I have been tracing my ancestry too (at least on my father's side — my mother's side is from Poland, and I'm not up to that).  My father's mother was English, and I was sure I'd be able to find some hook into the nobility, but so far it has been commoners everywhere I looked.  My father's father's family is Scots/Irish.  My cousin has been able to trace that line back to King David I of Scotland (though not in a terribly well-verified way SFAIK), so from there we get into all the pre-conquest medieval nobility.  Nonetheless, I'm a little disappointed we haven't found our way to any of the Plantagenets at least…
