Hello fellow Swanns! I believe my family is from England but im not sure what part. I was told by my father that our ancestors came to Virginia first and then somehow ended up in a small town in Pennsylvania near Pittsburgh. We currently reside in Illinois and have no clue if we still have ancestors on the east coast. My grandfather, Donald, whom passed away in 2010 had 9 siblings in Pennsylvania. He was born in 1924 if anyone can compare trees. I remember my father also saying that my grandfathers brothers also fought in ww2.
