    Well, my not too recent paternal ancestors stumbled out of Nthn Africa roughly 30,000 years back. They took a lazy right and wandered around where Saudi Arabia is now bordered. They realised it bloody hot and dry, and the were bloody sick of sand in their undies so they back tracked a little then took a hard left. After beach bashing for a while (10000 years or so) they decided that mediteranian (sp) sth Italy looks a bit of alright. After knocking around there for a bit they continued the coastline ramble and happened upon Spain, where from the sounds of it they thought it looks ok too, with the sun, sand and easy women ;)

    I partook in a National Geographic Gene study a few years ago where my DNA was mapped and tracked.

    I would assume my ancestors came out on the first fleet, whether they were convicts or not I am not sure BUT I do not care. I am proud to think that my ancestors were convicts as I like naughty people...you can have the goody two shoes LOL

    Now, don't try and tell me that they could of been murderers and rapists, as we all know that they would of already been hanged in Old England. Was a known fact that they did very little to get sent to Australia.
    The British actually thought they were punishing us, I personally think they did us a favour....
