Through years of comfortable homogenizing, I have a family of Americans X) . If you go a bit back I have a good bit of most of Europe; Brit, Scot, Irish, German, Polish, Czech... The list goes wayyy on.

One-quarter German, Three-quarters mutt (English, Welsh, who-knows-what-all). My family came to America in the late 1800's and settled in Texas. We ain't had no need to leave since.  TongueOut At least we left Germany before all that Reich business. Frightfully uncouth, those Reich people.

I doth be descended from British ancestry ~ a huge descent, as I came down minus a parachute.  Wink

Born: Bulawayo, Rhodesia, 11 September 1967 with a loud noise at one end and no responsibility at the other.  Buggedout That sad state of affairs continues to this day.

Mother: Afrikaans from Dutch descent. Mom's mom was a translator during the Anglo Boer War.

Father: English / Jewish descent ~ his dad came from Cornwall originally.

Me ~ adopted as a baby in the then Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) by the two people above who had no idea at all of what they were letting themselves in for.  Buggedout

Shortly after I was born, there were about four hours of darkness across the entire country. Birth of the anti-Christ, you ask?  Buggedout

Nahh.... I was born at 02h30 in the morning.  TeddyR

Due to major scientific research, I have discovered that my family history goes back well over half a decade.  TeddyR

Homo Erectus.

Very erectus

BounceGiggle.

Sorry.  That old joke just popped into my head.


In Melbourne we have a free daily newspaper that is distributed by the public transport companies to read on trains/buses/trams etc.  In it they have a section called 'overheard' where people sms in the stupid things they hear other people say in public.  Funnily enough I read one last week that went like this:

Boy 1:  "Did you know that man came from Homo Erectus"

Boy 2:  "I'll Homo your erectus."


 TeddyR

Anyways back on topic I am 3/4 Australian [and by that I mean English] 1/4 Lebanese [grandfather on mum's side].  Look at the rest of my extended family and you might pick it, since they generally seem a bit more european - slightly tanned etc.  But I must have got the short straw of the gene pool since I'm as white as a spotlight, so you couldn't really pick it.

Apparently someone on my dad's side did a family tree search years and years ago and somehow linked us to "Longshanks" - King Edward 1st.

Watch out people, royalty is in the house...  TongueOut

Looks like the war is on Dean.  One of my distant ancestors (Sir William de Irwyn) was armor bearer and secretary to Robert the Bruce.

English mainly, back at least 4 generations anyway.  One Great Gran was Welsh.

Mostly American, meaning probably a lot of different places, but I am mainly Iroquois (Seneca & Mohawk) and Irish from my mother's side, Scots and English from my father's side. Although I have no actual proof of this I've been known to say that my ancestors fought on both sides of the Revolutionary War.

Clan Campbell were loyal to Robert the Bruce, so I guess I'm on Trek's side.

I'm a wide variety of northern European descent.

A bit of Dutch on both sides of the family.  Irish and German on my mother's side. 
My last name is Davis, which is English, and I get that from my father's side.

I've work on my families history for about 30 years so I could compile a rather large assortment of nationalities dating back several 100 years as my earliest known verified family records are from 1162, but I'm mainly Scottish with English and a little Irish being the primary family origins there are a few from continental Europe.

The first of my family settle in Virginia Colony around modern day Fredericksburg in 1635

There have always been rumblings in my family that I can trace my ancestry to the volunteers who annexed the un-named country north of South Africa's borders in 1890 and named it after Cecil John Rhodes.

It is also likely that the volunteer soldiers who formed the British South Africa Company and fought the Matabele armies of King Lobengula (and died in the attempt Buggedout) at the Shangani River in 1893 also form part of my family tree.  Their exploits are documented in the film Shangani Patrol. Smile

Other than that, the only family tree I can lay claim to was the one I fell out of when I was a kid.   Buggedout TeddyR

I'm Tlingit, or a native of Southeast Alaska for those not in the know.

Due to the fact that American Indian blood comes in handy for quite a few things, I have a blood quantum card that states that I am 11/32 Tlingit, something that never fails to amuse me.
