Je n'ai jamais vraiment touché à ma généalogie, mais je sais que j'ai aussi des ancêtres Allemands. Mais avec les guerres en Europe, souvent c'était compliqué au niveau des frontières lol
Italie et Grèce ont des liens forts aussi depuis l'Antiquité.

Practice for a stranger language isn't always easy, but in more than practicing, maybe can you find a little book in French to compare with another you have at the house? For example if you have tales by Perrault in English, it was 'translated' from old French to modern for a very long time.
I tried to read LOTR in English by the past but size stopped me quickly :psycho:

talking is best way to learn ..........find a friend an chat
when u say word wrong u know in millisecs cos of smile on there face ;-)
I had other g/f's ( other as in not English lol not other species  opps)

Today = aujourd'hui (ojurdui phonetically).


"Arretez vous quand je pourrai". A french guy wouldn't understand what you mean. Considering the idea of the text, isn't it rather "arrêtez vous quand vous pourrez" (stop when you can) ?


Thanks for the "today" word in French.
Arretez vous quand je pourrai, I was trying to say, "Stop when I can" ?
The story of your ancestors is a bit eventful and seemed to be pretty unexpected for you.
No spanish ancestor in your genealogy ?



On my father's father, it goes up to my great grandfather, before him, all French and so on... from my father's mother's side, I only got information up to my 2nd great grandfather, no idea where he was born(yet), but I believe it must have been Italy or surrounding areas cause his last names were Molano Petronilla(or Petrona). But his wife was born in Puerto Rico. He was my paternal grandma's grandfather.

I'm with you Hedd, I always say the same thing. We are all freaking related one way or another, like it or not  :java:
Been looking to join a place for learning languages but I don't find any yet(but learn how to cook German food, etc...) I have a couple of co-workers that speak basic German, so I speak to them in Spanish, them to me some German and back to English, but it's not much cause they don't know much German... Library I work at, offers a program which I love for learning languages and I've been using it alot. It's called mango languages. But like you said, I want to learn by talking to others, "hands on" is the best way to learn anything.

J'adore la genealogie! Been researching for years but this year I decided to go for a paid membership, so I've been discovering much more. Free membership doesn't give you much.

I don't know how they work in Italia, but in France we have several kind of archives: nationales, départementales; et je crois régionales.
By this way, if you have the name and birth date of one of your ancestors in one area, you can find his/her birth act with names of parents and more infos concerning them. I know a lot of archives are now online, but I never tried. At least a part of archives are free.

Maybe for your 2nd great grandfather you can find info on an official act in the family thanks to one of his children.

Oh forgot to mention, I also have ethnicity from Spain and Portugal. But haven't found any ancestor from any country
Do you know during a time Spain and Germany were in the same Empire? Le Saint-Empire Romain Germanique (which had also a part of Italia, and Netherlands). It was under king Charles Quint, grandson of rulers who send Christophe Colomb toward West. It's possible your Spain blood came in Germany with one of subject of Charles Quint, or one people exiled by his grandfather.

Seems you want to tell to someone you can't come to see him/her because you have family and friends coming at home.
If it's that, 'arrêter' doesn't fit here. You can use 'venir' or 'passer'.


Examples.


Bonjour! Famille et amis arrivent aujourd'hui pour une visite. Je viendrai quand je pourrai. ('Viendrai' is the future of 'venir').
