|My name is Alice Fluegge, I am from Chicago, I have a husband Bob, and four sons and three foster children, one girl and two boys and 9 adorable grandchildren. Our family is the true melting pot of America it consists of all races and national origins. From Africa to Germany from Ireland to England and all these people landed on the shores of America in it's infancy. My husband Bob's family came here on the Mayflower and later joined together with German, Irish and Dutch to form a multicultural family unit spreading from New England to Washington State. I am the descendant of African slaves, Native Americans and English, German and Irish Slave owners their ancestors came over shortly after the Mayflower and migrated to the South. Our children have added to our mix by marrying Hispanic-American descendants. |
Twenty years ago my paternal grandfather asked me to find out about the parentage of his mother. She was a member of the Blackfeet Indian tribe and an orphan who had been raised by a white family in Cairo, IL. But he didn't stop there. He gave me the entire story of his family as he knew it. Little did I realize what a never-ending and thrill-packed journey he was sending me on. He died shortly after making that request, as have many other family members who contributed to this work in progress. But the journey keeps them close and I know that they are still helping me find my way. The information I have is from various sources. Family stories: (As much as I hear people knock family stories, I have gained a lot of verifiable information from things family members have told me.), Census Records, Cemeteries, County Courthouse records, Libraries, State records, Family published genealogies and lately the Internet. Not all is completely verified and is subject to correction. I do what's known as cluster genealogy; I have information on both my family and my husband's family included in my family is my stepfather's family that arrived to America in the late 1790's from Cornwall and England. I am now up to 4,400+ people in my family database and it keeps growing.
