    My great grand father owned insane amounts of land, which my grandfather who was a teacher began selling bit by bit to keep food on the table for the large family. At that time there usually were a few fatalities since infant mortality was a big deal but he was angry sometimes in a weird way that they all survived to adulthood. After he sold it all in about 10-15 years, they faced starvation and poverty and my father who is the eldest in the family, grew up to be a banker and took care of **** and got **** done. He acquired land over the years bit by bit and built apartments while living frugally. Now his second son is a depressed bum who is waiting for his visa while not amounting to anything of note.

    Oh so yeah, my great grand father was a kickass wheelin', dealin' landlord. I am sure there is some recorded history of **** that happened before that but I am not aware of anything.

    One of my relatives was an advisor to Neville Chamberlain. I am told he counseled him strongly against the making of a certain agreement that may or may not have been finalised in a certain part of Germany in the late 1930s.

    I did some research on our family name as a part of an uni assignment. Tracked it to around 1820. Absolutely confirmed records don't go further back than 1860 though.

    My grandpa was 87 and he died 10 years back. His father lived to 90. I guess the known history goes into the 1830s.

    I know that my great great (great?) grandparents met on a convict ship and ended up owning farmland in NSW.

    I can't remember exactly, but if it's anything like my grandparents, somewhere in the region of 8-10.

    On my mother's side of the family our original name was Jungblut (German origin), but they changed it to Youngblutt during the 2nd World War for some reason...
    My father's last name was Wilson, and I played in a cricket team once with 6 other Wilsons, none of whom I was related to, so it's a bit hard to tell. The earliest mention I can recall of a Wilson is this one:

    My surname is derived from the verb 'to sing' in my mothertongue and is apparently from a time in the 1800s when my community was governed by an age group of the same name. Apparently there was plenty to sing about in those days.

    I know one half of my mums side of the family can be traced to Llandudno in the mid 19th century and dads side to Bridlington. Must admit never tried to go further back or investigated properly.
