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."
