I honestly have no clue what my ancestral nationality was nor have I ever cared. Other relatives have guessed at it and even claimed we were related to some historically famous people. I always figured they got told that from some website that tells everyone they have at least one famous relative in their family history just to make them feel good about the money they spent to that site. Personally I consider myself an American and can trace that back for at least four generations.

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.

Comes in handy, yes, indeed.  By the way, do you sell vials of your blood?  My current supplier is only 7/32 Tlingit.  I'll use it responsibly; I swear it has nothing to do with page 366 of the Necronomicon...

Oh, I forgot to mention. My dad and his numerous siblings on the fully-Scottish side of the family all have red hair. I sometimes refer to them as the Harkonnen side of the family.  TeddyR

I'm three-quarters Polish and a quarter German.  There's a tiny bit of Swiss in there somehwere as well.


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.
Nope no Dutch or mexican! All I really know about my ancestory is that I'm Part British, Irish and 1/64 Cherokee. I guess i have a lot of the rest of Eurupe in me too, nobody ever really kept any family records on my dads side of the family. I do know from my moms side of the family that I'm related to Henry Clay.

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

At least you can cite a source, that's more than I can do.  I think the above joke was from a movie but darned if I can recall which one.

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.

That's how I am, too.  I sun burned rather easily as a child, still do actually.

Funny thing is when I was a young teenager I had to retake my passport photos several times as I had been to the beach recently and they kept coming out making me look like an American Indian.  The long hair didn't help, either, nor the fact I was wearing a suede jacket that had a faux buckskin look to it.

The guy taking the photos was none too amused as me mum made him retake the photos almost a dozen times.

I feel I should warn you that p.366 contains one of the many "traps" that the Mad Arab placed into that accursed tome to waylay the unprepared. But if you say you're going to use it responsibly...

On my father's side:

* My grandfather was born in Sicily in 1898 and came to the U.S. around 1917, I believe.
* My grandmother was born in the U.S., but her parents were born in Italy.

So, pretty much 100% Italian heritage on my father's side.

On my mother's side:

* Both of my grandparents were born in the U.S.  My grandfather grew up on a farm in North Carolina, but moved to Massachusetts when he was a young man.  My grandmother's father was born in England and I believe there is also some German ancestry if you go back a few generations.

The Italian heritage was definitely dominant in my family while I was growing up.  But you'd never suspect I had any Sicilian blood if you saw my blue eyes, blond hair, and light complexion.

General northern German/Irish/Scots European, with a soupcon of Jewish way back.  More directly, my mother is English  (born there), I was raised as English as American.

I am some sort of blend of English, Irish, Welsh, Scottish, Polish, Italian, and possibly French. 

My great-grandfather on my dad's side came over from England in 1914 or thereabouts.  His older brothers had all enlisted in the Great War, and he wanted to as well, but his father said, "No, I won't let all my boys go to this damned war" and basically dragged him on to a boat bound for America.

Scottish and Irish for me, though I'm also curious to what else there is in there, since my dad was adopted though it was within the family, but I don't know who my dad's real father was.
