A relative of mine researched our family tree, we had a rough idea what to expect as our surname is of Irish descent. We managed to trace back to the mid 1700s where, as far as we can tell, our family originated from Lisburn, County Antrim in Northern Ireland. I've got direct family that stay there as it is, but knowing the place where we came from gave me a cool sense of pride.
As it turned out my family moved to Scotland due to the Irish potato blight and we've been here ever since.
So over to you, what's your story and where do you really come from?
