It initially started with my grandparents’ grandparents that came to America from the Netherlands. They came over on a ship at Ellis Island. With my dad’s side of the family, since he’s African American, his family has been here since the, I want to say, early 1800’s. But as my mom did more and more research she found out that her ancestors were slave traiters and built ships that went to West Africa which is where we think my father’s family is from. It is extremely probable that my mother’s ancestors brought my father’s ancestors to America which is real weird.
