This is a fun thread, I love stuff like this :)

I don't remember the specifics (like exactly how much) but I am mostly Irish and German, and a lil bit Polish, Dutch, and Pennsylvania Dutch (I think I'm remembering everything lol)

My boyfriend is half Dutch, half hillbilly (haha, his mom isn't sure about her background) but I may look into it eventually when marriage/baby time comes, because I think it's interesting to know. :)

On the census I put, Germano Celtic American. boobalah put Franco Germanic American. We'll see if they question it.

When my grandsons were visiting their cousins in Pensacola, they were all talking about what their mixes are.

My grandsons said, "We are half Mexican, 1/4 Japanese and the rest is a bunch of white people. We call ourselves Japicans."

This is so interesting!!

My Dad is mostly German with some Irish and Cherokee mixed in
My Mom is half Japanese and half Hawaiian

Hubby is 100% Mexican-American. My last name is Mexican and I look Mexican, so people assume that's what I am. Little, old abuelitas always yell at me for turning my back on my heritage by not learning Spanish. They're always so confused when I reply that I'm not Mexican in flawless French. It's kind of hilarious.

06-16-2010, 12:51 PM
Polish and maybe either Russian or Ukrainian on my mom's side; French-Canadian, with a few drops of First Nations, and German on my dad's. Somewhere in Montreal there's a park named for one of my dad's ancestors, and we have a ceremonial sword presented to someone on my mom's side for fighting in Catherine the Great's army

Dad's side: German
