My family is from Nottinghamshire, England. My great-great-grandma got pregnant when she was 16 which back then was super frowned upon. Her family decided, when the child was born, they would ship her to America. So that’s where my great-grandma came from. My mom’s cousins went to Nottinghamshire 4 years ago to reconnect with the family and they had no idea who we were. They had absolutely no idea that they had an entire family over in America. – Haley
