Hello, my name is Michael and I have been interested learning about any first generation immigrants on my tree.  I have taken 2 DNA tests which further inspired me to do more research.  My DNS tests reveal close to 100% UK and Ireland.  I have a tree on Ancestry.com. I look forward to utilizing this site to further my research so far.  Anyone with information on the Teal surname in Eastern North and South Carolina would be very helpful to me.    Thanks.
