That's not exactly what I said. I said that I knew that I was a
Campbell. Many years ago, my Grandfather Campbell told me that our
family was Scotch-Irish. (That means that my forefathers were
originally from Scotland, spent some time in Northern Ireland, and then
came to America.) My grandfather also told me that my family entered
America through the port of Philadelphia, then came down the Great Wagon
Road and ended up in the Piedmont of North Carolina. Unfortunately, I
was not interested in genealogy at that young age and didn't question
him further. I have now spent almost 30 years looking for information
that he possibly could have given me in a few minutes.

Jim Campbell wrote not to laugh but now he knows he's of Scottish
descent so probably a "real" Campbell.
