Using this for research for school,
We live in the US near Wasington DC. My Dad had his DNA tested (National Geographic and Ancestry.com) and he is entirely Irish with a smattering of Spanish (from Spanish Armada that crashed off the Irish coast centuries ago). In any case, his Mom's maiden name is Martin. To add to Jeanie's comment below, the name is of Irish ancestry as well.
trying to find my ancestors
I'm assuming most of my family is of celtic descent (ginger hair)
My Grandmother's maiden name was Martin and I thought I was Scotland? But looks to be more Ireland.
Born Raised in California, My Fathers from Missouri, (David Martin) his Fathers From Kentucky ( Hurley Martin) Don't know much about my ancestry, All I know is we are hard workers, and most of the males I know die early, and are acceptable to alcoholic addiction. very stubborn.
I grew up in New Hampshire. My father is from Kansas and my mother who's maiden name was Dunn grew up in the Irish part of Lowell Massachusetts. We have a pretty large family, Catholics go figure. But I asked them where our ancestors were from and all they know is from Ireland. I think they came over during the great potato famine.
