Funny I never thought of it. Mom's side looks like 6 generations on her moms side, maternal grandfather 3 generations, fathers side paternal 4 generations maternal unknown but came in the mid 1600's.

My father's parents came from Poland with their two oldest daughters. My mother's side I believe is 5 generations. My mother's Great Grandfather came from Canada and it is several more generations back that came from France to Canada.

It acually depends on what side of the family.
My dads side his mother was 1st generation here from Sweden. I would 3 generation there and on his fathers side I would be 4 generation.
Now on my Mothers side 4 generation one side and on the other we not sure because I'm at a brick wall. On another side of my Mothers family I have found some came over on the Mayflower.

Many of our relatives came from Belgium to Wisconsin around 1880. We're 4th generation American.
My DH's family has claim to having the 1st white child born in Ahnapee, Kewaunee County, Wis. which was in 1851.
One of my DH lines is suppose to go back to the Mayflower (I haven't verified this), and related to Bush, Cheney along with a few other presidents.

Annie, I know what you mean - most of my family is basically pretty easy to trace because have been here for so long - the only "late comers" are one line of my mother's family who came from Scotland in 1837 and have them from the minute they reached these shores, but haven't tried to to research in Scotland yet.

I'm feeling a bit of Heinz-57....

Up my dad's paternal side I'm 4 & 5th generation:
Barlement - France (but they were German)
Forsythe/McGinnis - Ireland

Dad's maternal side I'm 3rd generation: both Anderson, one from Denmark & the other from Norway.

Mom's paternal side: 3rd generation Sweden (Spjut/Wenell or Johansdotter/Turnquist).

Mom's maternal side: 3rd generation - Gebert from Germany OR 4th generation - Swenson from Sweden & Anderson from Noway.

No wonder I like researching my BF's family ~ they came over from France & Poland. They are easier to find cuz they've lived on THIS side of the pond for 250 more years than my family!!

On my paternal side 11 generation
On my maternal side 12 generation

My son told me the story of while he was in military he ran into someone who was complaining about all the immigrants they were letting into this country - my son, as only he could do, looked at him disdainfully and said "To me, you are all immigrants." He felt entitled as his paternal grandmother was 1/2 Choctaw!

I am a seventh generation American.

My husband's family however came across on the Mayflower. I think that is back 13 generations. He traces his lineage and claim to the descendents of the Mayflower through Edward Fuller

I thought something about me was either split or half______ LOL. I guess that is why when asked, I usually reply that I am a Native American. Born here, belong here and in my case, chose to stay here when I could have inherited a farm in Sweden at the age of 18 if willing to go live there. I am interested in my heritage, don't get me wrong, but I am so happy to be an American! luv,viv

Good question, I have often wondered. My dad came here at 18 months and my mom was born here of immigrant parents. Does that make me 1st generation American? or 1 1/2 generation A or 2nd gen A?

Been hear so long :)

Hubby family as well...

I have counted 11 generations on my paternal side

And 12 generations on my maternal side

I have to trace my paternal grandmother's family back 5 generations before we have any out side of USA and that is only Canada...we don't travel very far!

There are some Native American marriages...but so hard to trace.

On my Dad's side the Murray side has came in America from Scotland several generations before though I don't know how long with the Morris side (from England).

On my Mom's side my grandmother's generation was the first generation of Koski's (koskinen back in finland) to be raised in America. And my maternal grandfather (Unto Pitkapaasi) was basically born and raised in finland before he arrived to America. So it's hard to say what generation I was be.

I am really enjoying all the replies! It is interesting to see so many from the Mayflower, Indian Tribes, etc.

Guess I should have said, " My maternal gr-grandmother came from Ireland, the other from Germany. My gr-maternal grandfathers - one from Ireland and one from Germany. All the same on my fathers' side except we think that one gr-grandmother was from Sweden but I can't certify my fathers' side."

My cousin has done most of the research on my dad's side and I don't have all that information but I do know the Bolling's came over around 1660 to 1680 from Bradford, Leeds, England and settled in the Williamsburg, VA and surrounding areas.

On my mother's side, I would be 10th generation through the (Mathieu) Agee' line when the Huguenots came over from France. On the Jones side, I can only go back 6 generations because no one has ever figured out where Jeremiah (he married Susannah Agee) came from or who he is related to but we figure he was born around 1777, just don't know if it was in this country or overseas.

I haven't done any research in at least 10 years (until I came here and found this forum ~ lol) so I don't have info on my Tucker, Higginbotham, Kirkpatrick, Mercer, Ashbrook and a couple of other lines but from all I have gathered, they have been here a long time, way before Ellis Island came into existance with most coming over in the 1600 or 1700s.

