Where did it start?
Let's start with my mother side of the family.
My family has an unique story of coming to America. My mother side goes back to 1600's. My famous ancestors start with the first drummer boy for President Washington. I had ancestors who fought in the Revolutionary War. Another family member was one of the first Senators in the US history. We also are related to General Burnsides from the Civil War. The history of my mother side continues on and leads them to California. One of our ancestors took the long way to get to America. Grandpa Bird (as he was known in our family) was a white slave and traveled from Europe to San Fransisco, California. During his travel, his master died and upon his arrive they found out that they were free. Everyone on this boat took ownership of San Fransisco or surrounding areas. My ancestor took ownership of Napa Valley. Since then, I had tons of famous relatives and relatives that have made an impact on the world.
Now let's go to my father side.
My father side is a mystery. The Alamo last name only goes back four generations. My great grandfather came from Chile in the early 1900's. Upon arrival to the United States in New York, my great grandfather jumped ship. By this term of jumping ship, I mean when he came to America he changed his last name. This meant all of his history is a total mystery. My grandfather can remember that his father was afraid someone was after him. My great grandmother came from Puerto Rico and had six kids with my great grandfather. After having six kids, my great grandfather left his family because he thought someone was getting to close. He left and went to Florida and created another family. My great grandmother died at a young age and all the children were placed in an orphanage, this includes my grandfather.
