Hi,

I'm new in these forums. I'm Siusaidh (pseudonym), a 55 y/o woman in Upstate NY, a pagan Sagittarius. I discovered Celtic music about the same time as I met my biological mother and discovered that 99.9% of my maternal ancestry is British, Scottish, & Irish. I since created a family tree and discovered my 4x great-grandmother Hassett & family arrived in the US on March 26, 1849 after leaving Dublin during An Gorta Mort, the Great Famine. I discovered my 4x great-grandfather Johnson in Sussex, UK. And my Scottish McConnell ancestors in Berwick-on-Tweed, Stoddard ancestors who were British-Scottish, and Battersby- were they Irish or Scottish or British - or a combination?

I discovered I like Celtic music more than any other kind of music. I've been playing Mountain Dulcimer about a year and enjoy it very much. Glastonbury is on my bucket list. And the hills and lakes of the Finger Lakes tug at my heartstrings in such a way that I'm wondering if this has anything to do with a resemblance to the Scottish Highlands?

Nice to meet y'all. Blessed be! [FONT=Arial]

Welcome from Florida, I'm very impressed with how much you have dicovered about your family. After coming to the states, one of my Irish Grandmothers married a Swede whose family was originally from Germany. An Irish Greatgrandmother, born in the states, married a man from a German family. Everyone else was from Ireland. While living in Connecticut I discover I had a real knack for building stone walls & I have always collected rocks from everywhere I travel. Another thing connecting me to my ancestors is gardening. Many of the men were employed as gardeners & I am a Master Gardener. I think I inheirited these abilities right along with my cleft chin!
