I have a little bit of Irish, Polish, English and Indian (Choctaw) mixed into my family lineage but for the most part I am 85% German lineage.
When I think of German heritage there are a few things that come to my mind and probably come up in other’s minds that may not be German.
The appealing thing about this new land was that they would have religious freedom along with the freedom to build a life and perform their craft or trade how they wanted to in this new land.
Many of the Germans at this time were protestant and the thought of religious freedom was very appealing as many German immigrants migrated to Pennsylvania.
I know that its about me and my culture so I don't expect much..i just need some suggestions if any... Our certified Educators are real professors, teachers, and scholars who use their academic expertise to tackle your toughest questions.
Educators go through a rigorous application process, and every answer they submit is reviewed by our in-house editorial team.
Also, read about the cultural norms of those countries and see how they relate to your experiences growing up in your family, and how they relate to your family, beliefs, and practices now. What is the relative age of your family-those you are trying to interview. In this way, it might be less personal (you won't be revealing any "family secrets") but you could still be giving insight and information into a culture and a heritage that you share with others. I have talked to my grandparent on my mother and fathers side already..still not enough info..
Maybe you can ask more general questions to them and then extrapolate how their behavior fits into the broader culture. BUT they had given me a little more information that I wasn't aware about..
but still stuck because there really isn't much information at all about my family,period.
Does anyone by any chance have a suggestion on how I can maybe stretch my essay out to make it long enough?
