Short amazing story for you.  My mother passed in 2006, and my daughter said, "Mom, you really should put together a family tree for me & the kids so we don't forget our heritage, and before no one is around to ask any questions".  So, I started one on paper & that just got confusing so I went to Ancestry.com.  To shorten this story some I got an e-mail through Ancestry.com from a cousin I never met.  One thing lead to another and she filled in some questions I had & added stuff she knew and we swapped pictures, and stories I've never heard or seen and vice-versa.  It's been fun.  These two fine ladies are my Great Aunts on my father's side.  They were my Great-Grandmother's sisters. 
My Great Aunt Carrie 1865 - 1944 (Denmark)

My Great Aunt Emma 1868 -1900 (Wisc.)

How exciting that you got a response from a cousin. I have always wanted to do a family tree, but don't have nearly enough info.
I LOVE those photos, the ladies look so lovely, you come from beautiful stock. =)
My family comes from Ireland (5 generations ago) and Germany on my dad's side and from Sweeden and Germany (4 generations ago) on my mom's side. I even have some Mohawk indian in me on my mom's side.
Check out what I have for you on my blog: http://wmljshewbridge.blogspot.com/2011/07/blog-post.html

The family resemblance does carry through the lines.

Were you born in the US or in Sicily?

I'm from the Caribbean - Jamaica.

It's almost UNCANNY how you look like your Great Aunt Carrie! It's a striking resemblance :)

Those are really great pictures, and what an AMAZING story! I love stories like that ^.^

I'm a pretty hefty chunk Polish. My dad and his family are pure Polish and my mom has a little bit in her, too. There's also some Irish, German, and a few other things mixed in there.

Ireland on my moms side

I hail from the good old USA. We've had about 17 generations here since the start of our country if not more. Before that Scotland and Germany and a bit of Welsh.
