My father was Dutch, a grandmother Belgian & a great grand mother German. So mainland Europe features quite heavily!
Things get even more complicated however, my Father in law was born in India, and several of his relatives were/are resident in New Zealand.
Of course there are also branches of my tree that have emigrated to America, South Africa, Australia...
The only continents I don't know of are South America & Antarctica!

Despite the wide spread most of my successful research has been with relatives in England. Fortunately it's helped by both Mother & father having uncommon surnames ;)

Immigrant Polish Airmen during WW2.  But imagine my surprise when I found that a lot of them were actually born in Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Germany, Russia and, following WW2 changes, the birth places of many who were actually born in Poland were now in Belarus and the Ukraine.  It's confusing but interesting!
