How we all got here...

So far my info is leading me to believe that the West came from Ireland. Info is hard to come by and I am having a hard time proving most of my beliefs . So when I get new info I will get it here asap !!! I believe we had a name change and that makes it most difficult to trace. Also I believe we have some Indian and that is also hard to prove. But I will not be discouraged !!!
