My great grandfather emmigrated from germany, so I guess you could say that I'm 1/8 German.

Welsh, Irish, Belgian.

So I guess you could say that I am an insane chocolate quaffing drunk who likes to molest sheep...

2/3 isn't bad I guess.

Great Grandparents both came straight from Denmark, both being native Danes. Although I have a strong tie to Denmark on that side of the family I am also German, Scottish, Welsh and of course English.

I should note that the Scottish line comes from a nasty clan of Scots. Let's just say they weren't too friendly... Danish though is still more present than anything for me. If my Grandfather on that side had not passed away when I was a child I would most likely be speaking Danish.

Mix of the following:

-German
-English
-Mexican
-Spanish
-French
-Native American

Probably more, but can't account for it all at this time.

Im mostly German, my great-grandpa's father's (or his father, im not quite sure which..) famlily immigrated to America way back when. Thats on my dad's side.

As for my Mom's side, im not quite sure, seeing as how she wasnt with us while I was around for very long ( :( )


So I always tell people "Mostly german" though Im sure theres other heritages in there too :wink:

My grandmother (by my fathers side) is German and my great grandfather (by my mother's side) is supposed to be german too. The rest of my family is Venezuelan, I was born in venezuela too. I moved to the US on August 2005.

Irish/Scottish, German, Polish, English, Indian. Listed in most to least, roughly. Grandpaps in WWII, ball turret gunner. Great-great-*mumble*-grandfather was a Colonel in the War of Independence. Great-great*mumble*grandfather probably fought and died in the Uncivil War. Records are sketchy. Amusing story. A great-great*mumble*grandmother of mine chopped off her husband's head when he refused to participate in the War of Northern Aggression. :D It's true, I swear.

As you might have guessed, family on all side has been in America for a number of generations. In the case of one full blooded Cherokee, quite a bit longer. Mostly in the Deep South. *sips Mint Julip and removes speck from white tux*
