I have been laboring under the impression that I was of Welsh descent all my life. Turns out that that is not true. My brother was over for Thanksgiving and he told me the straight story. My brother was the executor of my grandparents estate and he has all the family documents. Turns out my great grandfather Victor, (surprise, surprise) was born in Germany! Ach du lieber! My family started lying about it's origins during World War I and has kept it up ever since.
I was a little suspicious from the family reunion photos!
