I and my brother and a cousin have been poking around at it for years now. We've traced the maternal line back to a Ross family who arrived in Charleston, SC, in 1772, and settled in Chester District (now Chester County SC). Of course they picked the one area where the mixture of Germans from Pennsylvania coming down the Wagon Road and Scotch-Irish coming in from the already-settled coastal plain did NOT result in a variant of the mountain dulcimer developing from the zitter, so I cannot say I have taken up an ancestral instrument.

On Dad's side we go rather further back to a Desrosiers in Burgundy in the early 17th century who settled in Quebec - except there is a little glitch in the records between Antoine Lafrenier elder and younger. We'll find it.
