It is very interesting to see all the places people come from and how their ancestors have traveled too to create the people we are. I am Hawaiian Caucasian. My dad family have lived in Hawaii for a long time and my mom traces her family roots to Germany. I find family history fun. I like to find out how people lived their lives. Most fascinating. I enjoined reading your comments.

No, please, you may stand, no bowing... ;-)
My last name has a germanic root. though, so odds are I come down from crazy Vikings or somesuch. Would explain the love of the sea and intolerance to heat.

I may have to leave the Frenchness to brother Richard. I might not have any, at least that I now know of.  For the first time in my life, I bothered to Google the surname Favelle, which is a name way back on my maternal side.  I just thought, not only does it look French, but I went to school with an Italian guy by the surname Favetta, so I assumed it was a cognate.  Possibly a good thing - nothing against the French or the Italians, but Favetta, I was told, means "small, flat broad bean."   Hardly the most romantic name in the world.  Anyway, I shouldn't talk, because I am descended from a convict named Bustard (he later changed it - wise man).

So Favelle is actually a very old English surname.  The site I went to to discover this called it an "unusual surname."

Oh I’m First Nations Native American all the way.
Why do we fake a smile for those we don’t know, but cry for those we love?

Interesting, because of their mom, my kids are something like 1/8 First Nation in Canada. Though I wouldnt be surprised if there was a sqaw hidden somewhere on my dad's side of the family lol
