ireland over not taxing on the head/foam of your beer.
