finding your roots

A Child of Immigrants

Rosemary May 9, 2012

I am a product of many immigrants from over four different countries. I recently found out that my 3x great-grandmother emigrated from Japan to Mexico, and her maiden last name was European. My maternal grandmother’s side is Polish, my maternal grandfather is English. I have come to realize there are immigrant stories all around the world. You never know who is running through your blood.
