I've been thinking about my family history a lot recently.

I consider myself English through and through but my ancestry points away from that. My Mother is Scottish but was adpted and we know nothing of her real parents except they too where almost certainly Scottish. My Father is also English but his parents where Irish (Garvey being an ancient Irish surname) and came over to England to work in the coal mines of northern England. There's rumours of Spanish ancestory on my Grandmothers side but I haven't yet delved that deep but i'm certainly interested in knowing my roots.

So what about you guys? Have any of you traced your family trees or thought about doing it?
