We had a Spiers family reunion last year and our family tree was posted on the wall. The name Spiers is from an Irish descent, but I know we also have German heritage. So my particualar family is Irish/German. My great grandparents (my dad's parents) are from Ireland. Hope this helps answer your question. |
