1/4 German on my father's mother's side
1/4 unknown European on my father's father's side
1/2 mostly English on my mother's side

with an iota of a drop of Native American blood. Like, literally, we know that my grandmother's grandmother's grandmother was minisculely fractionally Indian but we don't know exactly how much.

Golly Mina!

Wow. Just wow. A lot of culture on our board!!! :]

According to my father his mom's grandpa, my dad's great grandfather, thus my great great grandfather, was a direct descent of the Medici family. And about a week ago I was reading about them in my history textbook. They were rich bankers. Eventually they were driven out of Italy. All during the Renaissance Era.

I have asked him to show me the family tree on his side but that's in the Philippines. So boo him. But I did ask my grandma. She confirms it. And apparently I have the "Medici" nose. So yeah.......I dunno.

I'm mostly German and English, but I dunno how much. My mom's side of the family is all from New England, mostly Massetchusetts. Our family's been traced back to the Mayflower, we had two direct ancestors who were on it haha. I have a little Scottish blood and a bunch of German on my dad's side.

Apparently we're ancestors of John and Samual Adams (the second president, and what not)

My ancestors on my mom's side were on the ship AFTER the Mayflower. I bet our ancestors partied together :-D

American, of over half German extraction. Quarter French to compliment the German, and the rest totals too little to warrant mention.

3/4 nerd...  old school.




Biologically, in decreasing order of prevalence:  Irish, German, Scots, Huguenot French...  There's a rumour in my dad's
family that one of his ancestors was Cherokee Indian, and he likes to believe it's true...  I'm fairly certain it's not.

Irish and Czechleslovakian mostly. There's some German, Scottish, Swedish, and apparently Mongolian in there somewhere.

I only look Irish though

There's a girl in my pre-cal class who is a direct descendant of John Wilkes Booth, the man who shot Abe Lincoln.

By the way, her last name isn't Booth. I said direct descendant, not direct male-line descendant.

If you ever want to start a fight with her, just mention the abundance of historical sources (some fairly reputable ones)
that say Booth had no children, and...  hell, what was her name?  [googlegoogle] Ogarita wasn't even his illegitimate
child...  (Mind you, I take no side in the discussion, but there is ample evidence on both sides.)
