Where were you born and where did you grow up?

I have traced my family tree back to 18th century Germany. My great great great uncle belonged to star of the screen, Errol Flynn. My mother and father both had beards like mine - it runs in the family. I have lived with the Ramsay's since 2013 and I am the brains behind the 'Change' operation.
