Obama is More American Than You???

If the length of one's American ancestral line is an indication of their American citizenship, then this article will prove to be an interesting read.

I am pretty confident that my "American" ancestral lines did not begin until the early 1800's, per my Grandmother, who was raised by her Grandparents who were born and raised as slaves by their slave parents who were not born in America.

How about your American ancestral lines?




Check out the President's ancestral line below.

Interesting, isn't it?

The "birthers crowd" aren't worried about the length of O's ancestral line, just whether or not he is a natural born citizen of the good ole USofA........

Re: Obama is More American Than You???

You know,

My anscestors were Dutch Mormons on one side and English on the other.

What they cannot or do not want to say is that on my mother's side there is some kinky curly hair that keeps popping up in our anscestry.

Also, my brother, when he went into the service, had to attend a special class that was to teach the black men how to shave without getting infections, because of their extreme curly facial hair. My brother was the only white guy there. The instructors told him that just didn't happen, unless of course the happened to be one in the tree somewhere in the past!

Got an Uncle that has african features and hair, but lily white skin.

I guess in every situation there is the interesting geneological ingredients.

Who knows, maybe me and Obama are cuzzins.

Re: Obama is More American Than You???

I don't have access to my genealogy or family tree.

From what I understand, my father was of Irish and some American Indian descent.
My mother was of German and English descent.

That's really all I've ever heard and anyone that knew anything else is dead now.

That's maybe where it started, but it's not the impression that it left folks the more ludicrous the accusations became.


Whatever, I shouldn't have brought the birthers up any way.

I just think it is interesting to realize just how American President Obama is.
