Stock Family Origins - Egypt??
Posted by: mark stock (ID *****1024) Date: November 02, 2003 at 02:48:28

Hi all

Question:- I am looking for evidence that some STOCKs have origins in souther europe or north africa. Perhaps Egypt? Did they make their way to England via Italy??


First to let some of you know I have hit the jackpot with some of my earlier searches. I have found out much of my father's history and even a brace of siblings I never knew about!

Now I am trying to crack another mystery.

I have inherited an olive skin tone from my father, his was darker still. Although he was and I am "white" (damn I hate categories) he was often mistaken for a black immigrant in his life.

Now I have found a new brother he tells me that his retina structure has been identified as not that of a "white" person.

We had often suspected my father's ancestors were immigrants - so far I cannot find any records to support this - but snippets of memories indicate Egypt or similar as an origin.

Hence my question.

Many thanks

MS
