I don't know much about the history of my family. A majority of it identifies as Irish, though I've heard that some Scottish and Danish are in there as well. I've also heard that somewhere along the line one of my great great grandparents were Jewish. I know that back in the day, the family on my dads side owned a majority of Thompsonville, Illinois which is a small farming town. We still own the two grave yards in town, one of which is no longer receiving bodies and is family-only. It's pretty creepy, too, as it's surrounded by thick trees and you can only get to it via a small dirt path.
Don't know much about my moms side except for recent people.
As for the current house we live in, I'm not exactly sure how old it is. I would say it's at least from before the 50's, but I can't be for sure. The doors in the house are old, with door knobs that are closer to my knees than my waist. The locks on them are pretty odd, too. They're like a big ass box slapped on the inside of the door and they use skeleton-type keys. The stairs leading up to the second floor are extremely steep, too. Most of the windows are huge as well. The type that could probably double as a door-frame if you wanted, as you could easily walk through them if the windows and screens were taken out. Speaking of walk-through windows, one of the windows up here actually doubles as a door, so that you can bring furniture up here as the stair case is to steep for anything big that is already assembled.
