    Me greatgrandfather was born on the boat coming over from Ireland! *said with a lilting brogue* Next, I think there's a bit French, English, Dutch. No Scotch - no, thanks, I'm driving. No Scottish, either (but you never can tell with us mongrels, there might be a smidgen). It's quite popular right now to be a Scot. I do look good in plaid... And if you're anywhere near Liverpool, New York (that's the one in the U.S.) this Saturday, there will be Scottish Games then. A lot of fun!

    Cole - Since those of the Church of LDS hold a lot by their ancestry, you might start by hunting in Utah (virtually). There are supposed to be great records there.

    My name Dawnstar is a creation of my own using names from my mother- one she gave me & one she wanted to give me, thus - Matrilineal.

    Thanks, Valerie. I think. Actually, my grandparent fled Europe during WW1. One was from Poland and the other from Russia.

    *cough* I'm German. Really really German. My parents, grandparents, great grandparents, great great -You get the idea- All, German. On my mother's side there's a HUGE family tree at the family castle, guess where all the people on the tree are from? I know that I have some Prussian blood, but look at your geography [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] Really, I'm just German, very very German [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]. That's right ladies and gentleman, no need to worry, I'm this pale for a reason [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Is it just me, or is this the first time I've seen Bjorn in, like....... ever? *jumps on him* WELCOME BAAAAAAAACK!

    I'm strongly Irish, because I found out that my last name is VERY Irish, and also Scottish, German (hmm.. maybe that's where my grossly light skin comes from.. I hate it -_- It took the worst and most agonizing sunburn of my life to get even the slightest tan >_<) and some others over there, and I have some Indian, possibly Canadian Indian, from my dad's side.. not sure, though, I never knew him.. might ask my mom.. I have Canadian Indian in me anyways, because my my great uncle, Frank, the brain of the family, found out that my great-great-grandmother was strongly Cree, so I have strong Cree ancestry. Funny thing is, I'm a Florida native, but I have no Seminole in me whatsoever.. of course, that's probably because I am the only Florida native in the whole entire family O_o

    Had to add to this one. These parts are generally back to great great grandparents.

    Part Romany Gypsy, Danish, Mexican, Polish Jew, Hungarian, English and some African influence.

    Beat that.
