Week 3: Roots

Do you know if your family name was changed when your ancestors originally came to this country? Did they change it later on for some reason? What reason? What were the names of your first family members to settle in this country? Where did they settle? What was their business, trade, or profession? What brought your original family members to this country? What professions did they bring with them? What language did your ancestors speak? Where exactly did they come from? If there is anything else you would like to tell me about your ancestors, please go ahead and write it in now.

Are you aware of a family crest? Do you have a copy of it? Tell me about the origin of this crest. Where is it kept?