My Dad's main line goes back to one generation before the Revolution, because the son fought in the Revolution. In fact, the local SAR chapter is named for him. My Mom's side is as yet unfinished, but I imagine it will be similar. We have a "First Family" certificate from the local Historic Society which gets us back prior to 1800, which is around when our town was founded. Since the bulk of her side is Scots/Irish and German, I expect that side too will turn out to have come here sometime right before the Revolutionary War. So much to learn, so little time!

This really depends on how you define American doesn't it?!! I am a first gen on my mother's side as she was born in Canada, but, when I trace her lines back, at least one line starts with an Acadian settler/pioneer marrying a Native American so we were "American" long before anyone who came over from Europe. My father's lines all seem to originate from England with some coming over on the Mayflower or shortly after. There is a possibility of Native blood coming into play on these lines too.

I think I figured mine wrong. I am the second generation born in America on my father's side.Both my grandparents and great-grandparents immigrated but my father was the first born here. On my mother's side I would be third generation, both my great-grandfather and great-great-grandfather immigrated here, but my grandparents-and parents were born here.

Good morning all. This is an interesting question because I do not know. I've been told that on my mother's side of the family they came here sometime after 1620. I am not able to verify that. Also, at smoe point in time there was a museum in Boston Ma. for the five Oliphant brothers who started the line in this country. Having never been there, I do not know if it existed or if it did does it still exist. On my fathers side of the family, his mother's family are German and I have no idea as to when they reached these shores. Like I said, it is an interesting question and one to ponder. Now go and enjoy the day. Larry

I guess I'm 2nd generation on my dad's side. My Dad's parents came from Sweden to America in the early 1900's. My great grandma on my Mom's side was born in Virginia in 1835. Otherwise everyone else came to America from England and Ireland in the 1800's.

Oh I forgot to mention (my mother would kill me!) that I have Native American lineage too. My mom belongs to the Little River Band of Odawa (Ottawa) Indians but me and my siblings are 1/16 shy of being able to join!!! I've traced our native line back quite a ways and it's very interesting all the Indian names! Our main lineage names are Ching-gwon and Nebaynageezhick. So on her Indian side, we are first Americans!

I'm a 2nd generation Swede. My husband is a 12th generation as some of his (many times) grandparents came over on the Mayflower. I've seen others' family trees say he descends from the Montauk Native American tribe from Long Island. One of his Dutch ancestors married a Montauk woman back in the 1600's. If that is true there is no way of figuring what generation he would be there. Interesting though and there are actual records on the internet.

On my father's side, I am a second generation, since he was the first generation American of Norwegian immigrants.
On my mother's side - from her father's side, I am an 11th generation from Joseph Bixby who arrived in America in about 1645. Her mother's side was more recent - immigrating from Norway and there I'm a fifth generation.
That give me 75% Norwegian heritage. My ancestors are no doubt spinning in their graves that I chose to live in Denmark and speak Danish and not Norwegian. Younger generations!

My great grandparents were born in Ireland. I had one great grandmother born in France and one more great great grandfather born in Germany.

As my husband was born in Hong Kong, I guess that makes my kids 1st generation Americans.

My grandmother was born in the Netherlands (my dad's side) and came here in 1902 with her parents and family. My grandfathers line (my dads side) came from the Netherlands also but several generations before that in 1848.

On my mother side, the paternal line goes back to them coming over in 1634. And on the maternal line they've been over almost as long. I have a Revolutionary War ancestor on that line. On the maternal line I have 3 Mayflower ancestors. And one line is my brick wall.

My mother's father's side goes back at least 8, maybe 9 generations.

That all depends on what line you are talking about. On My father's main line I am at least seven generations. On My mothers main line I can only go back to 1800 in Maryland. Bopth are common names.

I am fourth generation on both my parents side. On my mothers side both of her great-parents came over with her grandparents.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway.
The good fortune to run into the ones that I do and the eyesight to tell the difference.

This isn't a simple answer for me. My mother's father's parents came from Germany. On my mother's mother's side, we go back 2-3 (?) generations to find Native American (Onondaga Indian). I'm not sure about the others on my mother's side. On my father's side, it's even harder. All I know is that we had a person who was a revolutionary solider, one branch of family who came here in 1650, & another branch that came here in 1640. I can't even tell you from where!

I thought it might be fun to see what generation of American each of us is!

I am third generation on my mothers' side and we think the same on my fathers' side.

My brother-in-law had his g-g-g-g-g-grandfather (who knows how many) in the boat with Washington when he crossed the Delaware river!
