    Okay, so it doesn't have anything to do with DotS but I don't see the harm in letting it continue. Though if the Dutch and Spanish feel they must argue about la leyenda negra, they can take it to Vetigia Vetustatis. I added an off-topic label to the subject if that makes you feel any better.

    Im sure my ancestors were killing each other at one point or another. On my father's side I'm french which is where I get my last name Juckette and I have no idea what it means and Dutch, van der Heyden. On my mother's side I am Polish and Lithuanian, Olshefski and Miskunish. That side all migrated here to the U.S. in the early 1900's. Juckettes have been here since colonial times. My dutch grandmother was adopted so I don't have any information about that heritage unfortunately. Safe to say I'm descended from poor record keepers .

    I don't know much of my ancestors but it is said that my last name , Wisse, is old Dutch for "the sure" ( I don't know how to translate it correctly) but it is related to a guy who joined a crusade. Thus guy was very good with bow and arrow and he was very sure of his shot. That is also the reason why our family weapon has 3 golden arrows in it. Our family comes from the dutch province Zeeland (Sealand).

    I claim descent from many different English houses. For one Plantagenet. Although I'm mainly Greek and Italian, I'm also part English.

    Ach nee, hoewel ik Vlaanderen zeer zeker meer waardeer dan het huidige Nederland, zowel politiek als cultureel. Zelf kom ik uit Driebergen, bij Utrecht.

    I imagine its the bad propaganda, afterall, like you said, the casualities was for war... the atrocities came after that... but the crimes after war, inflicted on the defeated wasnt exclusive of the spanish, that happen in many wars across the history of mankind... but in the case of spanish in the America,wasnt the massacre the important, it was the mixing of the blood, that make the real diference with other wars, that create a mixed new culture, with elements of both, the aborigen and Iberian... the spanish american culture ( cultura hispanoamericana). There is the real consecuence. i am a consecuence of that jejeje

    Me, I have to look into it a bit more. I'm mostly English, also Ulster Scots, German, and I think Belgian as well.

    Some of my ancestors were among the first colonists of Massachusetts (after the Pilgrims and their colony at Plymouth)

    John Hill Sr., son of William Sr. and Lucy RIVERS HILL, was born 1571 of Poundisford, Somersetshire, England.

    Their son, John HILL Jr., colonist, was born 1608 in Chard, Somerset, England, married in 1629 Frances TILDEN [TILESTON], colonist, and died on 31 May 1664 in Dorchester, Suffolk, MA.
