    Im Related To A German Dude Who Noone Knows Is Famous

    He was in Aferica and was the first to find a rare Aferican fish. Called an Imberi because he named it after himself. That was his last name. Thats my last name too. It means Beekeeper in German. Which is a person who collects the honey from the honeycomb and keeps bees...

    I was born here and I live here in Bavaria.

    Even if people say, they did expect anything different. Maybe I am not typical German or Bavarian. LOL. I don't like Bavarian food, I don't drink beer and I don't own a Dirndl. I don't like to go to the Oktoberfest, I don't like soccer and I'm not a neo-Nazi or racist. It's nice...

    Ancestory

    We are very traditional, tight knit family. One of the many things that draw us close, is researching our heritage. My father's family first came to America in 1740, immigrating from Prussia. There are many great stories to tell about what we've learned. He didn't really...

    It's funny how most stories in this group are  written by people who have never so much as set foot onto German grounds. Now of course I don't mind this at all, it's just an observation I've made. I mean, it's a great thing people are aware and proud of their heritage. And I'm...

    My mother used to speak German sometimes,

    since she took classes in it in High school in the 'States. My grandfathers... father, I think, came directly from Germany, in the time before World War I. I don't speak much German, though I can say some basic words and count to... 8 I think.
