Yeah....I'm an American...but my great grandparents on my Dad's side are from Norway. My Ma...she was adopted from North Carolina...so who knows? I consider the Nordic folks my main source of family of old....just because I can actually trace them back (1920's) when they got of the boat. So....what ethnic group are you desended from? Or are you a Heinz 57? ( In a way...I am. But the blonde hair and barbarian attitude hails back to the Vikings,I like to think.)

My stepma is Polish. My Dad married her in 1970....when I was 8. I feel half polack. We had family reunions-(not my Dads....my stepma's) and Polka music,kielbasa and pig ear soup was the thing of the day. And booze. LOTSA booze! Welcome to farm country-Michigan. Polacks,Russians,Croations,and Germans. Most of the Norweigians hail from Allegan county,round here. I'll bet Flackbait,being in Holland-Grand Rapids area-is Dutch. Just a guess....or one of the above that populate SW Michigan. Oh-and  Mexicans and hillbillys. Lotsa them too.  Lotsa migrant workers...as agricultre is the main job source here. Do'nt see to many Itailians or Jews....many I lived with in NYC.

I'm part German, a bunch of 'I don't Know', 1/4 "have no idea who THAT grandparent was", and I'm told some J-O-O mixed in there somewhere.

I like Brock Sampson's ancestry: Half Sweedish, one quarter polish, one quarter Winnebago. .

I'm Irish on both sides going back to my grandparents who emigrated to the USA around 1900.  My mother's grandmother was born in Argentina... but to Irish immigrants.  My parents were born in the tristate area in the 1920s.

Homo Erectus.

Very erectus

BounceGiggle.

Sorry.  That old joke just popped into my head.

I'm mostly just your plain old average olive eating Hellenic dude.  Though I think there must have been some Viking blood in the family somewhere as my goatee, when I let it grow out, tends to have this ruddish tinge to it.

Predominantly Irish ancestry on my Father's side of the family. A mixture of Scottish and Irish on my Mother's.

I belong to largest group of so-called European Americans, the Scots-Irish.  My last name is Erwin (there are actually about 250 different spellings). The first Erwin ancestor in the US is believed to be James N. Irvine, who arrived in Pennsylvania in 1739. He died in North Carolina in 1770.

I also have English (Dickinson) blood and one of my great grandmothers was Native American (not sure which tribe).


My wife is Chicago Polish.  Both sets of her grandparents immigrated here in the early 20th century.  Her family name is Szarmach.

A very American mongrel mix. Which isn't the same mix as when I was a kid.

Family on both sides were refugees in the early part of the 20th century and facts about the old country were few and far between. With parents and grandparents now gone, every few years a new fact comes out, mostly due to the efforts of my brother who's the family geneologist and historian.

I used to think one half was Ukrainian. Nope. Ethnic Russians, who lived in the Ukraine.

I used to think the other half was Mexican. Yes and no. My grandmother was Mexican. Probably. My grandfather may have been Japanese. He seems to have simply vanished from the family in the early 1940s and we don't have anyone who can tell us if they know why or exactly when. But the timing near the outbreak of WWII and internment camps is certainly suggestive. Did he run to avoid internment? Save his family from internment?

Scottish on one side, Dutch and English on the other. I mostly identify as Scottish. As one old Scot said on meeting me a few years back, "Andrew Campbell? There's some oatmeal on that name."

Both sides have a fairly long history in Canada. The Dutch component came as loyalists from Pennsylvania after the revolution. An ancestor of mine apparently distinguished himself in the War of 1812 by helping to drag the slain General Isaac Brock off the battlefield. Yeah, not much of a claim to fame, but it's better than nothing.

On the Scottish side, the Campbells are pretty well known, and I'm aware there are still parts of Scotland I might want to avoid if and when I visit there. Geez, one little massacre and people hold a grudge. I've also read a history of my paternal grandmother's family that suggests I might be distantly related to Deacon William Brodie, the inspiration for Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde.
