I just want to know if anyone has anything interesting. No one will probably post sad but oh well.

Here's mine: I have a great-uncle who was a spy for China during the war. However, most importantly, my grandmother, who was taken into a concentration camp aged 14, as she was a Polish Jew. She jumped out of the cattle trucks through a hole- she'd been destined for Auschwitz and almost certain death. Her parents were already dead. However, she later joined the French resitance and hid a British airman... my grandfather.

Anything interesting or unique about your family?

On my father's side we are related to the Earl of Essex who was part of Queen Elizabeth's Tudor court. She had him executed for being a traitor.
