If I had access to both of my parents family trees, I imagine that we would realize we represent a hodgepodge from a lot of countries. I do know that my maternal grandmother’s parents hailed from Wales and that my paternal grandmother had roots in Scotland.
Over the last 20 years, I have felt more of an affinity with my Celtic roots – I still hope that Ireland is also a place I can say I hail from too. I adore Celtic music and plaids of course! I hope that someday I can make the trip of a lifetime to visit these places.
