      • My family was a mixture of Great Britain, European, and one grandmother added Cherokee. My brother and I recently found that we are decedents of the American Revolution.and had ancestors on both side of the Civil War. Genes are all over the place. LOL! My natural color before I started coloring when I was 18, ranged from mouse brown in the winter, to a streaky blonde/red in the summer. I like red and or blonde. But I color my hair to avoid the mouse brown. Even when I now have 25% gray, I still color for the mouseness. What I love is a red-head turning gray. Gorgeous!!

        • I have the kind of red that bleaches to brown before going white. I’m finding that extremely annoying. My dad was mostly Scots but mom was Scots and Swedish both have an awful lot of redheads in the woodpile. Dad had Priscilla Mullen in the family tree and the first Robb came from Scotland in 1723 and fought in the Revolutionary War on our side. Dad said we were on both sides of the Civil War but I’ve only been able to trace down the abolishinists.

          • It is so cool to know about our genealogy. For me, it makes history come alive. I hated history in school until a great college prof. At the same time, my grandpa made it clear as to how recent the Civil War was for him. He lived nearly a century. The Prof would give a lecture and ‘Pop’ told us how WE fit in. Wish my teachers in grade/high school had been more interesting so as to bring that to life. Dates and names are not the important parts. Lives of the people woven in help the student relate. To think our ancestors might have bumped into each other–or shot at each other, makes it amazing!
            And I am still jealous of the natural red. 🙂
