The family tree, bits of history, and DNA

My Family Tree (Perry - Poole)

I have always found history to be very interesting and studying my family tree has allowed me to learn more about those ancestors of mine that actually lived through much of that history. Someone else's family tree is never as interesting as your own, so this section is dedicated to members of my family who share much of this history with me.

A Little History

Many of my ancestors were Scots-Irish, Protestants from the lowlands of Scotland that moved to Northern Ireland (Ulster) in the 1600's. Many of these Ulster Scots moved on to America in the early 1700's and subsequently played a large part in the building of this nation.
