  1. Hi Gwen, Ethel and Jeanetta are my Great Great Grandparents. Clover and Robert Fears are my Great Grandparents. I recently became interested in my heritage and have been attempting some research. That is how I came about your site. I was wondering if you know what Country our family came from. I have a lot of France/German in my DNA but don't know what side of my family it's from. I was curious if you know those details.
