Did you know 2018 marks the tricentennial of New Orleans? The city is now 300 years old making it one of the oldest in the US! No wonder it’s one of the top travel destinations of the world this year!
New Orleans has always been a melting pot of cultures. All of my ancestors on my mom’s side immigrated from Europe to New Orleans a long time ago. Last year I took a DNA test with @ancestry to see exactly where I come from. My ancestors in New Orleans came from the Alsace region of France, Germany, and Austria.
Ancestry has always fascinated me. It might be because I’m from the US. Living in a relatively “new” country, I’ve always known my family originated from another part of the world.
Do you know the origins of your family?
