I, like many other Americans, don’t know a lot about my heritage. I do know that my mother’s maternal grandparents migrated from Sweden. I believe the other side of her family traces their roots to Scotland.
On my father’s side of the family, I don’t know the history of his maternal grandparents, but I do know that his father’s family roots are with the Scots-Irish (also known as Scotch-Irish or Ulster-Irish). I know this because I had a great aunt that lived into her 90s that was very interested in family history and passed down to me what she knew.
I am not posting today to bore you with my family history. But, since it is almost time to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, I thought I would honor my Irish heritage with some free clipart. Help yourself to my Inkscape Potted Shamrock.
