    Parents from England, grandparents from England, great grandparents from England, great great grandparents from England and great great great grandparents from England.
    That's about as far back as I know.
    How can you be sure that all 32 of you great great great grandparents were from England? I don't even know where most of my great grandparents were born. :s:

    Sorry, I probably hadn't made much sense with that post. Do you speak shudo or sylheti?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    No worries, I speak Sylheti relatively well with parents/older family I still get laughed at sometimes when I don't pronounce certain words properly :lol: I only know a little shudo tbh.
