Five whole generations?<quoted text>
How far back does one need to go for ancestry? Heritage? Lineage?
My family has been in America for 5 generations. The further back we go, the more widespread our true ancestry is. I could say literally that my "ancestry" is from all over the world, depending on how far bak I go....
I know people in the land of my origin who have been there for over 20 generations, and they're still called "Bloody foreigners" or "Planters" or even "Sassanigh" in local disputes.
Nobody takes it seriously - but everybody remembers.
